About ReelShark Charters
Boca Grande Fishing Guides are not all alike. Captain Mike Myers is a BIG fish specialist as well as a shallow water master. When you book a fishing trip aboard The Reelshark, you will be fishing the World Famous Boca Grande Pass. The Tarpon Capitol of The World.
Not to mention the beautiful gulf beaches of the Gulf of Mexico along with hundreds of miles of Mangrove shorelines and shallow water grass flats that encompass the Charlotte Harbor Aquatic Reserve which includes Lemon Bay, Bull & Turtle Bays, Pine Island Sound, and the Peace River and Myakka River.
The Reelshark is a custom rigged 22’ Pro Lite Flats/Bay boat powered by an unbelievably quiet Suzuki 4-stroke outboard motor. It is one of the driest rides on the water and it will get you to the hot spots fast. On board you will find only top of the line Daiwa Rods & Reels. These combos ensure that when you hook that fish of a lifetime, you stand a better than average chance of bringing your prize boat-side.
Captain Mike's Experience
Capt. Mike is a 3rd generation Floridian who has been fishing the west coast of Florida since he was old enough to hold a fishing pole. By the time he was 12, he had his own personal Snook, Trout and Redfish hot-spots ranging from lower Tampa Bay through Charlotte Harbor.
His passion for shark fishing started around the age of 16, after a rather large Bull Shark ate a Redfish he was pulling in. To this day, Sharks remain one of Capt. Mike’s favorite target species; just ask any of the Boca Grande fishing Guides around.
In his early days, Capt. Mike traded Shark and Back Country fishing techniques with some of the best tarpon anglers the west coast had to offer. In exchange for these techniques, they taught him the fine art of catching the majestic Silver King. Catching a Tarpon in Boca Grande Pass, on the beach or in the back country, is a memory no fisherman will ever forget.
