Spangler Adventures - Cape Coral

Spangler Adventures operates around the Cape Coral area, combining local experience and strong customer focus to provide tailored fishing adventures for anything from families fun to hardcore sportfishing. Captain Alan welcomes you aboard his modern, spacious boat for the ultimate Florida inshore experience.

You will be fishing aboard a 23’ Carolina Yachts center console, built in 2018 and powered up to a speedy 30 knots by her 200 HP Yamaha outboard. The vessel is perfect for family groups because of her high sides and spacious design and also makes for a solid fishing platform for even the most active of anglers.

The boat is equipped with the latest Garmin electronics, which combine with her brand new Minn Kota trolling motor to let you dominate these shallow waters. She has a huge livewell full of fresh live bait to tempt the fish in, and quality tackle for when they bite.

Captain Alan invests in high-end, locally-made rods and reels from Eupro and Florida Fishing Products to give you the highest success rate possible. You will normally be live baiting, but if you prefer to throw lures just let Captain Alan know and he will bring a range of quality products to get even the fussiest fish interested.

All trips come with water, ice, and a cleaning and filleting service for all your catch. Just bring along any food and drinks you want for your trip, and don’t forget your camera, because this is a day you will want to look back on for many years to come.

My passion for fishing began when I was a child. I played baseball throughout the week and always looked forward to fishing on the weekends with my dad. As I got older my love for fishing grew. My first job was working at a local bait and tackle shop. I then saved up enough money for my first boat in high school. I started guiding family and friends to catch fish and I knew from that point I wanted to pursue my own business as a charter captain. I took classes to earn my master captain's license. Since then I have been very fortunate with my business. Every day I look forward to sharing my passion with my customers and in the process we create memories that last a lifetime.
