Boca Grande – Charlotte Harbor Fishing Info:


Everglades TarponWe are located about an hour north of Ft.Myers, 45 minutes south of Sarasota and 90 minutes south of Tampa.

Although I usually launch my boat on Boca Grande, I use several other boat ramps in order to minimize running time.  I like to launch the boat as close to where we are fishing as possible.
