Saltwater Spoiled Fishing–Englewood

Join Saltwater Spoiled Fishing Charters for a fun and exciting fishing trip in areas like Lemon Bay, Gasparilla Sound, Boca Grande, and the Gulf of Mexico. Captain Ron Jones has been an avid fisherman his whole life and will provide a unique experience for veterans and novices alike.

You will be fishing aboard a 25’ Carolina Skiff center console boat that is powered by a 150 HP Suzuki engine. Apart from all the standard safety and navigation equipment, the boat has a livewell for bait as well as a wireless trolling motor, which is a great help with easily spooked fish.

Southwest Florida has great fishing spots, and Captain Ron will show you what can be found in these inshore and nearshore waters in and around the Gulf of Mexico. A typical trip will have you fishing for Redfish, various Grouper, Snapper, Trout, Snook, Amberjack and more. Sharks can also be targeted on request.

Rods, reels, and terminal tackle are included in the price of the trip, and Captain Ron will clean and fillet anything you catch after the trip for your convenience. Water is also provided, but you are free to bring along any other drinks or snacks you might want to have. A pair of polarized sunglasses is highly recommended for the best experience.

I have been fishing since I was a little guy. I have fished all over the Midwest and part of Canada. When I moved to Florida with my wife and children, I couldn't wait to get back to fishing. Once I caught my first big saltwater fish I was hooked, truly spoiled for saltwater fishing. I love taking people out for a good time of fishing or just swimming on the sand flats or beaches and some dolphin viewing. I love to share in that fish of a lifetime experience with people.
