Location & Directions

Boca Grande is on the Southwest Gulf Coast of Florida. It encompasses Charlotte Harbor, Pine Island Sound and Gasparilla Island and is near Placida, Florida and Punta Gorda, Florida. Although famous for it's fantastic Tarpon fishing, Boca Grande also hold large numbers of Snook, Redfish, Seatrout and more. In total, there is over 75 sq. miles of grass flats, mangrove islands, channels and deep basins. The water is generally clear enough to sight cast to most species. Because the area has hundreds of mangrove islands, anglers can always find protected water to fish and usually have reasonably flat seas. Boca Grande is approximately 35 miles south of Sarasota and is easily accessed from Tampa or Ft. Myers airports. This area is one of the last remaining bastions of what Florida is noted for. Don't forget your camera!
