Captain Coop's Charters

24th Avenue
Apalachicola FL, United States

Captain Coop’s Charters provides year-round inshore and nearshore fishing trips from Apalachicola, Florida. Captain Charles Cooper runs the whole operation and is more than happy to provide a trip tailored to your needs and wants. A passionate fisherman with more than two decades of experience under his belt, he loves fishing with both veterans and new anglers alike.

The boat you will be on is a 22’ Kinner center console that’s powered by a 150 Yamaha engine. Its size allows it to quickly traverse inshore and backcountry waters to have you on the fish in no time. All the necessary safety and navigation gear that’s necessary for a safe and productive day out on the water can be found aboard.

This part of Florida is great for fishing during the entire year, so you don’t need to worry too much about picking the right time to fish. Some of the species you can expect to see in these waters are Black Drum, Pompano, Redfish, Spanish Mackerel, and a variety of Sharks, including Nurse, Tiger, and Blacktip Sharks. Fans of fly fishing are more than welcome aboard but will need to bring their own gear.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of any given trip, along with the necessary fishing licenses. Captain Charles will clean your catch after the trip so you don’t have to bother with it later. Bring a pair of polarized sunglasses, and some drinks and snacks if you’re a fan, and you’re all set for a fishing adventure. Captain Charles also offers a discounted rate for military veterans and people with disabilities.
