If anyone can make a fish getter out of you, it’s Fish Getter Charters! Join Capt. Lance for a personalized fishing experience in Cape Coral, Florida.  Choose from a variety of family friendly outings, from inshore and nearshore fishing to dolphin watching and local sightseeing.

Make yourself comfortable aboard a 21’ Tide Water center console, powered by a 150 HP Yamaha engine. With a maximum cruising speed of 35 knots, this craft will have you fishing inshore and nearshore in no time. She comes equipped with GPS, a fishfinder, and an ice box to store your catch. Capt. Lance provides live bait, lures, 7’ spinning rods and open face spin cast reels.

No matter your skill level and what experience you hope to have on the water, Capt. Lance can provide your ideal Florida fishing experience. He will pick you up from local accommodations or bring the boat to you at your selected dock site. Capt. Lance is a reputable fisherman with more than 40 years of experience fishing these waters. He loves putting people on fish and does his best to cater to everyone on board.

Up to four anglers can fish in comfort, targeting a variety of fish inshore and nearshore. Children of all ages are welcome, and will especially enjoy popping for Speckled Trout and Sheepshead. Anglers looking for more of a challenge might prefer hunting down Redfish and Snook.

If an evening cruise is more your speed, ask Capt. Lance to take you dolphin watching and sightseeing. Drift down the river and canals, or catch a lift to a waterside restaurant. Capt. Lance can also take you out to Sanibel Island for shelling and any other activities you enjoy on the shore. Water is served on board, and you are welcome to bring your own alcohol (no glass containers).

Fish Getter Charters provides a fishing license and all the gear you need. Book today and experience Florida fishing for everyone!
