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.

I took my too younger sons and father-in-law and had a blast. He found us a massive school of Redfish and we pulled in 30 plus inches for three... More

Myself and my three teenagers spent a morning last week with Captain Chris on the inshore/backwaters charter. For starters Cpt. Chris arrived to pick us up exactly on time. And his boat was immaculate. He got us on the redfish in very short order. As a group, myself and my three teenagers caught about 20 reds. I'm no expert but... More

My dad and I went out with Capt. Chris and had a great day. He was extremely friendly, informative, and experienced. He took us to various spots throughout the day and we were able to bring fish home for dinner. I would absolutely recommend going out with him.

Cap'n Chris Slattery guided me and a friend on a half day of fishing today. We requested inshore large game fishing. Captain Chris delivered. We each caught three large redfish. Chris filleted one if them for my colleague to take home. Chris demonstrated a thorough knowledge of the area and found the fish for us. The boat was clean. Chris... More

In shore fishing - Boca Grande Red fish and sea trout He was courteous and helpful making the afternoon fishing trip well worth the cost Chartering a boat is worth the expense We had a fish on the hook within 30 seconds of the first reel in the water
