Naples fly fisherman like to drive north and fly fish the clear water in Charlotte Harbor. Naples offers a central location to access the Everglades National Park and then with a short drive north anglers enjoy Charlotte Harbor sight casting for redfish, snook, and tarpon in gin clear water.
For Palm Island Fly Fishing Charters and Trips, Capt. Austin can pick you up on Palm Island or we can meet in other locations throughout the estuary. Palm Island and Knight Island are located right in the middle of Lemon Bay and are surrounded by redfish, snook, and tarpon fly fishing beats.
For Matlacha Fly Fishing Charters and Trips, Capt. Austin usually launches on Boca Grande and makes the 25 minute Boat Ride to Matlacha Sound. Matlacha Sound has some of the most beautiful flats and creeks in Florida and he loves fishing that area. Matlacha snook, redfish and tarpon are worth the boat ride. If the wind makes the harbor too rough for crossing we will trailer to Matlacha Pass and launch at one of the local ramps.
For North Captiva Island and Sanibel Fly Fishing Charters we generally fish Pine Island Sound or clients hop on I 75 and head north and we meet at a boat ramp that I designate. During tarpon season it is very easy for me to make beach pick ups on these islands and go straight to the tarpon fishing. During winter months most of the snook move further up the Caloosahatchee River and therefore people will usually drive and meet me on one of the rivers in the harbor for some great fishing days.
