Fischer Charters - Fort Myers

(22) In high demand!
Punta Rassa Boat Ramp
Fort Myers FL, United States

Look no further than Fischer Charters for an experienced local guide who can show you the very best of what Southwest Florida has to offer to fishing fanatics. Captain Zach Fischer and his brothers grew up living and fishing in Sanibel and Captiva, and they have learned their craft from the best there is: their father was the head guide out of South Sea Plantation for 40 years.

Your fishing charter will be spent aboard a sturdy Fitz center console that was rejuvenated in 2016 to keep it in the best working order. Featuring top of the range electronics by Garmin, a Minn Kota iPilot trolling motor, and a T-Top for shade, this boat is ready and raring to tackle the local flats, bays, and passes.

While Captain Zach lives and breathes fishing, he is also keen to show you around the area he grew up in. He can take you and your group on a relaxing cruise to the local car-free islands and show you around the local sights and natural wonders.

If fishing is more your thing, then you have also come to the right place. Fischer Charters will help you sight cast to Redfish and Tarpon, fish the flats for Snook and Trout, troll slowly for Kingfish, or even battle a Silver King. Just let them know what you want to do and they will provide the equipment and techniques you need to have an unforgettable experience.

As charters get booked up quickly, make sure to book well in advance to secure your chosen date (especially in Tarpon season!). Remember, it is often more enjoyable to fish on weekdays when there are fewer boats on the water.

About the Captain

Zach Fischer
Fort Myers, 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

I took my son-in-law and 3 grandsons fishing and we all had a great time.  Zack was very attentive and very helpful at making sure we all had a great time.  I would recommend Captain Zack and his fishing charters to anyone.

Thanks Zack -  Mike Justice, Mark, Joe, Gabe and Aiden.
