Indigenous Charters

Book your next trip with Indigenous Charters and fish the waters of southwest Florida with Capt. Tyler Carner. Capt. Tyler is a third generation southwest Florida native who has been fishing these waters for 20 years. Let his experience and local knowledge guide you to a great day on the water!

His charter boat is a custom 24’ Southern Cross bay boat powered by a 250 HP Yamaha engine. On board you will find the latest electronics, including Simrad GPS and fishfinder, a Minn Kota trolling motor, and a 10’ Power Pole anchor system.

You will be using the highest quality fishing equipment, with reels from Shimano spooled with Power Pro braided lines matched with Star Stellar Lite rods. Capt. Tyler only uses high-end rods and reels to give you the best chance of staying hooked up to that fish of a lifetime.

Pine Island Sound and the surrounding waters offer some of the finest sport fishing in the world. Whether fishing the mangroves for giant Snook and Redfish or off the beach chasing down the elusive Silver King, Capt. Tyler guarantees to put forth 100% of his efforts to ensure you have the most successful day of fishing possible. Having fresh live bait is key to catching these big game fish. Capt. Tyler will be awake before the sun is up to catch the freshest live bait possible for your custom fishing charter.

Indigenous Charters provides a fishing license and pickup service from waterfront facilities. You may keep your catch and Capt. Tyler will clean and fillet it for you.

Join him on the beautiful waters of southwest Florida for a day of fun and adventure!
