Sanibel is a little quiet today while many take a day off to give thanks and spend time with family. I am writing today to tell you all what i'm thankful for. I am blessed with a loving and understanding wife. She dosen't complain when I work long hours and come home stinking of fish. I have three children, a grand son, and both parents. We all have our health and each other. As we eat together and share each others company i will try to just soak in the time together. Im thankful for all of you that I get to go fishing with.

October was a busy month looking for redfish. Thanks to all the visitors that came to Captiva Island to fish with me out of McCarthys Marina. The fish have been biting all days except the day after our cold front. Snook are still biting along with Trout and redfish. Here are a few of the memorable catches last month. I have plenty of openings in November. Call to book your day on the water. Captain Dave

The Fishing report will resume on the next post as hurricane irma has taken over the headlines. The Islands of Sanibel, Captiva and Pine Island were spared a major blow Sunday September 10th. The eye shifted just to the east of us and we got the winds, but missed the intense part and alot of the rain. Trees went down and power was out for 70% - 90% of us. The islands are being powered up and cleaned up now and will be open in days. My house in Cape Coral came out great, only lost the pool screen and gave me some yard work , I spent 3 days preparing for the storm, and only one day on clean up. Last year we replaced my shingle roof with a metal roof, nice to know that it was ready to handle a big wind. If you would like to go fishing i have September 25th-28th open.The redfish are in now. Thanks to all, Captain Dave

School has started after a summer break for families. This marks another season over and the quiet time has begun. If you are in Sanibel or Captiva island now you find the pace a little slower. The water is less crowded, beaches a little quiet. More time to watch dolphins, search for shells and do a little fishing. September and October are great fishing months for Redfish, snapper, trout and more. Call today to book your trip.

Sanibel fishing has heated up with Tarpon snook, Trout and a few redfish. The Rain cools off the waters in Pine Island sound every afternoon. I have started my days at 7am to beat the heat and get to the fish while the are feeding. We are swimming off the beach, watching dolphins or fishing, there,s always a way to enjoy Sanibel and Captiva. Make sure you get out to the beach to catch the Sunsets this time of year, they can be truly amazing!. I still have openings in July, Call today. Captain Dave

March and April have been breezy, keeping us fishing in pine Island Sound's protected waters. The water is real clear this year due to the lack of rain. You can walk in knee deep water and pick shells without a mask on most days. Fishing for Snook, Mackrel and now Tarpon are keeping anglers busy. If you want to stop and watch Dolphins play, see manatees cruise by or visit a nearby restaurant. Call today

December was full of good fishing days and lots of warm weather. water temperatures have been 70-76 degrees most of the month. Cold fronts to our north have mostly failed to cool Sanibel and Captiva. Snook, trout and some sheepshead have all come aboard this month. Spring break is fast approaching. Call today to book your spring break trip.
