Florida Reels Fishing Charters LLC

Florida Reels Fishing Charters offers a whole range of trips from different locations. This listing is all about Tarpon fishing in Boca Grande. Captain Christopher is a Florida Native with years of experience. His main priority is to take you where the fish are biting. So, who better than him to show you around?

He specializes in Tarpon pursuits. Drift fishing is the name of the game when going after Tarpon in Boca Grande. While you can opt for longer trips, the beauty of fishing in the area is that you can catch the trophy fish even with a 4-hour trip.

Florida Reels Fishing Charters operates a Clearwater boat with enough room for up to 4 anglers. Not only does it provide a comfy ride, but it also comes with bare necessities such as an ice box.  Plus, all rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price so you can focus on what really matters – fishing.

The captain will cover the fishing license, too. However, all the trips are strictly catch and release, so you’re expected to return Tarpon back to the water. Snapping a photo is a must, of course. How else could you brag about your prize catch?

Book your trip now and hit the water with your friends and family on the Florida Reels Fishing Charters boat. Kids are welcome, so don’t forget to bring the little ones, too!
