Paradise Fishing Charters

Paradise Fishing Charters invites you down to Englewood to explore what that part of Florida has to offer. Whether you’re after a ‘bucket list’ trip or want to plan your next family vacation, a honeymoon, or just a party, look no further.

Get your hands on the ‘Silver King’ Tarpon and the monster Sharks. Try some trolling and bottom fishing to get the taste of the deep sea. The local waters are home to such a large variety of species that it can be somewhat hard to choose what to go for first. Let the crew put you on the best fish around!

Target anything from Mangrove Snapper to Blacktip Shark, Hogfish, Yellowtail Snapper, Seabream, Gag Grouper, Amberjack, Tuna, Barracuda, Red Grouper, Cobia, King Mackerel, an even the elusive Goliath Grouper. The list just keeps going!

Captain Steve has a quarter of a century worth of experience. He will put his talent to work for you and guarantees some fantastic catches. If for some reason you don’t catch fish, next trip is for free.

You will be exploring the aquatic opportunities in the deep Gulf of Mexico aboard a 30’ Express Cruiser. The boat was uphauled in 2017 and provides plenty of fishing space for up to 6 anglers. There is a couple of 300 HP Crusader engines and a full range of navigational electronics, fish-finding equipment, and professional accessories.

The trips are all-inclusive. You will only need to bring something to drink.
