Head out for an incredible day of fishing with Fish On Adventure Charters and get ready to fill up the icebox with some of Florida’s finest and most delicious fish! Captain Michael Werner runs a number of charters throughout the Fort Myers region, all specializing in nearshore and inshore fishing. His local knowledge of the aquatic habitats surrounding this area will have you on fish in no time!

You’ll head out into some of the most productive fishing grounds from Punta Rassa, conveniently located on the edge of San Carlos Bay. The boat ramp is about a 15-minute boat ride to Tarpon Bay and a 35-minute ride to Pine Island Sound.

The captain’s 23’ Sportsman bay boat is ideal for inshore and nearshore waters. Her shallow hull is perfect for planing skinny waters, but at the same time, she’s sturdy and built to withstand choppy conditions, making her great for deeper nearshore excursions. You can count on the boat’s top-notch navigational electronics to lead you to many of the hot spots where fish like to congregate, such as reefs and wrecks.

On inshore trips, you’ll be targeting Redfish, Speckled Trout, Snook, and Tarpon. On nearshore trips, you’ll head a little further out to battle against species such as Cobia and Kingfish. You’ll also have a chance to bottom fish for delicious Grouper and Snapper species above some of the many underwater structures along the coast.

Capt. Michael will provide your fishing license, as well as all necessary gear and tackle. He will also offer to clean and fillet your catch so you can go home and enjoy a scrumptious meal after a successful trip.

Fish on Adventure will have you coming back to Fort Myers again and again until you finally complete a “Backcountry Slam.” Who knows, you may even go down in the history books one day. Whether you’re a competitive angler or just someone that wants to get out on the water and relax while fishing, Capt. Michael’s got you covered! Fish on!
