Fish the world famous inshore waters of western Florida with Reel Charter Fishing! Located in Englewood, it’s at the heart of some of the best saltwater spots worldwide, including Charlotte Harbor and Boca Grande. Captain Kevin Lubold is an experienced angler who specializes in light tackle backcountry fishing.

You’ll be fishing aboard a 21’ Intrepid Flats tower boat powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. The boat was designed specifically for shallow water fishing by a brand well-known for manufacturing premium quality boats. It has a complete range of safety equipment as well as GPS and a live bait tank, to make your fishing experience more fruitful.

The crew will provide you with all the fishing equipment, mainly Daiwa. Guidance and limited instruction is provided in all types of light tackle fishing techniques, so don’t worry if you’re not an experienced angler, you’ll still have a great shot at reeling one in.

These waters are ideal for hunting Snook, Trout, Redfish, and Tarpon. Known as the Tarpon Capital of the World, Boca Grande is the place to be when it comes to fishing for the Silver King. Capt. Kevin usually uses light tackle to catch his prey. If you decide to keep some of your catch for a nice meal upon your return home, he’ll be more than happy to clean and fillet your fish.

Whatever your skill level, these waters have something to offer you. Skilled anglers will be able to really test their skills against some tough opposition in the waters, while newcomers will get to learn from the best – you may even get hooked yourself!

Reel Charter Fishing is calling you aboard to some of the world’s most abundant fishing spots, so come have some serious fun!
