Divergent Fishing Charters offer flexible and affordable rates for inshore and near shore charter fishing for all levels of anglers and ages aboard the DIVERGENT in the beautiful, sunny #1 fishing area of Florida. Captain Doug Goodman looks forward to showing you a safe and exciting day of inshore and near-shore fishing in and around Charlotte Harbor and the Gulf of Mexico. Our 24ft Cobia center console will be in pursuit of all inshore and near shore species including Snapper, different species of Grouper, Cobia, King Mackeral, Snook, Redfish and the #1 sport fish that is on everyone's bucket list.... The Tarpon!  Let's not forget the Sharks which is always an exciting trip.  We fish with light tackle gear for the smaller fish and live bait with heavy gear for large more aggressive fish.  The time of year dictate the fishing we will put you on. We specialize in Kids' First Fish for the long lasting stories that will last a life time as well as die-hard fisherman, sunset River cruises to eco-tours, and photography excursions.  We offer competitive rates that for a family compare to that of a Cattle boat with 50 people on board. Most trips are 4-6 hrs.


Maximize your inshore fishing experience with Captain Doug and Divergent Fishing Charters. With more than 25 years of fishing experience, we show you  inshore fishing spots that only a local knows because of  a keen sense for the sport and a vast knowledge of fishing holes.  Inshore fishing charters are available for up to 4 people.  Fishing is year round; so regardless of what it's like outside your doorstep, you can always make that catch.


We provide all licenses, tackle, bait and ice. Bring your favorite beverage and snacks (Please no glass).
