Fishing in SW Florida for Redfish

As we move into the “dog days of Summer” and water temperatures start to rise, fishing for redfish in Pine Island sound is just what the doctor ordered, and the key to a successful day is tidal movement. As we get into the end of August the temperatures in the sound are nearing the 90s, find areas where the water moves faster look for small cuts between grass flats and oyster bars. Slow your baits down and make it a little easier target for the fish to catch. A trick I learned years ago is to trim the fins off of pin fish and float him under popping cork. This does two things slows the bait down and release and scent for the redfish to find. Fish the sand hole or “potholes” on the flats as well as oyster bars and I’m sure this technique will help you catch more reds. This technique will also get you hook ups with trout and small sharks that are cruising the flats looking for a easy meal.

Tight lines!

Fort Myers Fishing for Reds

Redfish have been on fire in the Fort Myers and Sanibel areas of Pine Island Sound.  Our customers have been tearing it up and for one reason and one reason only…Capt. Bill knows the habits of redfish in SW Florida.

Just about every charter with Endless Summer Charters has “limited out” on the redfish bite.  This makes for some good eating and happy anglers.

We have been sending many of our happy customers to restaurants to have their catch cooked for dinner.  We’ve even had a few eat their fresh catch at The Waterfront restaurant on Pine Island while on their charter with Capt. Bill.  The chef will prepare a plate full of fried redfish with sides for a nice price too.  There is nothing like eating fresh fish just minutes after catching!

We will be adding restaurants to this list and hope you come back to see what’s next from the water of SW Florida.
