Fishing With The Fox Charters sails the beautiful waters of Southwest Florida. They 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.

You will be welcomed aboard a brand-new 21-foot Skeeter bay boat, powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. This vessel can comfortably take up to four anglers. It is equipped with navigational electronics, such as a GPS and a fish finder, as well as with a wireless motor, an anchoring system, a live bait tank, and an ice-box for refreshments. The Captain has rigged his boat with rods, that were specifically designed for the local inshore species.

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.
