Fishing with the Fox

Fishing With The Fox Charters are based in Fort Myers, a world-famous fishing destination. Captain Fox will get you to the fishing grounds fast and will show you where the fish are biting best.

Fishing With The Fox is a full-time guide service in Southwest Florida. They have knowledge of fishing tactics from Texas to Florida. This wide range of experience makes it easy to put together your trip of a lifetime. As a military veteran, Captain Fox uses the same drive and dedication on every trip to ensure success for his guests.

The 21’ Skeeter bay boat is outfitted with all of the latest electronics and gear to streamline the fishing process. Less time getting there, more time fishing there. From the wireless GPS trolling motor with spot-lock technology, to twin PowerPole shallow water anchors, no expense was spared in designing the perfect fishing boat to accommodate up to 4 anglers. Whether you want to fish nearshore for Tarpon, Snapper, Grouper, or Sharks, or chase Redfish and Snook in less than 2 feet of water, Fishing With The Fox can create that trip of a lifetime.

Fishing with the Fox provides inshore and nearshore fishing experiences for all skill level anglers. Species include Snook, Redfish, Speckled Trout, Tarpon, Sharks, Jack Crevalle, King and Spanish Mackerel, and Snapper. Fishing with the Fox utilizes custom tackle designed for the inshore and nearshore species found in these waters. Along with top quality gear, Captain Fox will provide you with superior service to ensure your trip is one that you will remember for a lifetime.

Your trip will include rods, reels, tackle, fishing licenses, live bait, and lures. You will be provided with bottled water so you can feel free to bring your own snacks with you. The Captain will clean and fillet your fish once it caught so you will be able to take it home with you to eat later or just fill the freezer.
