Snapper – Trout – Redfish – Barracuda – Sharks – Mackerel

OFFSHORE FISHING

Offshore trips on Krewe Chief Charters are no more then 9 miles offshore using medium to heavy tackle targeting a wide variety of fish species using an assortment of baits. Fish seasons and regulations are always changing so the Capt. will inform you on any bag limits and harvest seasons while booking your trip. Many of the species found in these waters are:

Mangrove Snapper – Black Grouper – Scamp Grouper – Cobia – Sharks – Permit – King

TRADITIONAL TARPON FISHING, FLY FISHING AND CRUISES

Traditional Tarpon Fishing

This trip is in Boca Grande Pass and the surrounding harbor and beaches. The targeted species is Tarpon using traditional tackle and techniques unique to this area and style of fishing. Many other species are commonly caught offering a fun and well rounded fishing experience.

Cruises

Capt. Leighton offers a wide variety of cruising options including bayou cruises, sunset, trips to Cabbage Key and other barrier islands as well as South Seas Plantation in Captiva. He also does educational tours, such as the Eco tour and an Olde Fla Interactive tour: where you experience a day in the life as a commercial fisherman. It is an educational tour where you will learn about a wide range of wildlife and Fl history. Oyster and shelling trips are also a wonderful way to spend a relaxing afternoon.

Fly Fishing

Fly Fishing trips are offered just ask the Capt. for the details! In short, we have a skinny water craft just for our fly fishing excursions in the backcountry of Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor. Fly fishing is a personal favorite of Captain Leighton, and these trips reflect that passion. Contact Us today to get started on your epic SW Florida fly fishing trip!

Mindful on the Gulf.

We want your day to be unforgettable for all the right reasons!! Because of this there are just a few things to keep in mind for your day out on the water.

Please remember there are many variables that go into a successful day of fun fishing, the Capt has control of some but not all of these things. The goal is to have FUN!! And while Capt. Leighton will try his heart out to catch you that fish you always wanted, sometimes it is just not possible. Weather is another of those pesky variables that change often, it is the Capt.s first priority to keep everyone safe, so please respect his decisions. Payment is due at the completion of your charter, if Tarpon or Tournament fishing a gratuity for the deckhand is expected; more details on payment can be discussed while booking your charter. Please be on time for departure to ensure you can make the most of your time on the water, the Capt. only has so many hours he can stay on any one charter due to booking conflicts. Please wear non-marking shoes while on the vessel at all times. Bring rub in sunscreen only. Spray sunscreen can make the deck of the boat unsafe. Bring a camera to capture all your memories!! Be aware the Capt or crew of Krewe Chief charters will take pictures during your trip. 

By booking with us you understand that photos may be used on this website and Facebook as well as any promotional material property of Krewe Chief Charters; if you do not wish for your photo to be used that’s okay, we absolutely respect our clients!!

Alcohol on the boat is fine but restricted to beer and wine only! If at any point the Capt. deems behavior unsafe during the trip he will return to the nearest safe area and no refund will be given, just use good judgement anytime alcohol is involved. Mechanicals, sometimes things break it is rare but does occur; if this happens we will make every effort to reschedule your trip or may refer you to another skilled Capt. Rates are Subject to change. Most importantly Have FUN!!!
