Captain Tom Carter
My history of service has been long and well served. I am a Retired U.S. Army Combat Medical Specialist turned U.S. Merchant Marine Officer licensed by the United States Coast Guard, which has afforded me many life experiences both on and off the sea.
I am a full-time guide, with over 35 years of fishing experience, dedicated to providing all skill levels of anglers the opportunity to catch the fish of a lifetime. My specialty is inshore and nearshore charters ranging from 4, 6, or 8 hours in length. Fishing for Speckled Sea Trout, Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, or even Shark, this is just part of what is available, as the waters of Pine Island Sound, and the barrier islands play host to a number of other interesting creatures, from Dolphin, Manatee, to hundreds of exotic birds! Come treat yourself and your family to a great day on the water whether it be for fishing, sight seeing, or just relaxing on the water in the Florida sunshine!
Carter’s Charters was founded on the shores of Lake Michigan in 1996 out of Leland, Michigan and in 2014, settled in Ft. Myers, Florida as Carter’s Sport Fishing, LLC.
