Sanibel FL Offshore Fishing Charter Boats In Search Of Reef Species
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.
Sanibel Florida Shark Fishing Charters
In South Florida waters, the perfect areas for shark fishing charters are near passes and in bays and sounds. Formations like natural or man-made reefs or platforms and overpasses appeal to bait fish which in turn appeal to sharks.
Beneath our Sanibel Causeway span bridge is a great location for shark fishing. Many adventurous Catch Me If U Can Fishing Charter sportsmen and women have caught (and released) many blacknose sharks while fishing under that famous bridge. Another great place in Fort Myers is the shoals and nooks of Pine Island Sound protected behind Sanibel Island. This is an excellent site for locating young blacktip and nurse sharks.
Sanibel Island FL Tarpon Fishing Charters
An esteemed favorite on anglers’ “must catch” lists for our area is a species of gamefish that’s infamous for putting up a spectacular battle. These folks are in pursuit of the tarpon. A.K.A the “silver king,” tarpon are known to easily grow as large as 300 lbs and can reach over 8 feet in length, however keep in mind that they are greatly protected and cannot be kept for harvest.
Tarpon fishing tradition dates back to the Calusa Indians, extends through the pirate days of Jose Gaspar, onto the roaring 1900s when Barron Collier initiated developing the area. President Theodore Roosevelt frequented Useppa Island, Captiva Island, and Punta Gorda to hunt for tarpon during the early 1900s. Ernest Hemingway, Herbert Hoover, Thomas Edison, Zane Grey, and Frederic Remington were also bold voyagers who were allured by the sport of sport fishing in our waters, as were the Vanderilts, Rockerfellers and Rothschilds.
In the summer months we usually observe these beautiful fish wandering the back bay waters or along beachfronts devouring almost any bait in their path. While tarpon could be fought and landed with relatively light tackle, we furnish rod and reel combos that enable you to land these treasured fish swiftly. We concentrate on releasing healthy tarpon quickly because fatigued tarpon are often the prey of large sharks, especially during spring and summertime.
Sanibel FL Shelling Charters and Sightseeing Trips
Sanibel and its neighboring barrier isles are some of the most extreme shell hunting locations in the world. As a barrier island, Sanibel’s most uncommon characteristic is its east-west situation in the Gulf. Sanibel’s sand mass runs perpendicular to the mainland coast instead of parallel to shore like almost all other barrier islands. This distinctive situation catches shells that are shifted northward by dominant gusts and currents. Shells become easy to find as the surface of the water recedes when north gusts rush across the island. The favored shelling times are typically December, January and February, however, summer storms often reveal vast quantities and varieties of shells, much to our delight.
Our guides will whisk you away to remote beaches where you’ll learn about the natural history of Southwest Florida and closely investigate the sea’s perplexing secrets that ends up on our beaches. Learn for yourself the beachcombing technique characterized by the bent over posture of its participants and referred to as the “Sanibel stoop.” From corals to anemones, jellies and nettles to shelled mollusks and bivalves, each aspect of a living beach has its own tale to tell.
