Lip’em N Grip’em Fishing Charters

Captain Nate Maynard may just as well have been born on a boat. Growing up in South Florida, he spent much of his youth studying the waters off Pine Island Sound, Charlotte Harbor, and Matlacha and San Carlos Passes, learning the patterns of the prized catches lurking beneath. As he got older, Maynard tested his expertise by entering the tournament scene, refining his approach for fishing the area’s expansive shallow flats, bays, and outer-island passes.

With Lip’em N Grip’em Fishing Charters, Maynard imparts his knowledge to all levels of anglers during guided outings. Supplying all equipment and preferring live bait such as pinfish and shrimp—but willing to use artificial lures based on the availability of live bait and clients’ preferences—the captain leads parties on fishing excursions for hauls of South Florida’s many species, including redfish, snook, and trout. For fisherman seeking bigger trophies, Maynard motors his 22-foot, 225 horse-power Sterling boat toward waters home to tarpon, shark, and flounder shaped like Academy Awards.

Captain Maynard operates by a “no fish, no pay” policy to demonstrate his integrity toward clients. In addition to guiding, he also takes guests on sunset cruises and wildlife excursions such as dolphin and manatee tours.:m]]

Customer Reviews

It was a great experience. My daughter and I had a terrific time. Capt. Nate had everything ready and took us to some great places. I would go with him again for sure.
Peggy S. · October 8, 2012
As novice backcountry anglers, we had a really great time with Nate and appreciated his relaxed style. He might attract both higher tipping and repeat customers if he thought about improving his "marketability" by cleaning up the boat a bit, and creating more of an "experience" of being on the water than just catching fish....example: sharing stories about the history of Matlacha and/or teaching customers about the habits of the targeted fish, unique geographic features (the roles mangroves and oysterbeds play in the estuary "nursery"), etc. That makes the customer feel that they received a much richer experience, regardless of whether or not they caught fish....and may "save" the trip if the fish aren't biting....
