Hoodwink Fishing Charters

13771 Waterfront Drive
Bokeelia FL, United States

Hoodwink Fishing Charters specializes in providing fishing trips in beautiful Southwest Florida. With a boat that is ready to carry up to six passengers, they cater to anglers with all experience levels and look forward to showing you the amazing fishing the local area has to offer.

The boat they run is a classic 24’ Morgan with the top of the line electronics and a 250 HP Yamaha engine. It is set up for fishing the inshore waters in comfort and style. The boat’s shallow draft and high bow provide a comfortable, stable platform, which is perfect for the shallow water of Pine Island Sound.

All the equipment you need for an enjoyable day on the water is provided; just make sure you bring suitable clothing for the weather conditions and any snacks and drinks you might like throughout the trip.

Hoodwink Fishing Charters will take you targeting Redfish, Trout, Snapper, Grouper, Spanish Mackerel, Sharks, and many other species. Depending on the targeted species, you will be able to try your hand at light tackle fishing, drift fishing, trolling, bottom fishing, and spinning.

For those who don’t feel like fishing but still want to go out on the water, the captain offers a special 4-hour shelling package.
