Beyond Borders Outfitters

Our Florida Fishing Charter Guides

Our guides take great pride in offering any level of angler the best opportunity to catch a tarpon.

Beyond Border, Outfitters is well known for offering world-class saltwater fishing charters. We offer the finest light tackle and fly fishing trips on the fertile waters of Charlotte Harbor and Boca Grande Pass. For nearly eight months each year, our guides dedicate themselves to consistently offering a quality angling experience targeting the highly sought-after tarpon. Also referred to as the silver king, the tarpon is perhaps the most coveted saltwater game fish.

At Beyond Borders Outfitters, our guides take great pride in offering any level of angler the best opportunity to catch a tarpon. It is not uncommon for even a novice angler to hook multiple tarpon, with some anglers having hooked over twenty tarpon in a single day. We also target snook, redfish, trout, and sharks year-round, while fishing for permit, cobia, and pompano seasonally.

Beyond Borders Outfitters is a full-service saltwater and tarpon fishing charter in Florida. We not only offer top-tier fishing charters with the best guides in the business, but we offer local knowledge and information to ensure your trip is one of a kind. We can help with lodging and accommodations, airport information, directions, restaurants, and entertainment, as well as large group hosting.

Our Florida fishing guides are all locals and longtime residents of the Charlotte Harbor area. We do not employ part-time or seasonal captains. We believe in the importance of being on the water full time and dedicating yourself to the demands of excelling at the art of fishing.

Beyond Borders Outfitters targets tarpon beginning in late March continuing through October. Traditionally, tarpon season spans from May through early July in the famous Boca Grande Pass. The guides at Beyond Borders Outfitters, however, have learned and perfected the techniques required to catch tarpon eight months out of the year. Our guides are recognized and renowned for our ability to target and catch tarpon late into the summer months and into the early fall.

The guides of Beyond Borders Outfitters specialize in inshore and light tackle tarpon fishing charter in Florida. We are locally known and respected for our ability to catch tarpon nearly every day of the season.

You will target and sight-fish tarpon on inshore and gulf waters with one of our experienced captains. You will learn techniques and tactics that are born out of countless hours on the water that only a truly dedicated guide can know. Each of our guides has found a calling in becoming a full-time charter captain. Fishing is what we know and love, and it is our goal every day to share our knowledge and to help make lasting memories with our clients. Our guides are not part of the all too common seasonal faction that has migrated to the sport. Our guides have either been full-time guides for their entire lives or have long ago left other careers to dedicate themselves to the sport.
