Southwest Florida Guiding Services


Fishing Charters

Matlacha & Pine Island

Fish for tarpon, snook, redfish, trout and more onboard the Captain’s beautiful Dragonfly Grand Slam 17. At Blackbeard Fishing Co. we don’t only catch fish… we hunt fish.

Trips start based on the tides and weather patterns.

I do not watch the clock… if the fishing is good, we are staying until the fish are full (if that’s what you want). I will not rush you out of a good fishing spot. My goal is to meet your expectations, allow you to relax, and have fun.

In order to secure your day (s) a $100 deposit is required for each day booked. If you wish to cancel your charter please do so a week in advance. Cancellations within a week prior to the charter will not be subject to deposit refund.
