Sanibel Fishing Charter

Fishing Sanibel and Captiva islands has been exciting for most days. The Redfish have started to move out of my area, but the Snook have moved in the passes to replace them. The fishing has been like mid summer, with the bites in the morning and hot weather in the afternoon. Tarpon have been all around the beach and passes lately. Bites have been slow coming, 1 to 3 per trip. The new moon this week should get them in the pass and feeding. The Trout, Jacks and sharks are cooperating for family fun fishing.

February Has Been Great Fishing !

Feburary was a great month to be on the water and March looks to be as good or better. Lots of small trout, ladyfish and a few Redfish have been on the boat the last month. I have been fishing with a combination of artificials on jigs and shrimp under corks and cut bait. I have watched large sharks cruising the flats and channels, we caught a couple of big bull sharks during one of the warmer weeks. You can tell we are quickly moving into spring as there are quite a few gig turtles over the deeper grass flats. The white bait has moved in and out over the last few weeks. Soon the mackrel will move in to feed on the bait followed by more sharks and Tarpon. The Tarpon season will be starting early if the warm weather continues, My guess is early April for the Tarpon season, we will have to wait and see. Pick a date and call to book your next trip.

January brought its first cold front

January brought its first cold front and a 30 Deg. start for 4 brave anglers. I opened the cooler drain as always and filled up with ice and bottled water. At the dock after getting the shrimp in the well and rigging a few rods I walked on a slippery spot on the deck...ICE. The sheephead and a few flounder were still biting. The weather warmed to almost 65 deg by mid day with beautiful blue skys.
