Inshore Fishing

 Inshore fishing off the west coast of Florida is a bit different than inshore fishing of the east coast of Florida.   Off the west coast we have lots of “skinny” water that is home to Red Fish, Snook and Tarpon.   Instead of fishing deeper waters we are fishing waters that can you can only get to on boats designed for shallow waters.

What We Catch

Red Fish

Red Fish are available year round and can be found in the inshore waters on the Wast Coast of Florida.  These fish are a lot of fun to catch as they tend to be agressive and put up a great fight when hooked.


Snook should be on every fishermans bucket list.   Typically we stalk Snook in the Skinny waters.   They can be a bit timid so everything needs to be perfect  to have your best chance at catching one


Tarpon are found in Florida waters year round however the  migratory fish are generally around from April through August.  Tens of thousand of these fish move into our waters at this time to feed and spawn.

We also catch Mangrove Snapper, Sheapshead, Speckled Trout, Black Drum, Goliath Grouper, Shark (black tip, bull, hammerhead, spinner)
