Flats Fish’r Charters - Fort Myers

15001 Punta Rassa Rd
Fort Myers FL, United States

Flats Fish’r Charters is operated by Captain Blake Matherly, who has 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, who might be looking for an adventure in the waters of Southwest Florida.

Captain Blake operates a 17’ flats boat, equipped with a GPS and Fishfinder, with a maximum capacity of 3 anglers. It also has a wireless trolling motor for that smooth and silent run. Other than fishing, his on-water services also include lunch cruises, manatee watching, shelling or just a pleasant day of sightseeing on the water.

There’s a lot of water to cover, so expect to fish the backcountry waters of Pine Island Sound, the islands of Sanibel, Captiva, as well as Fort Myers. Blake specializes in fly fishing as well as 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 aboard. Fly fishing enthusiasts will also be provided with an appropriate tackle. Live bait, lures, as well as cleaning and filleting of anything you 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 passengers.

About the Captain

Blake Matherly
Fort Myers, Florida, United States
Member since August 2014
Captain Blake got hooked on fishing with his dad as a young boy, and never looked back. With more than 30 years of experience behind him, he's become a real expert in the craft and is always willing to pass on the knowledge he's learned. Light tackle fishing in shallow waters is his specialty and favorite pastime, be it regular spinning or fly fishing.
