If you're looking for a fishing charter in the Ft Myers area then you have come to the right place. All of my fishing charters in Fort Myers, Pine Island, Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor are No Fish! No Pay! Which means that if you don't catch a game fish then there will is no charge for the trip. That includes hooking a tarpon on any 10hr or all-day tarpon fishing charter. 6hr tarpon fishing charters do not apply for the No Tarpon No Pay Guarantee.
I'm Capt. Scott Hughes. I guide fishing charters in Pine Island Sound, Matlacha Pass and Charlotte Harbor for anglers of all skill levels. Some of the best fishing in southwest Florida is within a short drive of Ft Myers and the surrounding communities. I have pick-up locations near Ft Myers, Cape Coral, Naples, Marco Island, Sanibel Island, Captiva island, Upper Captiva Island and Punta Gorda. The main locations for launching our Fort Myers fishing charter is Burnt Store Marina, Pine Island, Boca Grande and Ft Myers (Punta Rassa).
Most of the inshore fishing charters around the Ft Myers area are flats fishing charters inside Charlotte Harbor or Pine Island Sound for snook, redfish, and spotted seatrout with a run up to a few miles offshore for certain species like tarpon, mackerel and sharks. The flats fishing charters tend to strive for a "Backcountry Slam" which consists of catching all three most popular game fish (snook, redfish and trout) in Southwest Florida in a single day of fishing. Snook, redfish and speckled trout are available through out most of the year and are fairly easy to catch with live bait for the moderately skilled angler. For a little more of a challenge, artificial lures provide a lot of fishing fun. Winter months are more geared toward artificial lure fishing since live sardines are scarce and the fish are more aggressive due to lack of their favorite food source. For anglers with world class sport fishing in mind, we have the largest population resident and migratory tarpon in the United States.
This King Mackerel was caught on one of my fishing charters near Captiva and Sanibel Islands.
Right now the flats fishing around Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Matlacha and Pine Island is excellent. We are catching a lot of redfish and speckled trout. Piompano and flounder are also helping keep the action steady.(1-31-2012). Check out the Fishing Report for details on the current fishing conditions. Below are a few current photos of flats fishing trips near Cape Coral, Fort Myers and Punta Gorda, Florida.
