Awesome Fishing Charter-Boca Grande

Gilchrist Avenue
Boca Grande FL, United States

Awesome Fishing in Boca Grande is run by Captain Keiland Smith who is an avid fisherman and a famous radio show host. He possesses unparalleled knowledge of the fisheries in Florida which has made his radio show popular worldwide.

Awesome Fishing will take you on inshore excursions by day or night, depending on your preference and teach you how to successfully catch the action-packed Florida Snook on fly rods. This is a child and elderly friendly charter, so bring the kids and grandparents along for a great family adventure.

You will fish aboard a 20 foot Hughes flats boat, with a capacity for 3 guests. It is powered by an 115 HP Yamaha V Max engine with a maximum cruising speed of 45 knots. This fast vessel is equipped with a GPS, a fishfinder, and a VHF radio, as well as all the necessary safety equipment such as fire extinguishers, life jackets, and a CPR-trained crew.

The boat also has a wireless trolling motor to make it super quiet on the shallow waters in order not to spook the fish, and an icebox where you can store you catch.

Awesome Fishing can take you fishing by day for Snook, Redfish and Spotted Seatrout, or you can take a nighttime trip and fish exclusively for Snook, which has excellent game qualities and great food value, too.

Captain Keiland will teach you how to fish using fly fishing equipment, and provide rods, reels, tackle, lures and drinks on your trip. He will also clean and fillet your catch so you can take it home for a nice meal.

About the Captain

Keiland Smith
Boca Grande, Florida, United States
Member since February 2016
I have been a lifelong fisherman of Florida and a Fly fisherman since the age of eight, cutting my tooth of Largemouth Bass on the fly. I started guiding Freshwater for the Village Grader Orvis Fly Shop in Lakeland, Florida. Started teaching Fly tying in the 80’s with the Lakeland Fly tiers and started guiding saltwater for Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, and Trout. Favorite species are the Florida Snook. Night time fishing lit structures with a Snook are a specialty, too. I am keen on teaching the Do’s and Don’t’s of Snook fishing to children of the ages of 8 and plus. I have guided to two IGFA International Game World Records in my career and have also been the host of Awesome Fishing Radio over 16 years starting on the AM Radio Dial and moving to the Podcast and iPhones Podcast.
