Flats Fishing
Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor are not only well-known for there massive spring migration of tarpon, but also for year-round inshore fishing for snook, jack crevelle, redfish, and trout. Baits such as greenback sardines (white bait), threadfin herring, shrimp and ladyfish (used cut) are often the most sought out baits.

Some of the "old salts" refer to Charlotte Harbor as the “live bait Mecca”. If live bait is not your choice, a wide variety of artificial lures will be onboard. Soft baits include: Gulp shrimp, and shads along with numerous amounts of Exudes soft plastics. Other artificial baits include: Sebile's, Johnson Spoons, Mirror Lures, and Yo-Zuri.

Feel free to bring your own lures if you have a preference.

Please view the following website to learn about the regulations of our local targeted species if you plan on keeping your catch. However, I do encourage the conservation of our aquatic species.
