Yellow Tales Fishing Charters

Join Yellow Tales Fishing Charters to explore the beautiful shallow waters of Boca Grande! Heading out of Bokeelia on Pine Island, you’ll be in one of the most renowned inshore fishing spots in the world. Captain Travis Murphy is a passionate angler who loves fishing for Tarpon, so you can expect the seasonal trips for Silver King to be very exciting.

Trips take place aboard a 24’ Avenger center console boat designed for fishing the flats. Powered by a 300 HP Yamaha engine, so you won’t waste any valuable fishing time getting to the most productive fishing spots. Onboard, you’ll find a range of navigational systems to put you on the fish, as well as a wireless trolling motor and a live bait tank.

All the necessary gear for a productive fishing trip awaits you on board, including tackle, lures, and live bait. Capt. Travis will also clean and fillet your catch at the end of the trip for you to have a delicious meal after an exhilarating day, or just to fill the freezer. 

These waters are very rich when it comes to marine life, so there’s always something you can go after. Targeting primarily Snook, Redfish, Snapper, and Grouper, you’ll also get to target Tarpon from April to July. Boca Grande is known as the “Tarpon Capital of the World,” so where better to be?

With fishing licenses included, all you need to do is bring some drinks and snacks, and settle in for a fantastic day on the water. Anglers of all skill levels are welcome aboard, with experts being able to take advantage of the great game fish here, and beginners getting all the help needed to make their first catch.

Come have an unforgettable time in the prolific inshore waters of Boca Grande with Yellow Tales Fishing Charters!
