FlatsFish’r Charters is operated by Captain Blake Matherly, a USCG Master Captain with over 30 years of fishing experience in the waters of Fort Myers and the surrounding areas. Blake discovered his passion for fishing as a young boy, and knew pretty quickly there was no other choice for him but to make a career out of it. Today, he caters to fishermen of all skill levels, looking for a light tackle adventure in the productive waters of Southwest Florida.

Captain Blake operates a 17 foot vessel, equipped with a GPS and Fishfinder, with a maximum capacity of 3 persons. Other than fishing, his on-water services also include lunch cruises, manatee watching, shelling or just a pleasant day of sight seeing on the water, and walking on a private beach.

Captain Blake and his guests mainly fish the backcountry waters of Pine Island Sound, the Islands of Sanibel, Captiva, as well as Fort Myers. Blake specializes in fly fishing and conventional spin fishing in shallow waters. Some of the game fish commonly targeted in the area include Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Sea Trout, and many more that are available virtually all year round.

Rods and reels for conventional spin fishing are available on board. Fly fishing enthusiasts will also be provided with an appropriate tackle. Live bait, lures, as well as cleaning and filleting of the daily catch are included in the price. Bottled water is provided, and you’re free to bring your own drinks. Finally, a Florida fishing license is covered by Captain Blake for all occupants of the vessel.
