Explore the beauful waters of Bokeelia, Florida with one of the best charters in the area – book a trip with Maxed Out Charters. They’re all about fishing fun for the whole family in shallow smooth waters of their back bays around the mangrove islands and grass flats.

Captain Billy Williams is the proud owner of Maxed Out Charters and his boat is a brand new 25’ Skeeter bay boat, 2021 model. Everything on board is top-notch and brand new, from a 300 HP Yamaha motor to marine electronics and safety equipment. The vessel also features an ice box, wireless trolling motor, and a livewell to keep your bait fresh and tasty.

The captain will take you and up to 5 other anglers after Trout, Snook, Redfish, and Snapper, just to name a few. He’ll show you all the hot spots and the most efficient techniques, including drifting and bottom fishing.

And what about the gear? You won’t have to worry about a thing, since all the tackle is covered by the charter, including lures and live bait. Fish filleting and cleaning is also complimentary and done by the first mate after the trip. You won’t have to think about fishing licenses either – Maxed Out Charters will take care of that, too. What else can you ask for a perfect day on the water?
