Captain Dewitt brings well over half a century of fishing experience and almost 35 years of local guiding knowledge to every trip. He is one of the most seasoned guides in the state, and the perfect man to get you on that fish of your dreams.

Capt. Dewitt only runs one trip per day, so there’s no rush back to the dock and no tight schedule to keep. Start your charter at a time that suits you and head out on a fully-customizable trip. You will be fishing the local shallows and inshore areas for a selection of species including Redfish, Trout, Flounder, Sheepshead, Snook, Snapper, and more.

If want to hit your limits, Capt. Dewitt will make sure it happens. Looking for that one trophy fish or trying to beat your personal best? He will change his tactics to put you on inshore brutes bigger than anything you’ve seen before!

During your trip, you will have the choice to drift, bottom fish, jig, pop, and live bait fish. You’re also more than welcome to bring your fly fishing gear along. All trips come with quality Shimano equipment, as well as plenty of bait which is prepared ahead of time to make sure you don’t waste yours!

So whether you want a morning of productive fishing for food with the kids or are looking to spend the whole day targeting a specific species, Custom Sport Angler Charters will build the perfect trip for you.

Please note that hard liquor is not allowed on the boat, but beer is okay.
