Master Captain George Frantz has been fishing the waters in Southwest Florida since he was a kid! Born and raised in Punta Gorda, he is a true Florida native. His passion for fishing began when his grandpa “Poppy” would take him fishing and let him drive the boat! They would spend summer days and weekends chasing redfish, snook, trout, tarpon and a variety of other fish around Charlotte Harbor. George was amazed at how many different types of fish there were to catch. They used “love’s lures” that allowed them to catch two fish at a time!
The time that he spent searching the flats, exploring the canals, creeks and river, and wading the beaches has paid off. George has been recognized as a competitive angler in the Flatsmaster’s Tournament Series. He has fished lots of other local events, earning a sponsorship for most tournaments. Recently, George competed in several large events such as the Xtreme Redfish Series, CBCA Series and the Charlotte High Redfish Tournament.
George has been doing guided fishing charters on Charlotte Harbor, Peace River and surrounding areas since 2007! His passion for fishing and his knowledge of the local area give him an advantage over his competitors and make for a true fishing adventure!
