Fishing in Englewood

Located between Sarasota and Fort Myers, Englewood, FL is known for its untouched beaches, golf courses, and rich wildlife. However, Englewood’s fishing charters might just be the biggest attraction, bringing numerous tourists to the area every year. Founded as a fishing village in the 19th century, this town surely lives up to its history and honors its roots.

Inshore fishing on a half day trip will yield some truly impressive results! From massive Snook and feisty Redfish to hiding Trout – the variety of options available won’t disappoint. If you’re looking to reel in a trophy Silver King, a specialized trip can take you to Boca Grande – the “Tarpon Capital of the World.” Otherwise, you can visit the flats and mangroves for Cobia, Tripletail, King and Spanish Mackerel, Flounder, and Permit.

If you have some more time, cruise the deep offshore waters in search of some prized fish of the area. You’ll come face-to-gills with Red and Mangrove Snapper, Grouper, Barracuda, Amberjack, Mackerel, and even Tuna. Geared more towards experienced anglers, a full day offshore trip is an action-packed adventure you don’t want to miss.
