About Luck o' The Irish Fishing Charters
As one of the most affordable private fishing charters in Southwest Florida, Luck o' The Irish is the most exciting back-bay fishing service you will find. With 4 passionate and experienced captains, we work all year round, running 4 boats, including our 27' Carolina Skiff and 20' Mako. Depending on season and tides, we target anything from Sheepshead to Snapper, Red Fish, Trout, Snook, and the occasional shark on our back bay adventures. If you prefer to fish near shore, we will have you fishing for Snapper, King Fish, Grouper, Permit, sharks and more! We offer military discounts and are a family-friendly business. We encourage passengers to bring water, snacks, hats, and sun-block, while we provide the bait, poles, and fun! Passengers 21 and older are permitted to bring their own alcoholic beverages on board. Call today! Relax and catch some dinner.
