Welcome to Master Dangler Charters where the use of Flies and Artificial Lures are my specialty. If you are looking for an experience of a lifetime sight fishing the most popular game fish around, look no further for you have come to the right place. We welcome all anglers that look for the same thrill that comes with seeing a fish, casting to a fish, and getting that fish to eat. There is without a doubt nothing better then watching a fish eat your lure whether it is a fly on the end of your fly rod or an artificial swim bait at the end of your spinning rod.  So we would like to welcome you to hands down the most professional fishing guide in the state of Florida, Captain Charles Hertel.


Your Captain's Mission:

To deliver hands down the best Inshore Sight Fishing experience targeting Redfish, Trout, Snook, Black Drum and the elusive Silver King (Tarpon) While providing a safe, fun and knowledgable experience for each and every guest. You will not only be leaving this experience with a couple of professional photos taken by yours truly but memories you will never forget and knowledge shared with you that has been earned through thousands of hours on the water. As an active conservationist I strongly practice Catch, photo and Release only. Our mission is to instill these very important practices in all of our guests making it possible for future generations to enjoy such a place and and an experience like the one you will receive. 


Space Coast Fishing

The Space Coast offers some of the best Redfish and Trout Fishing in the state of Florida. Home to the World Famous Mosquito Lagoon and the Indian River lagoon together they are without a doubt some of the best sight fishing there is for Monster Reds and oversized trout. These two bodies of water are thriving habitats filled with miles of mangrove shorelines and grass flats. 

On your trip your guide will be poling you along shorelines and grass flats looking for tailing and pushing fish. By not using bait there will be plenty of casting going on so be prepared for non-stop casting. While cruising the flats you can expect to be targeting potholes where fish like to lie as well as keeping an eye out for visible fish "pushing" along. 

Your guide will have both a Spinning and a Fly setup ready and on the boat for use. You will have an option to equip yourself with either or both throughout the day. 

If you are looking to use bait (Shrimp, Crabs, or mullet) I am not the guide for you. I use artificial lures only on my trips.
