Capt. Blake Matherly

Capt. Blake Matherly Fort Myers, FL Incorporated Licensed Insured

Pine Island Sound lies between Fort Myers and the barrier islands of Sanibel, Captiva, North Captiva, Cayo Costa and Boca Grande. Thousands of acres of grass flats provide habitat and hiding places for dozens of species of gamefish.  Spring and early summer find tarpon moving through the area on their way north to spawn.  Redfish, Snook, Jacks and Ladyfish haunt the flats throughout the year – although summer and fall are the best times to find tailing Reds.  The quiet approach afforded by Captain Blake’s flats boat lets you sneak right up to feeding fish.  Few things match the thrill of sight-fishing to a tailing Redfish, lurking Snook or holed-up SeaTrout.  

Captain Blake Matherly guides fly fishers and light tackle anglers in pursuit of gamefish. The 17ft. flats boat is perfect for a group of 3 anglers. There is a casting platform as well as poling platform, and livewell for the bait. We also have all Safety Equipment necessary, including life jackets, flares, VHF Radio and fire extinguishers.

SW Florida is without a doubt a top fishing destination. Captain Blake specializes in backcountry fishing, flats fishing, river fishing, inshore and nearshore fishing. With a Private Charter you are able to have the experience of the guide at your fingertips. Captain Blake has been fishing these waters for almost 20 years, and is a member of numerous Pro Guide programs.

All fishing is catch-and-release only so we can continue to protect our fisheries. Trip prices include 3 anglers, all fishing licenses, fly fishing equipment, bait, lures, rods, reels, and equipment. Children are more than welcome to come along!

Captain Blake loves being on the water and watching the excitement when his customers feel the bite of one of the many fish in the Fort Myers area. We want your experience on the water to be one you’ll remember forever!
