With prevailing southwest winds off the Gulf and strong tidal currents, the area surround the harbor were thousands of years in the making. It has become nature’s maze of mangrove islands, oyster bars, and deep channels bordered by miles of fertile grass flats. These surrounding areas are called “sounds”, and support some of the best inshore and near shore game fishing in the state. With 850 miles of shoreline, 84% of which is state preserve lands and habitat, and 28 miles of sandy shoreline beaches, Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, Trout, and countless other species make Charlotte Harbor and its surrounding areas their home year round.

Common Fish & Wildlife
Charlotte Harbor, Boca Grande & Lemon Bay combine to form Florida’s second largest natural harbor estuary. This estuary was formed by the blending of saltwater through Boca Grande Pass and the Gulf of Mexico with freshwater from the Peace and Myakka Rivers. This combination creates an ecosystem like no other in the state.
What Our Visitors Are Saying
"Thank you Captain Mike for our unforgettable and very enjoyable fishing trip. We really appreciated your willingness to accommodate our last minute request for a charter. Your knowledge of the area, your familiarity of the habit of the fish, your experience and techniques that you passed on to us and your hospitality where top notch. We had such a great dinner of redfish that night. We are looking forward to seeing you again and wish you much success." -The Bergers
"Thank you for the two great days of fishing. The many snapper and catching all the big reds we could handle. A wide variety of other keeper fish kept it interesting. The inshore slam was a real treat! Your experience and knowledge of the area pays off again. Love the fishing. Love the area." -Denise
"Capt. Mike is great. He asked exactly what we wanted to do and exceeded our expectations! Would highly recommend. There were 4 of us and we were constantly pulling in fish in the flats. My husband caught the biggest Red of this season @ 39 1/2 inches. We had a blast. Will definitely book again!" -Lynn
