Welcome to Entice Charters

   Entice Charters proudly serves the Fort Myers, Sanibel Island, Bonita Springs and Naples area. We fish the areas of Estero Bay, Pine Island and the Everglades. We also run charters fishing the nearshore wrecks off Fort Myers Beach, Bonita Beach, Everglades and Sanibel Island. Whether we're targeting inshore species such as snook, redfish, or trout in the backcountry or offshore game fish like cobia, permit, shark, grouper, or tarpon on the nearshore wrecks, Capt. Scott Theis will provide his anglers with years of knowledge so they'll leave satisfied after a day out on the water. 

  Southwest Florida offers some of the best saltwater game fishing in the world.  Pine Island Sound, the Everglades, Naples and Fort Myers Beach are home to endless mangrove islands, abundant grass flats, backcountry waters, wildlife and numerous wrecks. This unique environment is like no other place in the world supporting a diverse fishery.  The pristine grass flats and mangrove islands of Estero Bay, Pine Island Sound and the Everglades is where anglers can target snook, reds, trout and other inshore saltwater species cruising the flats and mangrove shorelines in search of baitfish.  Experience the exhilarating rush of a snook or redfish peeling out line as you're trying to stop them from running for protection under the heavy cover of a mangrove shoreline.

   If you're looking to fish the nearshore wrecks, the Gulf waters off Fort Myers Beach,  Sanibel Island, Bonita Beach and the Everglades is home to cobia, grouper, permit, tarpon and sharks in addition to many other saltwater gamefish species.  Witness pods of cobia, tarpon and permit crossing the nearshore wrecks during their Spring migration.  These fish are well known for offering some of the most intense rod bending action. Enjoy watching the aerial display of  a fighting tarpon. Tarpon are most prolific off  the Fort Myers and Sanibel Island beaches during the late Spring/early Summer months.  Entice Charters also offers some of the finest grouper fishing in Southwest Florida.  Enjoy the battle with a giant goliath grouper or a gag grouper as you're trying to pull them away from the depths of the structure.   

  In addition to fishing charters, Captain Scott offers several other guided trips including shelling and sightseeing tours around the estuaries and mangrove wilderness of Estero Bay and Sanibel/Captiva Islands.   Encounter a myriad of wildlife including a variety of migratory and wading birds on your sightseeing tour.  See osprey and bald eagles soaring high above the mangroves in search of their prey. Enjoy watching a pod of dolphins playfully interacting with each other as we cruise along the inshore waterways of Estero Bay.  Bring your camera to capture the moment and come experience Southwest Florida with Entice Charters.  Choose one of my many charters that are available and book a trip today!
