While the coastal area of SW Florida is full of offshore fishing charters, there are some critical characteristics that make us different from our competitors in Sanibel. Our clients need an experienced, trusted and well-known Sanibel Island Florida Charter Fishing Company who cares about their wishes and who treats fishing charter clients as if they were their own family.

Captain Tadem has built a reputation on sight casting permit offshore. He loves the thrill of the chase and there is nothing like seeing a school of permit tailing in deep water. These amazing creatures have amazing eyesight so we use light tackle and long leaders to ensure they eat our baits.

On top of chasing world class permit offshore, we also bottom fish for big gag grouper, sight cast Cobia off the surface, and chum up the snapper and kingfish into a frenzy. 

Should you need ideas, Captain Tadem Stewart can start you off. We do business with a large number of Southwest Florida visitors with a wide variety of recreation packages. No group comes back to shore without having experienced an exhilarating time on the waters off of Fort Myers, Sanibel Island and Captiva Island (NOAA’s Florida Gulf Coast Chart No. 11427 (Fort Myers to Charlotte Harbor and Wiggins Pass). Consider us as your personal adventure planner. We’ll take care of all the details.

We have the top Sanibel deep sea fishing charter reviews on Trip Advisor, Yelp, and Fishing Booker. Reading reviews is imperative when planning trips and hiring adventure services. Our great feedback emphasize the worth of our outstanding reputation for winning customer satisfaction.

Some of our adventurous Offshore Fishing Charter clients wish to cruise further west into the Gulf to hunt for reef and deep sea species. The Fort Myers area has over 200 offshore reefs deployed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and Fort Myers Lee County. There are several shallow-water man-made reefs in close proximity of our shores where we often find some wonderful edible fish like mangrove snapper, sheepshead, or maybe a cobia.

We usually see small grouper close to shore, particularly in summertime, but expect most of your catch to be smaller reef fish. Roving aquatics like Spanish mackerel will occupy the reefs before summer and just after fall, as well as pompano and yellowtail.

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.
