FlatsFish’r Charters - Sanibel

Causeway Rd
Sanibel FL, United States

Captain Blake provides guided inshore fishing trips to all anglers, regardless of whether they’ve been fishing for as long as him, or are just starting out.

Blake’s boat is a 17 footer, outfitted with navigational electronics such as GPS and Fishfinder, with enough room to take 3 anglers fishing with him. Although he specializes in fly and conventional spin fishing, particularly sight casting for Snook, Captain Blake also offers a variety of other water-based activities, such as wildlife tours, lunch cruises, shelling excursions or just a mix of sightseeing and relaxing on a private beach. Feel free to inquire for more details.

As for fishing, Captain Blake tackles the backcountry waters of the Island of Sanibel, Captiva, Fort Myers and Pine Island Sound. His common targets include game fish that Southwest Florida is famous for, such as Snook, Redfish, Sea Trout, the Silver King (Tarpon), and many others that make fishing in these waters a year-round event.

Captain Blake provides tackle for both the conventional spin fishing, as well as fly fishing. Live bait and lures are included in the price, as is cleaning and bagging your catch following the fishing trip. Cold bottled water is also included, and guests are free to bring their own drinks. Fishing licenses are taken care of by the Captain for all his passengers.

Half-day trip with Captain Mike.  My kids had a great time with Captain Mike fishing for a half-day. They caught lots of fish. He was patient and kind. They had a wonderful trip

Great day out fishing!  Captain Blake was awesome and took the time to teach my son how to fish with the current.  Caught lots of fish and a variety. Definitely a great time!
