Sanibel Fishing Charters Winter Fishing Report

Sanibel fishing charters for Pompano

This might have well been a Lady’s Florida state record at 6.2 lbs. but this Pompano made its way to the dinner plate.

January and February can be an interesting time to fish in Southwest Florida. With a cold start to the month Fort Myers and Sanibel Island has seen record low temps and winds blowing hard out of the northeast. Finding a place to hide has been our biggest issue in Pine Island Sound. Finding a place to hide where there’s not twenty other boats doing the same thing is another problem. Despite off of that our captains have been getting it done and finding some hungry fish.

Sanibel fishing for tripletail

Tripletail fishing is a favorite of locals of SW Florida

Captain Matt has managed to venture out into the Gulf of Mexico between blows and has gotten on the triple tail bite. The bite has been insanely good and his clients have been pleased with the awesome table fare. This prehistoric looking fish can offer quite a fight, not to mention the thrill of the hunt. The intensity of this fish on light tackle is thrilling to say the least.

Captain Bill has been beating the bushes and deeper channels to pull out big sheephead as well as snapper and trout on the colder days. He is also been finding nice slot size redfish on days when water temps rise about 65. Slowing down the retrieve and soaking baits have been the key in the cold weather.

Captain John has proven that perseverance pays off this month. John uses techniques that remind us a little bit of the methods used by most of the old timers. Patience has paid off on big outgoing tides on the flats and the redfish can’t resist. For Capt. John’s clients nice slot size redfish and gator trout have put smiles on their faces.

Don’t count out the cold months of January and February, it can be an awesome time to fish with a little patience and some warm clothes. You are sure to have a  great time on a fishing charter with the captains from Endless Summer Charters no matter what time of year.

Check out our What’s Biting page on our website to see what species are most likely to bite per month.

Sheephead is great table fare for those who know how to filet this bony fish.

We want to thank San Carlos Marine for keeping us up and going on the water. We also want to thank Dan James Custom Rods for the best fishing rods around and Florida Fishing Products for supplying us with top of the line reels. To top that off, Fins Situational Braid line is our number one choice on the water and try their Wind Tamer line on windy days.

Make sure to call and book your Spring fishing charter as soon as possible. We are booking quickly. Tarpon charters in May, June and July are also booking fast!

It was a great day on the water for the Moore’s today redfish were practically jumping in the boat due to the recent fullmoon and outgoing ride. We were able to get enough smaller ones in slot size for dinner. The Moore’s are on their anniversary trip. Happy anniversary you two and hope the redfish turned out perfect!

Summer is cooling down, Redfish are heating up!

Summer days are starting to feel a little cooler lately, and when that happens. Our schools of redfish are not to far behind. We’ve been seeing numerous schools on just about every shallow grass flat in our bay.

It’s exciting for us in that the redfish often times are spotted by them waiving their big bronze tail out of the water. They are spooky, but sneaky casts at them are not often over looked!

It is HOT! Not only the weather but fishing is hot despite the warm temperatures.  We are lucky to live on the coast near the beaches of Sanibel and Fort Myers. The sea breezes give a little relief to our coastal areas while inland towns are sweltering.

It’s always nice to go swimming in the Gulf after a few hours of fishing and maybe even stop for a cocktail at Cabbage Key or Tarpon Lodge.  We now even offer lunch trips to Useppa, a private club and island only reachable by boat. Take a dip in the pool grab a cocktail and get cooled down for an afternoon of fishing for redfish and snook!

We are thrilled to be able to offer our guests the special privileges of the Useppa Club as well as our family favorite, Cabbage Key.  With early Fall coming it’s the perfect time to book a charter just as the weather cools down and the tourists aren’t around.  Fall is beautiful here.  Crisp air and clear water are two things that come to mind when I think of Fall fishing… hope you can join us!

645We have a new booking system that makes it super simple to book your charter online 24/7.  You even get an instant confirmation after you book your excursion.  Check out our calendar of availability now!

Perfect Weather for a Sanibel Fishing Charter!

blogger-image-716909777 We have had some real “Chamber of Commerce” days with our weather. November is my wife’s favorite time of year because it’s the best of everything, weather, fishing, clear water and no waiting time at restaurants!

The high pressure that gives us this great weather can also make for some unfavorable fishing conditions. However with a little planning you can you have an incredible day. I had the opportunity to fish with some great families for the last few days and we found ourselves with extra low tides in the morning. We started out by fishing exposed osyster bars and grass flats in Pine Island Sound which produced so many redfish we lost count! Several slot size snook as well as a few small bonnet sharks.

As the tide rolled in along with the wind we worked into the shoreline and creeks to stay out the wind where the schools of jacks were so abundant we almost ran out of bait. Several snook and snapper where caught as well. With winter fast approaching in this perfect days of fall are soon to come to an end which only means Pompano and sheepshead should be knocking on our door pretty soon.

Fiery sunrise over Fort Myers Beach

Just had to post this photo of the sunrise Capt. Bill witnessed yesterday morning for green-eyed envy solely. 🐬

Little did we know there were billions of gallons of lake water being released from Lake Okeeochobee into the Caloosahatchee River today. Luckily, it didn’t hurt the fishing.
