Boca Grande Causeway
Placida FL, United States

Anchors Away Charters has what it takes to get you on fish in Placida, Florida. Captain Jeff grew up locally and has been fishing the waters of Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor all his life. He knows these waters like the back of his hand and specializes in providing fun days of fishing that lead to lifelong memories. If you are looking for a day on the water you will remember for years to come, look no further.

What makes Anchors Away Charters special is that Captain Jeff has two boats to fish from, meaning he will always be able to show you the best that the local area has to offer, whatever the conditions. So whether you are scanning the surrounding waters from the tower of his 24 ft Skeeter SX240 or navigating the intricate backwaters on his 18 ft Shallow Sport tunnel boat, you will have the edge over the majority of the other boats in the area. Both boats are fully equipped with top of the range fish finding electronics, Power Pole shallow anchoring systems, and top quality Shimano fishing tackle.

Thanks to this flexibility, Captain Jeff can take you on a whole range of trips. Target the world famous Boca Grande Tarpon, hunt for huge toothy predators, get in the water with an enormous Goliath Grouper, stalk the backcountry in search of Redfish, Snook, or Trout, or head off to the nearshore reefs to catch some delicious table fare… the choice is yours. Captain Jeff provides plenty of live bait and artificial lures to get you on the fish you have always wanted to catch.

Although Anchors Away Charters strongly supports catch and release to keep the local ecosystem flourishing, Captain Jeff is willing to clean your catch if you prefer. He welcomes anglers of all experience levels aboard his boats, and kids are especially welcome. Some of Captain Jeff’s fondest memories are fishing with his children - let him help you make memories with your kids, too.
