Fisch Charters – Pine Island

Fisch Charters offer a fantastic selection of trips out of the scenic Pine Island fishing inshore, nearshore or deep into the backcountry targeting a wide range of great trophy and table fish such as Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Grouper, Snapper, and Sheepshead.

You will be fishing aboard a 23’ Barnhill flats boat, a sturdy and reliable craft newly restored in 2015, and powered by a quiet 4- stroke 150HP Yahama engine. She comes equipped with GPS and fishfinder to get you on the best spots out there, an anchor system to keep you steady while you fish, and everything you will need for the fishing itself, including a choice of live bait or lures.

Captain Alex Fischer understands that variety is the spice of life, and so offers a range of different trip options and a choice of tackle to go with them. A morning inshore landing huge bull Reds and sneaky Snook? An afternoon out hauling in some great Cobia or Kingfish? How about a full day out on the water, hitting the deeper waters| for Goliath Grouper or going way into the backcountry and around the flats to land some huge Tarpon and tasty Trout? Whatever you’re after, you’ll find it here!

All Fisch Charters trips come with fishing licenses for all on board, and a cleaning and filleting service for anything you want to take home. Take advantage of this fantastic opportunity and discover some of the world’s greatest fishing grounds.
