What are Englewood Fishing Charters known for?

On all of our Englewood fishing charters & Palm Island fishing charters we will be fishing the grass flats, sand holes, deep troughs & sand bars that Charlotte Harbor is known for. The grass flats are a very delicate marine habitat that are a home to many species of fish as well as a home to many different types of bait that these fish feed upon. Sand holes & sand bars are scattered throughout these grass flats and provide all target species an ambush point as they hunt for food. Troughs of deep water flow between these flats & provide a place of travel & safety for many species of fish.

What other species will we catch on our Englewood Fishing Charter?

Snook, trout & redfish are the most popular and plentiful fish that we target. They are the gamefish of our area and Captain Hutch guarantees gamefish on every charter or your money back! Other species that can be caught - mackerel, pompano, jack, ladyfish, cobia, snapper, flounder & black drum

All of these species are targeted with great confidence throughout the entire year. They provide fun for all ages and skill levels.

Bait & Tackle

Light spinning tackle with artificial , live, or cut bait.

Englewood fishing charters require tackle that not only helps you hook the fish but also help you to successfully land your catch. Quantum reels matched with custom Sewell rods are up to the task and are the best in the industry. They are spooled with 10-20lb Powere Pro braid & Seaguar flourocarbon leader to make the the ultimate inshore light tackle rigs.

**Remember that communication is the key to a successful fishing trip. Make sure that Captain Hutch knows your expectations so that he can make sure that those become a reality. Please remember that the availablity of species is dependent on many different factors throughout the year and that the most fish will be caught on your trip if we target the species that is biting at that time.
