He loves showing his guests the fabulous inshore fishing that southwest Florida has to offer and provides flexible and informative fishing trips for everyone from the novice to the most avid of anglers.

Capt. Darrin’s 24 ft Morgan is perfect for fishing the flats in the area. With an unusually wide berth, it provides ample opportunity to move around and provides a very comfortable and dry ride. A shade canopy over the center of the boat ensures all anglers are safe and comfortable even in the heat of the Floridian summer.

Covert Operations Fishing Charters target all the desirable game fish that can be found in the inshore areas of southeast Florida, including Redfish, Trout, Snook, Shark and Tarpon. They fish with live bait and Penn and Shimano tackle, the use of which is included in the price of the trip. At the end of the day, they will even clean and fillet your catch for you to take home for a tasty dinner.

Captain Darrin is a USCG licensed and insured captain who has been fishing the areas around Pine Island, Sanibel Island, Captiva Island and Cayo Costa for three decades. His extensive knowledge of the local area and its many inshore fish species will benefit all anglers who come aboard, whether they have never before felt the thrill of catching a fish before or are experienced fishermen.
