Calusa Fishing Adventures

Estero Boulevard
Fort Myers Beach FL, United States

Calusa Fishing Adventures invites you to experience first class inshore fishing in Fort Myers Beach, Florida. The charter is owned and operated by Captain Mark Yimin who has lived in the Southwest Florida almost his entire life. Shortly after moving to Florida, he started fishing for Bass in a pond, and he loved it so much, he became a professional fishing guide.

Captain Mark specializes in inshore fishing for Snook, Redfish, Trout, as well as Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, and the Silver King - Tarpon. He uses light tackle and spinning techniques to target the fish, and if you’ve never fishing before worry not - Mark will teach you anything you need to know. He is very child-friendly and takes his time to teach his guests about the area, tackle selection, and even fishing knots!

Fishing is done aboard a 23’ Parker Bay boat, originally built in 1998 and restored in 2016. Powered by a 150 HP Yamaha Four Stroke engine, with a maximum cruising speed of 40 knots, this boat slices through the shallow waters and gets you to the fishing destination quickly. It features a GPS and a fishfinder used to locate the best spots, adult and child-sizes life jackets, a livewell for the bait, and an icebox for the catch.

Captain Mark is always up hours before he picks his guest as he wants to make sure he has fresh live bait for the day. Mark also provides lures, rods, reels, tackle, fishing licenses for everyone on board, and a cleaning and filleting service. You will also have drinks on board for refreshment, and you are welcome to bring snacks and food for the day.
