Captain Griffin's Fishing Charters And Tours

Captain Griffin’s Fishing Charters stands out from the sea of boats in Fort Myers for a few good reasons. Capt. Griffin Lowry is a native of SW Florida and has enjoyed fishing here his whole life. His boat is well-maintained and fast, and he has a wide range of equipment onboard. In short, he has the skills, the gear, and the passion to get you on some incredible catches.

Spend your day fishing the nearshore waters or the backcountry. Fort Myers is famous for its endless back bays, bayous, flats, and mangroves. Explore just a fragment of these and you will find Redfish, Trout, Tarpon, Snook, and more. Head out further, and Kingfish, Tripletail, Sheepshead, and even Cobia join the cast of incredible sport and table fish.

Even if you don’t want to fish at all, you can still enjoy a great day on the water. Head out on an eco tour to learn about this magical part of the country. See dolphins, wild birds, and untouched wetlands with a local guide who is passionate about the area.

You will be fishing aboard a 22’ Pathfinder 2200 TE bay boat powered up to 60 knots by a 200 HP Yamaha V Max Sho engine. The vessel’s flat bottom and trolling motor let you chase tailing fish deep into the skinny waters, while her GPS and fishfinder make it just as easy to stay on top of nearshore species.

Once you find your fish, you will have plenty of options of how to catch it. Capt. Griffin stocks both light and heavy tackle, allowing you to take on any fish with confidence. You will also have the chance to try out techniques like live baiting, spinning, and bottom fishing.

Anglers of all ages are welcome aboard, and Capt. Griffin is always happy to show children and beginners how to reel in their first fish. So whether you’re a seasoned angler looking for a SIlver King worthy of the throne, or a family of four out for fun and a few fish, you will find the perfect trip with Captain Griffin’s Fishing Charters.
