Sea Shift Charters

Catch the big ones in Southwest Florida with Sea Shift Charters. You will be in good hands with Captain Brian Lynch, who has been fishing the local waters for over forty years and has been providing inshore, nearshore, and backcountry fishing trips for more than half that time. Get ready for a memorable fishing experience!

You will be fishing aboard a 20 ft Lake and Bay boat that is fitted with a bimini top for shade on those hot summer days. The boat can accommodate up to three people and it has plenty of room to move around and fish. The boat is fitted with a trolling motor and anchoring system to give you excellent access to the shallow waters where your target fish feed, and it has a wide casting area at the front for sight fishing. On board, you will find seating, as well as an ice box stocked with cold water for you to enjoy throughout your trip.

Sea Shift Charters mainly fishes with live bait, which you will find waiting for you in the bait tank when you step onto the boat. That being said, Captain Bryan is also experienced in fishing with artificials and fly, and he is more than happy to cater to all types of angler on his fishing trips. Whichever technique you use, you will be targeting Redfish, Snook, Seatrout, and Tarpon - four of the most enjoyable and challenging fish to catch inshore.

Captain Bryan will supply all the gear and bait you will need for your trip, and he will also provide a cooler with beverages. He recommends you come equipped with a hat, some polarized sunglasses for sight fishing, sunscreen, and any food you would like to eat during the trip. Don’t forget a camera!
