Tarpon are one of the top of the hit list when it comes to sport fishing. The elusive silver king can be found in highest numbers in the waters of Sanibel and Captiva Islands between mid April and the end of June. However we start targeting them as early as the beginning of March.
The nearshore fishery provides a home to numerous species of gamefish and cooler fillers. When it comes to a fight that can’t be compared, Permit are one of our favorites. Their strong slim profile provides a platform for a long and powerful fight. If you want dinner species that also put up a great fight, Gag Grouper, Cobia, Mangrove Snapper, and Kingfish are the way to go!
Our inshore estuary is a great home for gamefish much as monster snook and redfish for the catch and release anglers. If you are looking to bring home dinner with the family, snapper, trout, pompano, and sheepshead are an excellent option to feed your whole crew!
