Wreckless Surf Fishing Charters

Wreckless Surf Fishing Charters is here to get you the fish of a lifetime. Get seasick? No Worries! This is land-based Shark Fishing.

Here you’ll have access to the beautiful beach Gulf of Mexico. While you wait for "Jaws’ your guide will have several rods out for Pompano, Whiting, Drum, and other fish for you to reel in. The name of the game around here is heavy tackle fishing, which is what you’ll be doing on the day of your trip. Astro and crew will provide rods and reels, as well as lures and live bait.

The fish in these waters include Tiger Shark, Blacktip Shark, Bull Shark, Lemon Shark, Nurse Shark, and more. Note that Captain Astro practices catch-and-release for shark species. most sharks in Florida are protected, so you won’t be taking any sharks home with you after the trip. As many as 6 people can join these excursions. You’ll make your way to the fishing grounds on foot, so be sure to dress for current weather conditions and bring only as much as you can carry. Expect to get in touch with Astro before the trip so you know where to meet and how to get there.

Everyone in your group should buy a local fishing license ahead of time. Also, a completed Shark-Smart Fishing Educational Course and the Shore-Based Shark Fishing Permit are necessary. (Both of these are free, but are required by the state of Florida for anyone age 16 or older.) You can find out more online, including exceptions that may apply.

Plan to dress in layers and appropriate footwear (if you aren’t sure what that means, just ask). It’s never a bad idea to bring sunscreen, bottled water, and sunglasses, rain or shine. This is a kid-friendly experience, so feel free to bring the whole family along and pack any snacks or extra clothing they need.

Capt. Astro runs trips out of Boca Grande. These waters are known for different species of Sharks and he will show you how to catch them from the beach. With great knowledge of the area, he has a trick or two up his sleeve, and the only way to learn is to join him out on the water!
