Catch Me If U Can Fishing Charters

Catch Me If U Can caters to avid anglers in Fort Myers, Sanibel Island, and the surrounding areas. Captain Tadem is committed to helping you experience an exciting day out on the waterways which surround the barrier islands. Snook, Tarpon, and Redfish are certainly the angler’s choice in these waters. Specialty Tarpon trips are available for all Silver King lovers.

‘Catch Me If U Can’ is a 24’ Morgan center console fresh on the water in 2011, equipped with a host of Simrad navigational electronics, such as GPS, radio, and Fishfinder. The vessel has a maximum capacity of 6 persons and sports a 10’ beam that allows it to float unobstructed in down to 10 inches of water. The Morgan sports a full tower, often necessary for scouting fish and effective sight casting, and offers shade, storage, as well as extra space on board.

Apart from fishing trips, Catch Me If You Can diversifies into various other water-based and boating activities, including wildlife sightseeing and shell hunting trips off the coasts of Fort Myers and Sanibel Island, as well as Captiva Island and Fort Myers Beach.

All fishing gear is provided, including custom-built rods by Quantum, live bait and lures, complete with an ice-box for the day’s catch. Bottled water is also provided and customers are free to bring their own choice of beverages, as well as food. Fishing licenses for all anglers are covered by the charter operator and the captain is glad to help clean and filet your fish after your trip.

Depending on your fishing preferences and the amount of time you have on your hands, there are fishing packages lasting anywhere from 3 to 8 hours. Full day trips usually see you stopping at a waterfront restaurant as well. No minimum age for kids, so make sure to bring your little ones along.
