Light Tackle Sportfishing LLC is a full-time guide service that provides the utmost fishing experience in Southwest Florida. Operating from 2 locations throughout the year, they catch a whole variety of fish and will always be in the best place for the season. And, providing top of the line equipment and a wealth of knowledge about fishing in the local area, they specialize in unforgettable fishing experiences for anglers of all ages.

During your trip, you will be fishing aboard a new, state of the art Marauder Marine Avenger boat that was built in 2016. At 24 ft, this vessel has plenty of space for up to four people, and it is fitted out with a variety of electronics for finding fish. Importantly for those hot Florida days, there is also an ice box to keep your catch fresh and your drinks cold.

Climb aboard Captain Cory Palmer’s custom tower or settle into the custom chair on the bow and see why Light Tackle Sport Fishing is the charter to fish with. Regardless of the time of year, Captain Cory will show you something special that South Florida has to offer anglers of all ages - whether that is fighting a 200 lbs giant Tarpon or fly fishing in the shallow flats.

Everything you need for an enjoyable day on the water is provided by the captain. Just feel free to bring whichever snacks you would like for the day, as well as some sunscreen!
