Fischer Charters - Sanibel

(26) Just booked!
Sanibel Boat Ramp, Bailey Roa…
Sanibel FL, United States

There are few charter services more in-tune with the waters of Southwest Florida than Fischer Charters. Captain Zach Fischer and his brothers have been living and fishing in this area all their lives, and they have been catching fish here ever since they could walk. With an expert charter fisherman as a father, they have managed to build up a wealth of knowledge that makes them stand out from the crowd.

Book a trip with the Fischers, and you can choose between chartering the boat for a relaxing cruise to the local shell-covered islands or going on a rod-bending fishing adventure. Fischer Charters will guide you to the Silver King or to the World Famous Cheese Burger in Paradise. It’s up to you!

You will be fishing aboard a recently restored Aquasport 222 center console that can take up to five people. The boat has recently been fitted with new safety equipment and fishing amenities, and has everything you need to stalk Redfish, troll for Kingfish, drift the passes for Snook, or practice any other inshore and nearshore fishing technique you would like to try.

As Southwest Florida is a very desirable fishing destination all year round, it is recommended that you book your trip with plenty of time to spare if you want to secure your favorite dates. Fischer Charters also suggest fishing during the week if you would like to experience the waters without so many other people around.

About the Captain

Zach Fischer
Sanibel, 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

Happy we were able to get the trip in and some extra time. Didn’t look promising with the bad weather rolling off the Gulf this morning.  Everyone did a great job landing some fish. Definitely enjoyed the time with your family. Look forward to taking you out in the future.

Overall outstanding time with Zach. He’s a local and when he tells you that he’ll put you on fish he means it. He consistently put us in position to catch the fish we were after. If there’s no action at one spot he moves on to another. He doesn’t waste your time sitting around hoping the action picks up its a let’s move and catch fish attitude which is great. My Girlfriend and I were totally satisfied with our half day fishing experience with Zach. Looking forward to another outing with Zach in near future.

Zach grew up fishing the waters around Sanibel and Captiva. His father guided on the same waters. He knew what he was doing and he put us on fish the whole time. Top notch equipment and very friendly as well!
