Fischer Charters - Captiva

5400 Plantation Road
Captiva FL, United States

Fischer Charters is a family company whose foundations are firmly grounded in the fishing charter business in Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Captain Zach Fischer was born and raised on Captiva Island, and he has been fishing the local waters all his life. His father was the head guide out of South Seas Plantation and spent 40 years guiding people under the Florida sun. Now, Captain Zach and his two brothers have followed in their father’s footsteps to share their own knowledge and passion with their guests.

Whether you want to fish or to explore the local beaches around Captiva, you will be comfortable on board the Fischers’ 22’ Aquasport center console. This recently refurbished boat features a whole range of up to date amenities and safety features, and it even has a bluetooth stereo system that will let you fish and cruise to a soundtrack of your choice. Top of the range fishing features are fitted on the boat, with Garmin electronics and an innovative Minn Kota iPilot trolling motor in place to get you to the very best fishing spots.

Captain Zach grew up totally immersed in the fishing charter world, and he was out catching bait for his father as soon as he could walk. This has given him a wealth of experience that is very hard to find. He and his brothers know how to catch fish in these waters! Join them to try your hand at sight fishing for Redfish, perusing the flats for Snook, Trout, Tarpon, and Shark, battling with a Tarpon in the Gulf and Boca Grande, trolling for Kingfish, and drifting for Snook and Redfish in the passes.

Due to the amazing weather and fabulous fishing year round, Fischer Charters’ calendar is always crowded. To ensure availability of the dates of your choice, booking at least two to three months in advance is recommended during the spring and summer months (not necessary). Book early for Tarpon charters as the season is short and these dates are the first to go. Remember, it’s often better to fish on weekdays to avoid the crowds.

About the Captain

Zach Fischer
Captiva, Florida, United States
Member since December 2016
I was born and raised on Captiva Island. Yes that’s right… an Island native. I’ve spent most of my entire life fishing off the waters of Captiva, Sanibel & Naples. My father was the head guide out of South Seas Plantation. He has recently retired after a historic career of over 40years (That’s a lot of time in the SW Florida sun). My older brother and I were helping him catch bait since the time we could stand. When we were younger we would spend our free time on his charters learning from the best of the best. This enabled both of us to outfish 90% of the guides on the water by the time we were 10 years old. When I was just 11 I received my first boat. Having this boat enabled both of us to venture out on our own to apply new techniques and find new fishing spots. My family and I take tremendous pride in the first hand knowledge we’ve established over a lifetime on the waters off SW Florida. My 2 brothers and I are now guiding the waters and sharing our passion with our gues
