2017 is in the books.  Looking back on the year brought some phenomenal fishing and wildlife viewing opportunities as well as new friends reconnecting with some older friends.   I’m grateful for time I’ve been able to spend with folks on the water from all walks of life from very young to some last wish trips.

After a colder and windier than normal that saw many catches of Black Drum and Sheepshead the fronts have finally slowed from a 5-7  day pattern to  7-11 day range.  In addition they are not as intense as they were.    This has lead to water  warming from the low 60’s to mid 70-‘s in just […]

After a tumultuos Summer finally after 2 storms our waters are free of red tide.  And right on schedule the fall bait run is in full swing.  Fishing this time of the year rivals spring and some say is much better. Inshore the redfish that have been scarce all summer are finally here in numbers.  […]

We  are just a few weeks away from the best time of fishing in the Everglades. I have found over my 40 years of guiding career that April and Mays fishing can be the the best for catching snook redfish tarpon trout and pompano. April and May are also my […]

One of the most extreme forms of fishing in the inshore waters of Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island is shark fishing. This type of fishing can be challenging and unpredictable which is why it's become a popular charter for those thrill seekers out there. Prime time for shark fishing is June through September when the water is the warmest. Once th...

Inshore fishing in October in the Fort Myers Beach and Sanibel Island area can most often be very productive. Nice sized bait fish have been plentiful before the sunrise but start to become more scarce once the sun comes out.This past week I've been catching smaller snook slot sized reds and snapper. I've been focusing most of my attention on insho...

The paste few weeks here in Fort Myers have been mostly cold! Not for our northerners but certainly for us Florida Crackers. There's been a few mornings (all of them) where I sit in my truck with the heater on staring out at my boat in the water knowing that I eventually have to get into it. I keep telling myself that on 3 I'll get out. After I cou...

Southwest Florida offers an array of fishing opportunities from the novice to the seasoned angler. Sanibel Island and Fort Myers exhibits great fishing year round because of the fall and spring migrations of a few warm water game fish; not to mention our year round residents. I get asked fairly often "can I fish for tarpon in December"? No because...

Irma Update! – Thanks to all for the kind thoughts and well wishes. My boat and dock are safe and sound and I will begin guiding again starting Sept 22nd. Due to the extended lack of fishing pressure I expect the action to be excellent. Everyone is anxious to get back on the water so […]

Fort Myers fishing The past week of fishing in Fort Myers has been all about the sheepshead bite. We've had a great week of weather and flat water which has allowed for us to get to some nearby wrecks. Although the bites been good in general the Sheepsheads have been the most productive. I's safe to say there's been a lot of fish put on the dinner...

Cobia Fishing in Fort Myers It's paradise and I'm just lucky to be living in it. Our snow is sand. It's messy but i'll take it any day over the cold snowy weather that our northern friends have to face. We didn't get sandy this week but I did come home smelling fishy from all the Cobia we caught on our charters. I even got pulled over for a random...

Fort Myers Redfish Charters Today was a beautiful day spent catching fish. A lot of fish. Redfish to be specific. This is such a welcomed site considering the fish kill from the red tide that plagued our coast this past summer. The past few days of fishing have been good to us. Proof that our fishery is headed in the right direction.Book your Sprin...

Fort Myers Fishing Charters Take a look at these beauties. It's just a few of the fish we've caught this week while on our charters. Pretty nice catch for some back bay shallow water fishing. These Black drum were among some nice size Cobia and Snook that we've been catching. If this weather holds up it looks like March is going to be a great month...

Fort Myers Tarpon Fishing Tarpon season has gotten off to a slow start this year. Typically they're moving up the coast in pods late March early April but they've only recently started to show up in large enough numbers to target. This past week was really windy but they didn't seem to mind and we got the fish to eat. Below are two charters that go...
