Boca Grande FL, United States

GoliathFishing invites you on a super exciting fishing adventure with Captain James Marko in Boca Grande, Florida. Whether you’re an experienced or first time angler, Captain Marko will not disappoint.

Back in 2000, Captain Marko went to the Keys on a fishing holiday and fell in love with the ocean. It was then he decided to run his own charters and has since dedicated his time to fishing and guiding customers to their dream fish in Florida.

Captain Marko will take you out aboard a 2017 23-foot Epic bay boat powered by a 175 HP Suzuki engine. The boat is fully equipped with safety and navigation gear including life jackets and a fishfinder. You will also find a livewell for the bait, an icebox for the catch, and a fighting chair for when you battle the huge fish.

Since Captain Marko is a member of the Okuma’s Pro Team, he ensures his guests always use top-of-the-line fishing equipment like Daiichi hooks and more. GoliathFishing has acquired a special activities license through Florida Fish & Wildlife which allows them to target the species in order facilitate and aid in research of Goliath Grouper.

Goliath Fishing can take you fishing in the world renowned waters of Boca Grande where you can fish for Goliath Grouper, Gag Grouper, and Red Grouper. Alternatively, you can fish for the local species including Snook, Tarpon, Spotted Seatrout, Snapper, and more. You will have all the fishing gear provided including a license and catch processing.

If you are looking for a memorable day filled with tight lines then book your trip today with Captain Marko and GoliathFishing.
