Spring fishing Sanibel and Captiva

The Fishing around Sanibel and Captiva is better after no red tide for almost 3 years. Catch and release for Snook, Trout, and Redfish have helped improve the population. The fish are getting bigger, some are breeding size. The FWC is taking comments as we approach the May 31t end date for the closed season. I support an extension to the closed season. This would allow more time for the fish to grow thru the slot and reestablish the numbers of large egg-laying females. I am targeting snapper near shore and Spanish mackerel for eating. Folks are booking out early and making up for last year's travel restrictions, book early!. I have April filled and May is almost full. Call, Text, or e-mail to book. Capt. Dave

Sanibel Captiva fishing for toothy critters

 The Summer has settled into the traditional wind patterns. East breezes in the morning and westerly in the afternoon. The seas are calm and we are running out 1-5 miles to fish for Mangrove Snapper and other volunteers.  New to fishing and never in saltwater fishers joined me in the last few weeks. Lots of fun catching your first snook, biggest fish, Barracuda. Connor caught the Baracuda and the big Bonito. Hunter caught his first fish, Snapper, and helped his Mom and dad, Emily and Josh fill the cooler for a Fish Fry. August is ready for you, Call today. 239-410--7194

Sanibel is fishing in June

   Welcome back to Sanibel and Captiva Island. The Islands have a few lucky visitors enjoying the slow pace of the gulf coast.  You will find a place to stay and a restaurant to dine in.  The beaches are 25% full and the water is a perfect 85 degrees.  Time to go fishing. Snook, Trout, and redfish are closed to keep until May 2021. They are all biting for catch and release action. If you want to catch a keeper, I've been fishing for mangrove snappers. Pictures of some happy clients!
