Join Reel1In for an amazing day of fishing along the mangrove estuaries. Start out of Fort Myers Beach, Florida and fish the back bays, oyster beds, mangrove shorelines, passes, and docks for a wide variety of fish. These trips are best suited for small parties under four people when fishing from the flats boat. You’ll have an excellent choice of inshore, river, flats, and backcountry destinations to go to. Whether you desire to fish for fun or have an experience of a lifetime, Reel1In will carefully plan your trip accordingly.

The adventure starts on a 20’ Lake And Bay flats boat. It can sit up to 4 guests and runs on a 250 HP Yamaha engine. It’s got quality navigation gear to keep you on the course all the time. It uses a wireless trolling motor for a quieter approach and is equipped with a livewell and an ice-box. Snorkeling equipment will be available on your request. On offshore boats, there will be a first mate as well to give you any assistance you might need.

Some of the diverse fish species you can catch include Mangrove Snapper, Spotted Seatrout, Great Barracuda, Tarpon, Permit, Black Drum, and more. The choice of styles you can fish in is also excellent. Using light tackle, you can try your skills in bottom fishing, trolling, spinning, jigging, popping, as well as fly fishing. Kids are more than welcome to come aboard, so why not bring the whole family and have a wonderful time together in nature. Reel1In primarily follows catch and release policy, but make sure you call them and check for details. There will be no smoking and alcohol drinking during the trip, but you’re free to drink beer or wine.

You are covered for all the fishing gear, bait, licenses, as well as for water. The crew will clean and fillet you catch so it’s ready for cooking as soon as you get back home.

Come to Fort Myers Beach and let Reel1In take you on a fishing trip to remember.
