We’ll attempt to answer some of the most common questions below, but if you have more specific questions or need other answers, please feel free to submit your question by contacting us here.

We look forward to hearing from you!

Do I Need A Fishing License?
No our Charter Captains are licensed for Charter Fishing and as long as you're with them you will not need a Florida Saltwater Fishing License.
I've heard "in-shore" and "off-shore", what's the difference?
Inshore refers to fishing shallow and protected waters of the intercoastal waterway. The most common fish caught are Snook, Trout, Redfish and Tarpon. Offshore, also called 'deep-sea fishing,' involves heading out into deeper waters of the Atlantic Ocean, anywhere past 10-50 miles in this area. The fish generally targeted are Grouper, Snapper, Amberjacks, and King Mackerel, but that is just a short list of what is out there. When fishing offshore, it is fairly common to hook something that you have to wait to get up to the boat to determine what it is! Because of the fuel costs and typically the need for a more seaworthy boat, offshore charters run 50% higher than inshore.
Where Do We Meet Our Guide?
Your Guide can be contacted either at the Fishing Charters Inc. offices toll free at (800) 244-9105 or on cell (239) 699-0946. Our Captians will inform you prior to your charter where and when to meet you according to your charter request.
Does Fishing Charters Inc. Guarantee we will catch Fish?
Actually nobody can guarantee that fish will cooperate all the time or be in abundance at any certain place or time. There are many factors to consider such as: Weather, conditions and fish moods which can limit or even shutdown any chartered tour from time-to-time. However.... we will promise you a great time on the water and a better opportunity with our experts to fulfill your fishing dream of catching a world class fish or delicious table-fare.
Are Food and Water Provided?
Unless requested differently, all charters will be provided with bottled water. Beer and alcohol are permitted on the vessel, however if someone becomes intoxicated the Captain will terminate the charter immediately without refund for safety reasons.
Are Fishing Charter Inc. Captains Catch & Release?
The growing attitude of Catch & Release is one of the most important & popular practices on the water today. Fishing Charter Inc. Captains practice this more often than not but we occasionally keep fish (within the legal limit) for the table. We are not a commercial holder of fishing license and do not believe that guiding and commercial fishing are a good mix.
How Many Anglers On Each Boat?
Inshore fishing requires specific boats for a specific task and our boats are taylored for that purpose. We generally take 1-8 people on an inshore trip and up to six on an offshore trip.

Again we will note.. the amount of anglers depend on the boat being used and what chartered tour has been requested.
