Captain Roger Crafton

I am a USCG licensed Captain as well as a lifetime sport-fisherman, tournament angler and local fishing guide. When you book a Boca Grande fishing charter with me, you'll have several options depending on what's biting, what's in season, and what you want to experience! We can go backcountry fishing in the mangroves, explore the Charlotte Harbor area, or run the beaches and try our luck in the crystal clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Species we can target include Snook, Redfish, Trout and Tarpon - depending on the season and the always unpredictable mother nature... 


Fishing charters include all necessary bait and tackle, and my captain's license covers everyone in the boat. If you bring a camera or phone, a waterproof bag is highly recommended. Please bring whatever drinks and snacks you'd like. I will have a cooler with ice, so you will not need one. If you choose to bring one, please keep it small. Bring sunscreen and all other sun and/or insect protection. A hat is always a good idea too! 

I'll take you to waters that other captains won't.

I see what other captains can't.

I'll get you on fish.

The backwaters of Charlotte Harbor and Gasparilla Sound are among the most prolific producers of snook, redfish and trout in the world. These areas of pristine grass flats and mangrove islands are ideal habitat not only for trophy fish, but for countless varieties of marine life and tropical birds.
