Talk to your captains and find out what fish you could keep an ear and which fish you cannot.
Half-Day Trip

We fished with Captain Terry Heller of Fish-On Sport Fishing with his homebase right in Port Charlotte and had a great day of fish-catching, laughing, learning and fun adventure. Because of the weather and wind, we left the dock at Placida equipped to fish the inland waters or run out into the gulf. With 3-5 ft waves, the 24 ft boat handled the gulf chop with ease and we made it out to 8 or 9 miles offshore, stopping at several key secret spots that Captain Terry had in his GPS. Drop-offs and wrecks, hard bottoms, sand. He explained why too. We caught fish at every stop! Heart throbbing bites, drag-screaming runs. We landed about 60 fish in our 3-hour lines-in-the-water stint from 1230-330 in the afternoon, catching 6 different species of fish including gag grouper, red grouper, triggerfish, lane snapper, key west grunts, tom-toms. We lost a lot too! We left with a nice bag of white fillets, all cleaned by Captain Terry and ready for the kitchen pan. We learned about the gear, rods, reels, lines, weights, leaders, hooks and differences between them all, and use of baits and lures. These included squid, cut bait, shrimp, frozen minnows and other secret stuff he had. Incredible trip. Great value, great fun. We highly recommend Captain Terry Heller.
Fish-on! For sure!

If you are used to fresh water fishing use a charter guide to teach you. Salt water fishing is a totally different game than fresh water.
