Fall Tarpon – Sanibel Fishing Charters!

By | fishing charters Sanibel, fort myers fishing guide, Sanibel fishing charters, Sanibel Fishing Guide | No Comments

We are starting off a little earlier than usual with our fall flats fishing trend. Big tarpon have been making random appearances off the beaches, Delicious triple tail are out floating with the left over crab pods and no wake  Markers, and what seems like endless amounts of Spanish Mackeral & Jack Creval schools are terrorizing the bait schools off the beaches. All of which will readily eat a lively Pilchard or Threadfin. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed for good Sanibel weather to go along with an awesome bite!

Shelling Sanibel fishing charters & Fort Myers fishing charters

Sanibel sightseeing shelling charter 2013

With the strong storms hitting the shores of Sanibel and Captiva Islands so have the shells. Shelling in SW Florida has been phenomenal lately. We took some time off with the family during our slower fishing time to spend some time on Cayo Costa. Cayo Costa is a barrier Island north of Upper Captiva and south of Boca Grande here in Lee County.

We were able to take a few minutes to swim in the clear water and collect some excellent shell specimens just off the shore break. No Junonias this time but we did collect our go-to favorite Olive shells. They look as if they were lacquered to a high gloss by the hand of Mother Nature.

Since this is a fishing report…we’d like to report that redfish has been on fire. Huge schools of reds have been gathering off the beaches of Fort Myers and Sanibel and we’ve taken advantage of catching these beautiful copper beauties.

Sanibel Island Flats Fishing Charter for Redfish

By | Fort Myers fishing, fort myers fishing charter reviews, Sanibel fishing charters, Sanibel Fishing Guide | No Comments

Been having a lot of rain lately as is expected for the month of August. But with the storms, we also get boat loads of redfish swimming aggressively through out our local waters. Evelyn from Puerto Rico Caught her first redfish ever with us and it was a monster! We caught several fish throughout the morning including snook, redfish, snapper, and jacks! It was a awesome morning flats fishing out on the water. We made it back to the dock just in time to safely watch the thunder storms roll in!

Tight lines everybody! Thanks for reading.

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!

We look forward to having you aboard!

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.

Winter Species Sanibel Fishing Charters

By | backwater fishing, Endless Summer Charters, Fishing, fort myers fishing charters, Sanibel fishing, Sanibel fishing charters | No Comments

Carrie Vollmer visiting from Michigan got a chance to wrangle a few black drum and redfish today while enjoying this great weather.

November is a great month for fishing. Not only is the weather great here (sunny and 73 tomorrow) but some good eating species start to return. Mackerel, pompano, sheepshead, black drum and mangrove snapper are among some of the species that are great table fare that migrate here starting in October.

We hope you!ll be lucky enough to visit us in the fall when Sanibel and Fort Myers fishing is incomparable!

EPIC Sanibel Fishing Charter

By | Brendan Coudal, Capt. Bill Hammond, endlesssummercharters, epic, flounder, fort myers fishing charters, redfish, Sanibel fishing charters, snook | No Comments

On Friday I got to have a day that, as a fishing guide, you would like to have everyday be as epic a day as this one.

I got a call from my friend, Sarasota artist and angler Brendon Coudal, who said his friends were in town from Indiana and he and his wife were driving down to meet them.

They thought it would be great to let them experience a little of Florida fishing. I thought that was a great idea and we set a date.

Fishing with locals for me always seems to set up several challenges. It seems as if Mother Nature knows and throws me a curve ball every time. In this case I lost a bit of sleep the night before knowing this.

As if fishing after a big full moon isn’t hard enough we were having a small front move through and another one right behind it. I was sure the conditions weren’t going to be favorable for a good bite but as always I was going to give it my best shot.

I picked up my group at the Sanibel Harbor Marriott Resort and made a short run to my best spot for that tide that I knew of. I hooked a live pilchard on a spinning rig, made a cast and handed it to Brendan. From that first cast it was pandemonium for the next 3 hours! At one point we had fish on the deck and fish hooked up. We caught Snook, redfish, big trout and flounder. Schools of big jacks kept coming in giving my anglers quit the work out.

I could not have asked for a better day for anyone. This trip will go down as one of my personal best. Great friends, great fishing, and a lifetime of memories. Doesn’t get any better than that.
Thank you Brendan for allowing me to guide you, your wife, and friends on Friday. I hope we can make a habit of it!
