The highly experienced Captain Daniel Muench will take you under his wing, and he’ll show you all the tricks and tips to get the right catch.

Explore the area on boar the Maveric, falts boat model from 2015. It is 18’ and it can accommodate 2 guests per trip, so it’s perfect for couples or fishing with your best bud.

This charter specializes in river fishing with inshore and nearshore areas of Sanibel Island, along with flats and backcountry locations. The fish bites throughout the entire year, with a slightly slower season from December till February. You can go after Redfish, Sheepshead, and Mangrove Snapper, just to name a few. The fishing techniques at your disposal include light tackle, spinning, and flyfishing.

You just need to show up, as the trip covers your Florida fishing license, and all the necessary fishing gear and lures. Bait is available depending on your skill level. The crew offers bottled water as refreshments. If you get lucky you can keep the catch, and if you ask them to, the crew will help you with cleaning. In this case, a tip would be appreciated. Families with children are welcome.

I have always loved to fish since I was very young. I was fishing any pond or creek I could find. My grandfather started an RV park on Sanibel in the late '60s which is still there and operating today. We visited here all my life while growing up and I finally moved here permanently in 1991. Even though I have been fishing in the Sanibel area for over 30 years, I still get excited when I catch a nice fish! Snook, Redfish, Trout, and Triple Tail are my favorites.
