Charlotte Harbor Fishing Forecast

Hello my name is Capt. Bobby Woodard. I am a United States Coast Guard licensed and insured charter fishing captain. I was born and raised in Polk County, Florida where I still reside today. I was fortunate enough to grow up on a lake and started bass fishing as a young boy. As time progressed my quest for bigger fish grew. I started saltwater flats fishing as an early teen and never looked back. I was hooked on flats fishing immediately and concentrated my efforts on catching large breeder size snook. After catching many slot size and larger snook my quest for bigger fish led me to start tarpon fishing. After battling many tarpon, I finally landed my first Tarpon (around 110 lbs). That first tarpon was the spark that created what can only be described as an obsession! I immediately started studying all aspects of tarpon fishing and dedicated my angling time to targeting the majestic silver king. After years of practice I decided to share my passion with others in hopes of giving them the angling honor of landing a beautiful, hard fighting and high flying tarpon! Thus Fly ‘Em High Charters was born.
