One of the best things about retiring in Florida is the great weather all-year-round and the wealth of outdoor activities you can do in your free time! Here are some of the best fishing spots to hit up with friends and family if you are considering senior living and retiring in Florida!
Come experience some of that acclaimed Florida fishing for yourself in Port Charlotte, Florida, at MM Charters!
Get onboard a 25′ Sea Born FX25, which has a 300 HP Yamaha engine and was first constructed in 2017. You will be handling your first fish before anybody else has departed the dock, thanks to its top cruising speed of 53 knots.
This boat is equipped with safety gear, a fighting chair, a trolling motor, a GPS, and a fishfinder. It’s everything you require to locate and catch the most sought-after fish in this area!
If you missed tarpon season, there are plenty of inshore and nearshore fish that bite year-round, including redfish, amberjack, snook, and spotted seatrout.
For every excursion, MM Charters offers fishing licenses, live bait, lures, gear, rods, and reels. The captain will even clean and fillet your fish for you to bring home and cook up in the kitchen for a delicious and rewarding treat!
Boca Grande And Beyond
This 5-star spot is another awesome place to head to when you retire in Florida. The boat you’ll be fishing from, a 2022 Skeeter sx2250, can accommodate up to 6 people. The boat has a Yamaha 250 SHO motor, a Simrad GPS/fishfinder, a Minn Kota trolling motor, and a 10′ power pole shallow water anchor. It’s very fast and well-built, giving you extra time to fish.
World-famous inshore and nearshore fishing can be experienced in the Charlotte Harbor, Gasparilla Sound, Pine Island Sound, and the Gulf of Mexico. Capt. Dylan has you covered for everything, from tough fighting sport fish like Tarpon, Snook, Redfish, and Trout to tasty fish like Grouper, Snapper, Tripletail, and Sheepshead. Pick-up locations and customized fishing outings can be arranged.
Straw Hats Fishing Charters
If you’re retiring in Western Florida, check out Straw Hats Fishing Charters! Head out to sea in the brand-new 26′ Avenger Bay boat and explore the reefs and rivers. On board, up to 6 visitors are welcome as they travel to several sweet spots in search of some prized fish. While you combat the enormous fish, take advantage of the 360-degree view and the roomy deck. The captain will supply water and snacks to keep you fueled. The equipment is all brand new, and all licenses will be provided as well!
Snorkeling is an option for cooling off after you work up a sweat. Contact your captain so that they can arrange the equipment. Ask Capt. Cody to take you on an evening tour to view the sites and watch the dolphins if that’s more up your alley.
Your edible catch will also be cleaned and filleted for you to bring home.
