Fish Ft. Myers Beach and Sanibel Island For Snook, Redfish, Trout, Shark or Tarpon
Snook Fishing Guides
Snook are plentiful in the back bays and on the flats of Fort Myers and the Sanibel area of Florida's Gulf Coast. Snook can be picky at times making it lots easier to go Snook "fishing" than it is to go Snook "catching". Our clients always comment on how hard a snook strikes. They create a huge boil on the surface and an unmistakable "popping" sound. Snook are known to be challenging, unpredictable, and stubborn which is why I think they appeal to so many anglers.
Tarpon Fishing Charters
Hooking a Tarpon regardless of size is the thrill of a lifetime for most anglers. Combine incredible jumps with a mouth of bone and you get a fish famous for jumping off. Join us for an exciting Fort Myers Tarpon fishing charter when you visit the beaches of SW Florida. We offer a 6 or 8 hour Tarpon charter for up to 4 guests. (Seasonal Species)
Redfish are one of the most popular fish here in Fort Myers Beach & Sanibel Island when fishing with the local fishing guides, in fact many of our clients don't want to fish for anything else. When you combine powerful runs with great table fare; It's a win win situation.
Charter Fishing For Trout
These fish are not members of the trout family, but the spots on their sides certainly make them look like one. They are delicious table fare and make some drag burning runs. Trout fishing is active year 'round in the Ft. Myers area with the winter and spring months being the most active.
Shark Fishing Charters
Regardless of their reputation sharks are a great game fish, and Fort Myers has plenty of the big ones! They are fun to catch, ready biters, and they fight like crazy!
