Spring break family fishing!

Some of Florida’s finest saltwater fishing occurs in Southwest Florida. This area of Florida has some of the best back country, flats and near shore fishing in the state, using light tackle, it’s angling at its best. Florida’s extensive network of bays, mangrove islands and tidal creeks that permeate the region present angling challenges to the accomplished angler as well as the novice. There are thousands of miles of shoreline, oyster bars and acres and acres of sea-grass flats that attract an abundance of saltwater fish.

For the adventurer or true sportsman, Tarpon fishing for the prized “Silver King” is it. Capt. Bill, Capt. John and Capt. Matt have the experience and know-how to help you land that trophy. During season in Sanibel there is nothing like Tarpon fishing in Boca Grande pass! Did you know the first tarpon taken on rod and reel was caught just minutes from Port Sanibel Marina?

Roaming the inshore waters are four of Florida’s most sought after game fish, the Tarpon, Snook, Redfish and the Spotted Sea Trout. Thousands of anglers come to Southwest Florida each year for the chance at a Grand Slam, catching a fish of each species in a single day. In addition to the fishing, Florida’s wildlife helps to provide an extraordinary aesthetic experience.

Offshore and Deep Sea we have many Grouper species, snapper, shark, etc. You may be lucky enough to catch the mighty Goliath Grouper while fishing with our guides!

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!

Fishing in SW Florida for Redfish

By | Endless Summer Charters, fishing charters, Fishing for Redfish, Fort Myers fishing, Pine Island fishing, redfish charters, Sanibel fishing, shark fishing, snook | No Comments

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!
