If you’re looking for a place that can offer you a wide range of bountiful inshore and nearshore waters to fish, you’re looking for Placida, Florida. Barnhill Charters makes the fishing situation even better, as they’ll take anglers both new and experienced to the hottest fishing spots around!

Join Captain Warren Barnhill on board of his 24’ Pro-Line. She was built back in ‘76 but restored in ‘16 – a testament to the quality of her build. Her spacious design with a central console allows for up to 4 anglers to move around freely, chasing the best bite without bumping elbows. A T-top will keep you cool as you angle under the warm Floridian sun.

Capt. Warren will take you after a wide range of local species, where you can try out different fishing styles. You’ll go spinning and jigging for Redfish,  and whatever else will take the bite. He’ll take you after other gorgeous fish like Snook, Speckled Trout, Jack Crevalle, or the elusive Silver King. You’ll get the chance to also try bottom fishing, drifting, and trolling – just talk to Capt. Warren and he’ll recommend the fish and technique you should try.

The charter will provide you with all the necessary fishing equipment on this charter. The captain’s license covers customers as well.

So, come on down to the beautiful waters of Placida and cast off on a true fishing adventure with Captain Warren Barnhill – see just why this is one of the best inshore fishing places in Florida!
