Just Livin The Dream Charters 2

Join Just Livin The Dream Charters for an unforgettable Fort Myers fishing experience for anglers of all ages. If you want to have something different during your next Southwest Florida holiday, you have found the right company!

Captains Christy Littlejohn and Kurt Elwood specialize in drift fishing and can take up to 6 anglers fishing. This style is ideal for those who have never held a fishing rod in their hands and want to take it slowly, as well as for introducing kids to the art of fishing.

All you have to do is to step aboard their 22’ Fishing Pontoon powered by a 150 HP Yamaha and an additional trolling motor. The boat will take you to the calm backwaters of the bay and through the most alluring places to admire the local wildlife. The vessel has a small bathroom on board and enough room for up to 6 guests. It’s also fitted with GPS, fish finder, a VHF radio, and it features a power pole.

Just Livin The Dream Charters will take you fishing with live bait for a variety of species that call the waters of Estero Bay and surrounding areas home. Go for Spanish Mackerel, Speckled Trout, Snook, Mangrove Snapper, Redfish, Jack Crevalle, Sheepshead, Bluefish, Pompano, and Black Drum, and more. Just drift along the shore and relax in between the bites.

But it’s not all about the fishing. Take a cruise, enjoy southwest Florida’s sunset, sip your favorite drink, and relax with your friends and family. Otherwise, share the waters with manatees and dolphins when cruising the area in the morning.

You will be provided with all you need to make a great trip possible, including quality gear tackle, bait, and license. When you return to the shore, your catch will be cleaned and ready to become your dinner when you return home. The captain will provide you with a cooler with ice, so feel free to bring your own snacks, drinks, and beer with you. If you feel the captain and the crew have exceeded your expectations, gratuity is typically 20% of the trip cost.
