Proudly fishing the areas of SW FLORIDA (Englewood, Boca Grande) and VIRGINIA (Middle Peninsula, Northern Neck, Chesapeake Bay)


Divergent Fishing Charters offer flexible and affordable rates for inshore and near shore charter fishing for all levels and ages of anglers 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 25ft Pathfinder Bay Boat will be in pursuit of all inshore and near shore species including Snapper, different species of Grouper, Cobia, King Mackerel, Snook, Redfish and the #1 sport fish that is on everyone's bucket list.... The Tarpon!  Let's not forget the Shark opportunity which is always an exciting trip.  We fish with light tackle gear for the inshore fish and live bait with heavy gear for large more aggressive fish.

Your boat for the day Step on to the 2500 Hybrid Pathfinder and you’ll instantly feel the difference. This boat is super stable, and just as capable of fishing in the shallow backwaters of Charlotte Harbor as in the Gulf of Mexico. Powered by a Yamaha 300 she offers an incredibly soft, dry ride with plenty of room. No more feeling crowded or having to move people out of the way to get around. That’s why with all its features and capabilities Divergent still only drafts a true 14 inches, runs upwards of 60 mph, and jumps on plane in water too shallow for some flats boats. You will find Radar, GPS, sonar, VHF radio and a cellular telephone on board. The boat is also fully equipped with Coast Guard approved safety gear. Fishing tackle aboard consist of Penn, Shimano, and Okuma rods and reels. All tackle is purchased and professionally serviced by the captain himself. There is always ample spare equipment on board as well, so you are prepared to catch a variety of fish.
