When you choose B.G. Charters, you are guaranteed to have a good time!  Captain Bryce Greene is eager to share his wealth of fishing knowledge with every customer, from the experienced angler wanting to fish a new location to the novice casting lines for the first time. Join him in Placida, Florida for unbeatable inshore fishing and a catch to remember.

You will fish aboard a brand new 23’ Dorado powered by a 200 HP Suzuki engine. With a maximum cruising speed of 48 knots, this craft ensures that you will spend more time fishing and less time getting to the fishing grounds. She comes equipped with everything you need, from advanced fishing technology to top of the line gear. A wireless trolling motor allows you to manoeuvre through shallow waters and currents with ease, while a fighting chair will help you reel in the hardest fighting fish. Capt. Bryce will have the live bait well fully stocked when you arrive.

A lifelong fisherman and graduate of University of Central Florida, Capt. Bryce knows these waters well. His goal is to provide a memorable experience, whether you choose to join him for a full day of fishing or just a few hours. No matter your skill level, he will help you target some of Florida’s most prestigious species inshore and nearshore.

You can join Capt. Bryce on the flats for Redfish, Snook, and Speckled Trout. If you had a bigger challenge in mind, you can try fishing for Goliath Grouper—a hard-fighting behemoth that is guaranteed to provide some drag screaming action. On the other hand, venturing just a little father from shore gives you a chance to fish for Tripletail, one of the tastiest fish in Florida.

B.G. Charters provides a fishing license and all the gear you need, featuring G. Loomis rods and Shimano reels. Depending on the species, you may keep your catch and Capt. Bryce will clean and fillet it for you.

Come aboard today for an unforgettable experience!

I grew up fishing the waters of Boca Grande, targeting a wide variety of species. This passion led me to become a fishing guide in my home waters after graduating from the University of Central Florida. My goal as a fishing guide is to create a memorable experience on the water for my clients, provide useful knowledge, and catch fish that will be remembered for a life time! Depending on the season, my favorite species to target are Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, Tripletail, and Goliath Grouper.
