The big choice on anglers’ ”bucket” lists for Southwest Florida waters is a species of gamefish that’s notorious for delivering a great battle. These folks are in pursuit of the tarpon. Also called the “silver king,” tarpon can easily reach as heavy as 300 lbs and can reach over 8 foot in length, howbeit keep in mind that they are greatly protected and can’t be retained for harvest.

Tarpon fishing tradition dates back to the Calusa Indians, extends through the days of Pirate Jose Gaspar, onto the roaring 1900s when Barron Collier set out on developing the region. President Theodore Roosevelt toured Useppa Island, Captiva Island, and Punta Gorda to hunt for tarpon in the early 1900s. Ernest Hemingway, Herbert Hoover, Thomas Edison, Zane Grey, and Frederic Remington were also bold voyagers who were influenced by the sport of sport fishing in our Gulf waters, as were the Vanderilts, Rockerfellers and Rothschilds.

Throughout the summer expect to see these majestic fish roving the back bay waters or along the beach consuming virtually any bait in their path. Even though tarpon can be reeled and landed on rather light tackle, we provide rod and reel combos that allow you to land these treasured fish quickly. We are devoted to releasing healthy tarpon quickly because distressed tarpon are oftentimes the casualty of large sharks, particularly amid the spring and summer months.

Shelling Charters and Sightseeing Voyages

      Sanibel and her neighboring barrier cays are some of the most extreme shelling locations on the planet. Being a barrier island, Sanibel’s most uncommon characteristic is its east-west situation in the Gulf of Mexico. Sanibel’s land mass sits vertical to the mainland coast as opposed to sitting parallel to shore like nearly every other barrier island. This distinctive situation ensnares shells which are pushed north by dominant gusts and tidal motion.

      Shells become easy to find as the surface of the water recedes when north winds rush across the island. The most popular shelling times are usually December, January and February, however, summer gales often reveal enormous numbers and assortments of shells, much to our delight.

      Catch Me If U Can guides will show you remote beaches where you’ll discover the natural history of Southwest Florida and intimately investigate the sea’s mysterious secrets that ends up on our beaches. Learn for yourself the beachcombing method distinguished by the bent over posture of its participants and referred to as the “Sanibel stoop.” From corals to anemones, jellies and nettles to bivalves and shelled mollusks, each aspect of a living beach has its own tale to tell.
