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 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!
We 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!
We look forward to having you aboard!

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.
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.
