Sanibel and Captiva Sizzle

The Summer fishing is about working with nature. The hot steamy months of summer have the water temperature in the high 80's. Afternoon showers are a daily cooling for the waters near Sanibel Island. Fresh water from rain and big Lake O have turned the water brown and green. There is a Red Tide bloom that has stayed mostly north of us. Pockets of the red tide have killed fish and our bait. Fishing has been good for Sea Trout, Spanish Mackrel, and Mangrove Snapper. Start early and Finish early to beat the heat. Picture is me in the pool with my Grandson. His first trip in the pool.

May Fishing near Sanibel is right on track. Today is day three or passing showers from a tropical low. The rain is welcome, dry conditions for months have increased the fire risk for our area. The water has gotten clear from the lack of rain making for some fun days riding in the tower. Last week I rode thru Captiva pass and I could easily make out the limestone ledges. The water was 12-18 feet deep. I'm doing a little fishing off the beach on nice days catching snappers, Mackrel and a occasional triple tail. Next month I will be looking for Gag grouper. On the inside the trout are still biting as well as snook. Call me to book a trip and get out on the water!. Captain Dave

Spring break at Sanibel

Thank you to all the visiting fisher families that have filled up my calendar this year. The wind has blown and the fish have been biting. My best times are watching families catch fish, watch Dolphins play and Eagles soar. I have openings in April!. call to book your adventure.
