Saltwater Spoiled Fishing - Placida

Saltwater Spoiled Fishing Charters takes you fishing out of Placida and Boca Grande. There is a variety of fish to catch here and you’ll have a lot of fun no matter how skilled you are. Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, King Mackerel, Snapper, Grouper, and the list goes on – join Capt. Ron and have a blast.

Capt. Ron has been an angler his whole life. He loves fishing Florida waters and will make sure you have a great day on the water. Over the years, he’s put numerous repeat customers on fish. Have a look at the photos of his fishing trips and you will see why so many anglers choose to fish with him.

You will be fishing from a 25’ Carolina Skiff center console powered by a 150 HP Suzuki 4-stroke engine. She can take up to 6 anglers. The boat is equipped with GPS and a fishfinder, has a live bait well, an ice box, and a trolling motor.

Trip rates cover rods, reels, tackle, live bait, lures, as well as a fishing license. You will find cold water onboard, but need to bring your own food and beverages. When packing for the trip, remember to bring sun block, a hat, sunglasses, and a camera.

There are multiple spots around here where you can get excellent fish. Stay inshore or scout around the flats to get big Snook or head to nearshore reefs and chase Snapper and Grouper. You can also enjoy the scenery and probably see some dolphins along the way.

Placida fishing trips with Ron are easily accessible from Naples. He can also accommodate anglers who want to fish out of Boca Grande. The captain runs trips out of Punta Gorda and Englewood as well.

Invite your friends and hop onboard. Captain Ron will work to turn your trip into a lasting memory!

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 dolpin viewing. I love to share in that fish of a lifetime experience with people.
