About Me

Captain Andrew Herzog has made Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor his home, and has been fishing this area for years.  Due to his extensive knowledge of the area and the species which live in our waters, his charters provide an enjoyable experience and result in happy customers!  Fishing in Boca Grande is a great addition to any Florida vacation.  

He is a USCG Certified Captain, licensed and insured to run guides in the state of Florida.  He works closely with Gray Fishtag, as well as NOAA and FWC, assisting with data for various research programs.  Andrew is an experienced professional who strives to get his clients "on fish" every charter.  Every guest uses top quality tackle, provided to the angler at no additional charge.  Regardless of your previous experience fishing, a charter led by Capt Andrew can guide and educate you on how to catch that fish on your bucket list!
