Maynard Fishing Charters and Tours

3922 Pine Island Road
Cape Coral FL, United States

Maynard Fishing Charters runs half and full day trips fishing for a variety of inshore species out of Cape Coral FL, an area famous for its amazing fishing, beautiful scenery and warm, sunny weather.

The 22 ft Sterling flats boat you will be fishing aboard is the perfect vessel for stalking the skinny backwaters where the biggest Snook and Redfish lurk, while still being stable enough to head out a little further in search of Tripletail and Sheepshead. She has room aboard for 4 anglers, is powered by a 225HP Yahama engine, and comes equipped with GPS, fishfinder, and a trolling motor for sneaking up on the spookier fish, as well as a livewell full of fresh live bait, and everything you will need for your day’s fishing.

Maynard Fishing Charters specialises in live bait fishing for Snook, Redfish, and Trout, and Captain Nate has spent his entire life exploring the waters around Cape Coral in search of the best fishing spots. Maynard Charters offers a choice of light and heavy tackle, and does also offer lures if that is what you prefer. If you are visiting Pine Island, Matlacha, Sanibel, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, or any other surrounding areas Captain Nate can meet you at your dock or you can arrange to meet somewhere in between.

All Maynard charters come with bait, licenses, and a cleaning and filleting service for anything you want to take away at the end of the day - just remember to bring your cooler because you’re going to be loading up with fish!

This was a complete waste of $400.After 4 and1/2 hrs the 4 of us did not catch anything but a sunburn.Captain Kate told us we would catch plenty of fish. After returning to the dock the man selling shrimp said he caught a 20 lb fish off the dock.What a joke.
