Captain Chris Slattery is a Southwest Florida charter fishing guide who brings his expertise to Boca Grande Tarpon Fishing and Inshore fishing in Boca Grande, Englewood, Palm Island and surrounding areas. Captain Chris has been fishing for over 20 years in SW Florida and has placed in the top five of many tournaments, including the first place in the 2011 Guy Harvey Ultimate Shark Challenge, a first place win in the Flatsmasters 2012 Elite Redfish Series and tie for Team of the Year in the 2012 Redfish Series. My fishing experience in Boca Grande Pass and Englewood is unparalleled and since I have two young children of my own, I welcome a kid friendly fishing environment. FISH ON!

Our group has gone consecutive years with Captain Chris and every year is a success. He is very knowledgeable about the waters and the fish....and most importantly, how to find them! It is an unbelievable experience!

Excellent experience. The wind was awful making the fishing tough but Chris was relentless and never gave up. He tried multiple locations and techniques. Due to his persistence I caught a 5 ft. Tarpon and enjoyed an epic fight.

Other people's reviews. But he was great ! Do it
My brother wants to come down either in September or November and do some fishing. Which month do you recommend and what can you expect to catch then?

Both months are good for snook and redfish. If you decide September than choose later in the month.

Since I am by myself, can it be arranged to participate with others as a party boat? What are the rates for an individual?
