Home to more canals than anywhere else in the world, this Florida city is famous for its 400 miles of waterways and stunning scenery. In Cape Coral, fishing charters ready to take you on a great ride can be found with ease. With the Caloosahatchee River on one side and the Matlacha Pass on the other, freshwater and saltwater anglers alike will find everything they long for!

Largemouth Bass, Bluegill, and Tilapia are great freshwater targets, as well as Carp and Alligator Gar. The numerous brackish canals running through the city are frequented by Tarpon, Catfish, Snook, and Redfish. Enjoy your day on the reefs targeting Snapper and Grouper, or keep going and the Gulf of Mexico will greet you with a myriad of opportunities! You’ll be battling some famous offshore species like Mahi Mahi, Amberjack, King Mackerel, and Cobia.

A half day trip is a great introduction to what the area has to offer, and booking a full day trip will maximize your chances of filling your bags. If you’re planning on heading further out from the shore, it’s best to book a full day or longer trip to make sure you have enough time to cover the grounds and have a good time.

Depending on what you’re up for, you’ll find a variety of fishing charters ready to cater to your needs. Up north, you’ll find great fresh and brackish water action, and the majority of saltwater charters depart from the docks on Caloosahatchee River, as well as Matlacha Pass. No matter where you go in Cape Coral, you can’t go wrong!

Rules & Regulations

Everyone fishing the waters of Cape Coral is required to have a license – freshwater or saltwater, depending on the canal. However, if you’re heading out with a registered guide on a charter boat, the licenses will be taken care of for you.

January

Cape Coral is a hotspot for snowbirds, and with its relatively warm winter temperatures, it's easy to see why. Trout and Redfish are biting well on the flats. Otherwise, test your strength against a Goliath Grouper in the backcountry.

February

February is one of the coldest months of the year, and a lot of fresh and saltwater favorites will make the most of the warmer waters in Cape Coral's extensive canal system. Look for Snook, Sheepshead, and Largemouth Bass.

March

As the waters warm up, nearshore and offshore fishing improves. Cobia follow the current northwards past the local reefs and can be great fun to catch. Red Grouper move closer in and can be caught on full day trips.

April

Head to Fort Myers Beach and the back bays to catch the influx of Tarpon, which becomes the talk of the town. Hungry Snook, Trout, and Redfish emerge from their winter hideouts and cause mayhem in the backcountry and flats.

May

Tarpon fishing gets even better as they move northwards towards Boca Grande Pass. Watch out as anglers jostle to catch a Silver King 24/7. The local artificial reefs are bustling with Kingfish, Cobia, and Permit.

June

Temperatures get very hot during the day, and both fish and people tend to run for cover. Look for fish in the colder waters by creek mouths or head out to the flats to target Sharks. Offshore, the Snapper and Grouper bite is excellent.

July

This is the rainy season, and afternoon showers can come and go quickly but intensely. The best fishing is in the early morning when fish gather around jetties and piers. The offshore bottom fish bite remains very good. 

August

The fish can be lethargic in hot shallow water. Look for Snook on the flats as they travel towards the backcountry lakes, or try night fishing around deep channels and bridges in the Caloosahatchee River. Bottom fishing is good offshore.

September

September is the end of the rainy season in Southwest Florida, but there is a risk of hurricanes. The water temperatures are still hot, but cold fronts may start to appear. Look out for Redfish spawning at the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River. 

October

October is a transition month for fishing in Cape Coral. As the temperatures drop, Redfishing picks up. The tides are low, making flats fishing extra rewarding. At the end of the day, visit Florida's largest Oktoberfest.

November

The weather settles into its fall patterns. Cobia are migrating southwards back down the coastline, and Tarpon fishing comes to a close with the cold fronts. The Redfish bite is extremely good in the backcountry and flats.

December

This is a good time for inshore fishing – the waters are clear and January's cold fronts have not yet arrived. Catch Snook and Redfish if it's warm and big Trout if it's not. Get in the festive spirit at the Christmas Boat Parade.

Fishing Booker is a great place to start. Read the reviews...make sure they are recent. Do some research of what's in season (if you want dinner!) And pick one and go with it...! You will most likely get a knowledgeable Capt. with great fishing experience. Cheers!

Captain knows the spots and taught my kids how to up their game when fishing. I was a true please. We fished on Jun 22. Morning fishing trip. It was getting hot. Captain offered to stay out and fish longer than we chartered. But the kids had caught so many fish they were ready to go back in. Great memories made!

This type of fishing is not real difficult. If you're a regular fisherman, use the lowest cost guide as possible to get to know the waters and rent a boat the rest of the week. This is easy fishing and not too challenging to figure out. Spending a full day on the water would get too long.
Very good

Captain Mike was an amazing guide, both extremely knowledgeable and professional. He started off our morning off by cast netting and checking his traps for all of our bait. Then proceeded to bring us to multiple spots, each one producing multiple catches. Afterwards fileted our bounty of fish. We would absolutely recommend Capt Mike if your looking for a 10 STAR fishing experience. Thanks Mike for top notch day.

I booked this trip for my husband and his friend. They went yesterday and had the time of their lives. Mike worked hard to help them find fish, taught them a TON about fishing, they caught MANY fish and brought a good amount home to me. They are still talking this morning about what a good time they had. We will definitely book with Mike again!

Phenomenal!!! I’ve booked charters before and you never know what you’re going to get with your guide/Captain. Took my 12 year old son who wanted to catch some fish. John took us to multiple spots and we caught fish each time. From beautiful reds to an outstanding grouper. Exceeded every expectation. John was outgoing, friendly and very knowledgeable. Will definitely be back. Thanks John!!

Mike made the day perfect. He is knowledgeable, personable, and fun. He put us on some sweet spots and we caught a wide range of fish: snook, redfish, snapper, and grouper (pictured). Book with confidence. I couldn’t have dreamt a better day out there, catching fish pretty much all day long with Mike confidently at the helm.
