Scales and Tails Charters

8700 Estero Blvd
Fort Myers Beach FL, United States

Captain Glen Brownlee owns Scales and Tails Charters, fishing the majestic Estero Bay and Pine Island Sound. His primary launch point tends to be Hickory Bait and Tackle, located at the Weeks Landing, however he’ll gladly launch where the fish are! - that’s how he insures your trip ends up with one or more abundant inshore game fish of Southwest Florida, such as Redfish, Snook, Tarpon, Cobia, Tripletail, Sea Troun and many more.

Regardless of if this is your first time fishing or you’re a veteran angler, everyone is sure to appreciate a day on the productive waters of SW Florida, armed with your light tackle and live bait (all provided by the Captain). No matter what your skill level is, Captain Brownlee is helpful, courteous and professional at all times. He’s committed to you catching fish and having a great day in Fort Myers Beach.

As a professional firefighter for 25 years, Capt. Glen learned that customer service is the key to a successful business. Today, he operates a 20’ vessel, equipped with conventional navigational electronics of a fishing boat, such as GPS and Fishfinder, as well as a cooler with ice. All fishing equipment is covered by Glen, and he’ll be happy to assist with cleaning and filleting your day’s catch after a successful trip.

A Florida fishing permit for all anglers fishing with Scales and Tails and Captain Glen are included in the price. 4, 6 and 8 hour trips are made available, with the departure time of 9AM for Half and 3/4 day trips, and 8AM for Full Day trips.

Captain Glenn is a great guide.  I have fished my whole life in FL so I have some knowledge…find a guide that is a local (u will catch fish), enjoys his job   (u will catch quality fish) and is a good person (u will catch lots of Snook, Reds, Trout, etc.  and enjoy the day)!  He is the total package!
