Englewood, Florida, offers a variety of fishing options. The waters are teeming with fish with excellent flats, backcountry and Gulf fishing. Englewood is located just north of the famous Boca Grande Pass and Charlotte Harbor, so it is not far to get to these fishing grounds. When you go fishing with a professional Englewood Fishing Charter, you may go down south, or you may just stay in the Englewood area fishing inshore, nearshore and offshore because the fishing near the city is fantastic.
Englewood is located on Lemon Bay and very close to the Lemon Bay Aquatic Preserve. Near the Manasota Key, there is excellent inshore fishing for Redfish, Snook, Trout, Tarpon, Mangrove Snapper and even Sharks. You can encounter Cobia, Tripletail, King and Spanish Mackerel, Flounder, and Permit in the Bay. A half-hour should be a good amount of time to catch some, if not all, of these fish, but to maximize your catch, a full 8-hour charter is warranted. And for those that really want to battle with a giant “Silver King,” you can take a full day cruising to the Tarpon Capital of the World, Boca Grande and join the other anglers hoping to check off one of the checks on an angler’s bucket list.
If you want to avoid going inshore, the Gulf of Mexico is right off the coast. Here you can go nearshore in the wrecks and reefs for Tripletail, Kingfish, Cobia, Mackerel and Permit, along with bottom feeders like Grouper, Snapper and Sea Bass. This is a great charter for those that do not want to take a full day and fight the bigger waves well offshore. The captain of your Englewood Fishing Charter will know the area and where the fish are biting, so you can relax and wait for the fish to bite your hooks.
If you decide to go offshore, you are in for a treat. Here you can target the same bottom feeders as nearshore, but the size is much larger, resulting in more keepable catches. And going a little further, you can troll for trophies like Mahi Mahi, Wahoo, Tuna, Amberjack, Cobia and more. The possibilities on a full-day charter are endless. If you want to fight a giant of the Gulf like Marlin, then you will have to book an Englewood Fishing Charter for an extended day or overnight charter to go far offshore.
Englewood is a great starting point for world-class fishing. A half or full day exploring the inshore fishing grounds and Lemon Bay tailing large Redfish and Snook is perfect for families and those anglers looking for reel-screaming action. Half-day charters nearshore will excite you as you reel in fish after fish. Full-day charters offshore are guaranteed to be a fun day on the water. And if you want to get the exhilarating feeling of a Marlin on the line, an extended trip cannot be beaten. Englewood Fishing Charters can be picked up at a few of the marinas in town, and they are ready to take you out for a day you will never forget!
