We've utilized captains to fish Charlotte Harbor before, but we NEVER had an experience like we did with Justin @ Native Salt Charters. Just after hitting our first spot we were immediately on the fish, and landing trout, snook, jack and redfish. It simply got better with each stop throughout the 4 hour excursion. Justin has a relaxed manor but he's all business when it comes to finding and landing fish. He also made some modest suggestions regarding technique which further optimized our fishing trip.
If you're thinking of investing some of your time and hard earned money fishing the Harbor, go with the BEST...Justin Cauffman of Native Salt Charters 941-815-2162

When you’ve had “catch a Tarpon” on your bucket list for thirty years and you finally have a chance, picking the right charter captain is a nerve wracking ordeal.
Cap’n Justin came highly recommended by another Boca Grande guide, the plan was set in motion.
Captain Justin did not disappoint! He’s everything you want in a fishing guide…he’s personable (made us feel very welcome on his boat) he’s patient (even when you leave the latch up after he tells you to put it down) he’s professional (excellent equipment and tackle) and he’s kind (even when you loose the biggest fish of the day because you didn’t listen to him!).
Justin made it possible for this old man to fulfill the dream of catching Tarpons until my arms were so tired that I didn’t want to catch any more!
If you need a guide in Boca Grande I highly recommend Captain Justin.

I booked a trip with Native Charters for a present for my son. What a tremendous fishing experience with a amazing guide! We were on fish the whole trip and caught multiple species. Justin’s knowledge of the fishery is extensive and he did everything possible to make our day one we will never remember.

Justin is the man! Great captain who will put you on the fish. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to take advantage of what Charlotte Harbor has to offer. Awesome boat, equipment, and knowledge of the area.

Absolutely amazing day of fishing. We chartered trip with this guy because of seeing all the great reviews. It was me, my wife, our teenage daughter and her boyfriend. My wife and daughter had never done anything like this before and we all had a blast. Over a month later my wife still talks about how much fun we had that day. We caught well over 100 Snook, Reds and Trout. Capt Justin is the man to go with when looking for a perfect day of fishing. We will definitely be back with him next year to catch some of them giant Tarpon. Thanks so much Justin!!!

I’ve known of Justin for years from his successes in our area redfish and snook tournaments. A friend and I went out with him recently and had a great time with nonstop action of snook, trout, jacks, and a very large redfish. He is very accommodating and a professional and will do his best to put you on fish.

Been on a tarpon trip and an inshore trip with Justin, and he got us on fish immediately both times. Professional but laid back, he helped out my 11 year old son and his buddy during the inshore trip, but still let them catch all they could handle. I’d recommend him to anyone, top notch guide for sure.

We celebrated my dads birthday by taking him fishing with Captain Justin. We all had a great time and caught far, far more than we expected. Captain Justin had all the right spots for us to hit and was very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Captain Justin and look forward to booking our next trip.

We recently did a trip with Captain Justin Cauffman from Native salt charters. We had a phenomenal time with nonstop action. Justin really knows his stuff when it comes to fishing. I brought my nine-year-old son and he absolutely loved it and cannot wait to go again. We caught big snook, trout, Jack’s. Justin was very nice, polite, professional, very relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere. I would highly recommend going on a trip with Captain Justin from Native salt charters. And we will be booking again!!

We had a great time and caught a lot of fish with Justin on our backcountry trip. It was a memorable experience, especially for our 12 year old.
Justin made an extra effort to find him some fun fish to catch. He was very knowledgeable and patient with our group. We'll absolutely do this with him again.
