Hooked On Charters - Bokeelia

Waterfront Drive
Bokeelia FL, United States

Hooked On Charters offers light tackle sport fishing trips for Boca Grande Tarpon and many other flats and backcountry species out of Bokeelia, Florida. If you want to chase the “Silver King”, target Redfish, land a nice Snook, or even fish for Sharks - Captain Scott can accommodate any of your wishes.

Scott will take you out on his 24-foot Proline boat, which comes powered by a 200 HP Yamaha engine. This clean, spacious vessel was upgraded in 2015 and is ideal for the shallow and backcountry waters. Perfect for accommodating up to four anglers, the boat features a stable platform and is rigged with modern Lowrance navigational electronics, an ice-box for the catch and the refreshments, and a 60-gallon livewell with white bait, crabs, and pinfish.

If you are a big fan of Boca Grande Tarpon and can’t wait to take it off your angler’s bucket list, the best time to do it will be from May till July. The “Silver King” is Captain Scott’s speciality and he has tailored a few packages to suit your needs.

Backcountry and flats fishing are other options for a fun day out. Target Snook, Redfish, and Trout, along with Flounder, Sharks, Grouper, and Snapper. If you are a fly-fishing enthusiast, Captain Scott will provide you with a quality equipment. The trips are six, eight, and twelve hours on the water, depending on your personal preferences.

A fishing trip with Captain Scott comes inclusive with all you need to make a great catch possible. You will be provided with rods, reels, tackle, bait, lures, and licenses. The captain will also offer bottled water, so feel free to bring your own food and drinks along with non-spray sunscreen, appropriate clothes, and a camera. If you decide to keep the catch, it will be cleaned and filleted for you at the end of the trip.

    This trip is on most anglers bucket list, I've had clients travel thousands of miles to catch what we call the "Silver King". This huge a majestic fish can weigh up to 200+ pounds and jump upwards of 8 feet out of the water. If you want to experience a trip of a lifetime look no further. A typical tarpon season runs from about April to October but the best time in the Boca Grande area is MAY- July.

I am a third generation Floridian who has grown up fishing the Charlotte Harbor, Boca Grande, Pine Island area. I have lived in Punta Gorda since a very young age and have always had a passion for fishing. I've studied the fish who call Charlotte Harbor their home (Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Sharks). I have spent countless hours on the water learning their behavior to become the best fisherman I can be.
