Orvis-endorsed guide, captain Roger fishes Charlotte Harbor from Port Charlotte to Matlacha, Florida, including the bays to the west, Boca Grande, Myakka and Peace River Deltas. Miles of mangrove shorelines border acres of skinny flats, bars, and coves that create a premier destination for the most passionate fly and light tackle anglers. With Captain Roger, you'll enjoy sight-casting in a foot of water or entice ferocious strikes off the surface. Select a day on our super skinny Hewes poling skiff, the best selection for furtive fish hunting. Go solo or bring a witness, but 2 is our limit for the skiff. She's a great choice for light tackle anglers, or a fly/light tackle combo trip! Top-brand rods, reels, and all required tackle will be provided, as well as fishing licenses for any resident or visitor. Guests are welcome to bring a favorite fishing outfit. Complimentary ice and bottled water are also on board. Join in the game of stealth for a memorable day out on these bucolic waters! Read More

Captain Roger provided my brothers and I a great experience on the Long Island Sound. We caught a variety of fish and were very happy with the charter fishing! We would definitely do it again. Thanks Captain Roger!

Great day, knowledgeable captain, kept us moving when things slowed, kept us on the fish. Caught a lot of stripers, fluke, porgy, and I seemed to attract sea robins. Lots of fun.
