Fish the pristine waters of Southwest Florida with Captain Chuck Eichner !  Imagine leaning back on your rod with all your strength trying to stop a scorching run from a BIG SNOOK….the Snook has control and runs deep under the Mangrove Bushes and jumps 2 feet…………….or envision the sight of a tailing Redfish inhaling your fly  as we quietly stalk the flats…………..and of course……., the leap of a 100 pound plus Tarpon will burn an image in your mind FOREVER!!  



Welcome to the greatest fishing location in Florida .  Fish in an unspoiled paradise where often the only company you have is exotic wildlife…..Manatees, Alligators, Dolphins, Egrets and an a host of others that will boggle your mind.  Fish aboard the Cadillac of all boats- an 18.5’ Maverick Flats Boat with 150 H.P. Yamaha, equipped with the best of everything using the best tackle; St. Croix Rods, Shimano and Daiwa Reels.  



Captain Chuck Eichner is dedicated to providing you with one thing:  Catching Fish and Having Fun.  For those who really like diversity  in addition to fishing, we can explore remote areas and hunt for Manatees, Alligators and other wildlife or visit remote beaches for fossil hunting and a beach lunch.  Capt. Chuck lives to fish and still has that “Huck Finn” twinkle in his eye and a passion to share his knowledge with everyone.  Operating from his waterfront home, few others can offer the experience that fishing nearly 365 days a year can provide.  


On an average day you can expect to catch as many as 4-8 different species.  We will fish with whatever it takes to make it happen- livebait, artificials or fly; for the purist, I offer over 18 years of expert guiding knowledge using lures/flies.


For Chuck, the formula for choosing the right guide is simple:

Experience+Knowledge+Great Personality+Love of Fishing= A GREAT FISHING TRIP   In fact, I am so confident that we can put you on fish, I offer the “NO FISH – NO PAY” guarantee.  



December 26th, 2003- I have never caught so many fish in my life!  Our first fish was a 25# Snook!  We caught 10 species of fish and Chuck kept us on fish all day!  He never settles for quiet spells and moved constantly to keep the rod bent!  Mark & Sandy Y. Fredericksburg, VA


December 22, 2003- We caught a fish on the first cast, last cast and every cast in between!  The best trip of my lifetime!  We caught over 140 fish- 75 Redfish, Nice Trout, lots of small Snook and Sheepshead.  Just an unbelievable fishing trip!  Jerry Boutin     Michigan
