Have you ever had the chance to explore the fishing abundance this area has to offer, Calusa Tales Charters has got your back. There is so much to see and fish in this area, and Captain James Bryan will know just where to take you to have a successful trip.
Your guide has a freshly restored 19’ flats boat with a 115 HP Mercury engine and room to take up to 3 fishermen to the most productive fish hideouts. This vessel is designed for stalking prey in the shallow waters – around mangrove shorelines, in the backcountry, and grass flats.
For all those moments when you need to be extra quiet, you’ve got a wireless trolling motor at your disposal. Capt. James also has the top-notch navigational equipment to get you to the fish quickly.
In these plentiful waters, you will find plenty of inshore royalty to target. If you’re looking to land Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Cobia, Spotted Seatrout, Redfish, and much more, then hold on to your rod, because you will find them. Even the Silver King could make an appearance, depending on the time of year.
The captain will provide top range St. Croix equipment, as well as live bait for your trip, and it’s up to you to use it well and have fun doing it. You will have bottled water on board, and if you’d like to bring your snacks and lunch, you’re welcome to do so. But don’t fill up on those snacks, because Capt. James will clean and fillet your catch for you to take home and feast.
Calusa Tales Charters is always glad to have young fishermen aboard – your guide will share some of his best tricks and tips with the little ones. When it comes to Florida inshore fishing, you can always find more amazing spots to cast your line, so head out and get fishing!
