SW Florida Fishing Charter


The rates for Action Flats Backcountry Charters are for up to 2 anglers.  There is an additional fee of $75 for a third angler.  There is nothing for you to bring except for drinks and lunch.  Here’s what’s included:


All bait, lures, and tackle

Fishing Licenses


Top-of-the-line equipment, including St. Croix Rods, Shimano & Daiwa Reels

Whenever possible, if bait is your fishing method of preference, I will try to catch bait prior to the trip.  This usually involves throwing the cast net, which is often an adventure in itself.  A variety of marine life species usually comes in with the intended bait and the sight of hundreds of flipping shad in a net is still a thrill to me!  Your welcome to take part in the adventure.


Because I am a fishing addict, we’ll fish hard and long to get your rod bent.  Often times my fisherman let me know when its time to come in!


Full Day               $400  (8-9 hours)

¾ Day                  $325  (6 hours)

Half Day              $275  (4 hours)


Action Flats Backcountry Charters accepts Visa and Master Card and cash is always welcome to pay the remainder of the balance after your deposit has been received. 


A deposit of ½ of your trip fee is required to reserve your date of choice.  Online deposits are acceptable when contacting me through email.  In either case, you will be issued a receipt for your deposit and additional information about the guide service and fishing in this area.


Several days prior to your trip I will contact you regarding trip departure times and where to meet.  Often times I can pick you up directly at your hotel or house. 


Refund and Rescheduling Policy:  Deposits are refundable within 30 days notice of your trip date.  Trips may be rescheduled at the discretion of  the Captain or due to weather or unsafe water conditions.  Capt. Chuck will try to work with you on any unique situations that might arise.


Tipping:  Many folks don’t realize that it is o.k. to tip the captain.  Although, it is certainly not required, your captain will work hard to make sure your having a good time and he puts a lot of pressure on himself to put you on fish.  Some days mother nature puts the whammy on things and nothing short of dynamite will put a fish in the boat and I must absorb the costs of the day due to my “No-Fish No-Pay” Guarantee.  You be the judge- I will work hard to teach you new fishing methods, take you into hard to reach locations, put you on fish and hopefully entertain you a bit…Trust me, it will be an adventure!  A general rule of thumb is 10-15%.  Tipping is not expected but always appreciated!
