Caloosahatchee Cowboy Charters caters to a wide variety of anglers beginners through experts. I can accommodate large parties up to 6 people aboard my brand new custom 24 foot guide boat. Where other guide services can only take 2-4 people cramped on little flats boats. FAMILIES and KIDS are welcome. I offer a wide variety of charters ranging from tarpon fishing, back bay fishing for snook, reds and trout, nearshore/offshore fishing, fishing/lunch combo days, shelling/fishing combo tours, shelling trips on our local beaches, dolphin and sunset cruises. Trips are available from 2 hours and up. I provide all gear, licensing, ice, and fish cleaning. I am here to help make all your saltwater fishing dreams come true and to provide you with the absolute best saltwater fishing experience imaginable.

Awesome review Dave! It was pleasure to put you guys on giant tarpon! Look forward to it! September is a killer month for reds and potential poons!

We were dealt less than ideal conditions. With high winds captain josh still put us on fish and good ones too. Great captain. Good fishing. I'll definitely be going out fishing with him again when I'm back in the area.
