Another beautiful day in the waters off Sanibel Island, Florida.  The wind has laid down and the Kingfish were hungry!! Big Bonita, snapper and gag grouper made an appearance as well. When the winds cooperate this is a great time of year for offshore fishing in SW Florida. This is the time of year when the tourist visitation is still light and the water is not overly crowded.  It can be an excellent time for a Sanibel Island fishing vacation considering the low chance of rain and weather still in the 80’s!

 

Winter Species Sanibel Fishing Charters

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!

They’ve been mostly down south off Fort Myers Beach but are working their way up to Boca Grande where these 150 lb plus beauties com year after year.

The action has been good and really heating up as June is just around the corner! There are just a few slots left so don’t delay, book your tarpon charter today!

Sanibel Fishing for Redfish

Today as we left the dock we notice a slight and I mean slight change in temperature. The rain for the last few days has subsided and the “cool” front has turned the redfish bite on in Pine Island sound.
Our charter started off right with 2 nice snook and a big jack and as the high tide started to flood the mangroves the redfish moved off the flats and headed for the tress. We had several nice slot size reds as well as a few oversize on our morning charter.

As fall approaches SW Florida large schools of Redfish will start pushing south though out Pine Island sound a make the flats and islands behind Sanibel and Captiva their home for the next few months until we see the first few cold fronts.

Sanibel Tarpon fishing in May

blogger-image-2021250605They say that March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. I would have to say the lion ate the lamb this year! We are still getting strong winds and here we are in May! The tarpon are slowly making their migration up the west coast of Florida to The craziness of Boca Grande Pass and beyond. We’ve had a few tarpon hook-ups despite the less than favorable weather conditions. Tarpon fishing offshore is about it right now if you want to get the Silver King.

Sanibel Fishing Trout Spectacular

blogger-image-1959687736As we begin December with mild temperatures and light winds, fishing in Pine Island sound has never been hotter. Redfish are still in abundance but we are seeing sizes getting smaller as the water temps start to fall.

his is the first December that trout have been open in many years and our clients have been limiting out each charter. Snapper and sheepshead also are making appearances and as we move into the colder months ahead we will see sizes increase.

Schools of pompano are getting more active on the flats around Sanibel but trout are still the most active in the sound. Nearshore, look for birds to show you the way to Mackerel and Bonito as the offshore bite will also start to heat up this month as well.

Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah!
