Overview

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!
