Snook fishing GUARANTEED in Pine Island Sound

Meet the Captain

   Originally from eastern Long Island, Capt. George Grosselfinger guided for trophy striped bass guaranteeing a 30lb or better fish or it was a free charter during summer  months.  Before being a full time resident of Pine Island , Capt. George earned two Masters Degrees and was awarded The Most Inspirational Teacher in 2003 by the President and the US Department of Education.

    Both novices and experts in Snook fishing still enjoy listening and learning.  Putting a smile on your face as you hook trophy Snook with artificial lures only, is what Capt. George is all about.

Keep the sport in Sportfishing


For shallow water fishing of Pine Island Sound, Sanibel, Captiva and nearby mangrove islands, Capt. George used two boats.

   An 18' Back Bay flats boat powered by Yamaha.  The boat is equipped with a jack plate and trim tabs for a smooth ride.  Dry storage for personal items and rods and reels.

   For one person charters, and to get into fishing areas no one else can get to, Capt. George runs a 16' John Dory with a 4-stroke Honda 30hp.

   Capt. George's rods and reels include some of the best tackle on the market.  St. Croix rods, Shimano Sustain and Quantum Cabo reels.

No one works harder. He's so good at putting his clients into Snook because he fishes these areas almost non-stop in his free time, and leaves no stone unturned. The first time I went tarpon fishing with him I landed on and lost another one after a long battle.  I've also caught nice redfish and trout with him as well.  What really amazed me is how he put me into 30+inch class Snook on poppers during an extended cold front that pushed the water temperatures to 59 degrees.  He just knew where the fish would be under these conditions.

My experience was full of Snook(36+inches) and excellent action. This has been my third trip with Capt. George and I will go back again.  I'm always on the fish and the guidance and knowledge that Capt. George has is fantastic.

Capt.George Great Snook Charter.  Capt. George guarantees Snook and did not disappoint. He knows every nook and cranny of the mangroves and no one will give more effort than him trying to get you that trophy Snook.  I highly recommend fishing with Capt.George if you are in the area.
