Cruise and/or fishing the local water around Southwest Florida. I travel from Boca Grande as far south as 10,000 Islands. I am on a trailer so I can pick launch locations that meet your needs.

My name is Captain Michael Rodgers and I’m a Florida native who has fished the waters of SW Florida my entire life. Based out of Fort Myers, Florida I travel all around getting clients on the fish. I bring my 19ft Center Console to you and we fish whatever you’re looking to catch. We can fish the backcountry of the Everglades, flats and mangrove coastlines of Boca Grande, or the Reefs and Wrecks around the Florida Keys. If there’s water, I’ll be there!

The boat is a well-maintained fishing machine that gets us to where we need to go with powerful 135 HP e-tec engine. All safety gear has been certified by the United States Coast Guard, and I’m CPR Trained in case of any emergencies. Onboard we have a livewell to keep the bait fresh, and a cooler to keep any drinks or snacks you may have for the trip.

We’ll go bottom fishing, drift fishing, spinning, or fishing with light tackle for a variety of species. Among my favorite to catch are Spotted Seatrout, Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Grouper, and Snapper. I can accommodate the trip of your dreams within reason (depends on the season and regulations of what’s available). If you’re not sure and just looking for a great day on the water, we can do that too! I am very flexible and am willing to work hard to get you exactly what you’re looking for your SW Florida adventure!

Fishing trips are either four hours or eight hours and can accommodate 3 guests. If you’re just looking for a fun day on the water I am able to take 5 guests. Fishing trips include everything you’ll need including gear, tackle, and licenses. Come fishing with Captain Michael on your next SW Florida Charter!

5 Hour Trip – Blind Pass Snook
Never fish in FL and want to show my son how it’s done. He moved down there away from the cold north and all the sunfish with night crawlers. Captain Mike showed us how to and what to look for in fishing the Gulf. We want to go out with him in the summer now to go after different fish. I use MIROD anytime I go.

5 Hour Trip – Blind Pass Snook
Trip was exactly what my grand boys wanted. Caught sharks and a sting ray which was a bonus since they hadn’t seen one before. Mike was great with the kids and we’re pleased with the experience. I understand he has only been doing trips a year or so but I’d recommend him - very knowledgable and personable.

Had a great day, caught many fish. Would recommend to anyone looking for a day on the water, with some “catching” on the side.
