January
Tarpon, Redfish, Trout, and Snook are roaming the inshore waters, so catch as many as you can. Or head out to reefs and focus on Spanish Mackerel and other nearshore species.
February
Go after Snook and Redfish swimming near the coast or venture out a bit farther and catch some Amberjack. But it doesn't end here – there are plenty of other fish in the sea!
March
Stay inshore and target Redfish and Trout or go exploring the deeper waters offshore. There, you'll find anything from Amberjack and Jack Crevalle to King Mackerel.
April
Fishing is heating up in every part of these waters. The inshore is exploding with Tarpon, Snook, Drum, and Trout, while deeper waters are all about Barracuda, Bonito, Kingfish, and Amberjack.
May
Snook and mighty Tarpon dominate the inshore waters. Offshore, you can target a variety of A-listers, including Grouper, Amberjack, Cobia, and other trophies – catch them if you can!
June
Tarpon, Redfish, and Snook are abundant inshore. Meanwhile, you can also expect some mind-blowing action when it comes to Yellowtail, Mutton, and, most importantly, Red Snapper!
July
Hit the reefs and deeper waters for some rod-bending fishing action. It's time to catch some Snapper, Grouper, Barracuda, and Jacks. Or have an equally productive day targeting Tarpon inshore.
August
Catching Tarpon and Snook inshore has never been more fun. If you'd like to go further out, expect to encounter some Amberjack, Cobia, Barracuda, and other amazing species.
September
Redfish, Tarpon, and Drum can be caught in the skinny waters inshore – don't miss the chance to chase after them. You can also go for King and Spanish Mackerel near reefs and wrecks.
October
Stay inshore and land some brag-worthy Snook and Redfish. But it's not all about the skinny waters – set sail and go out to the Gulf for some Amberjack, Cobia, and King Mackerel.
November
The weather is getting colder, but fishing is still hot, hot, hot! Catch anything from the inshore superstars to the likes of Grouper, Amberjack, Cobia, and King Mackerel offshore.
December
December is all about heading out and focusing on some of the biggest reef and nearshore species. With some luck, catch Snapper, Grouper, Amberjack, and Jack Crevalle.

We have fished a few places in SW Florida in the past year. Englewood is a gorgeous community without the hectic feel of Naples or Ft Myers. We had fish on all day long. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting a more laid back fishing day, where you catch a lot of fish, which is more of what my family enjoys.

Try different types of fishing. On shore from beach you never know what you will catch. It is my favorite way to fish while relaxing in the sun with a drink! There are plenty of small fish along the shore for youngsters to catch using small hooks and frozen shrimp. it is non-stop action.

Only thing I was disappointed about was I didn't know that I should only have a fishing party of 4. I had 6 so we took turns fishing. It worked and captain Tim was very accomodating. We had a great time. I wish there was a way I could tell what the max fishing lines on boats are before booking.

Book a trip with Captain Ryan at Fin Crazy Charters. Also bring a few poles and fish from the beach. The snook fishing is very good. I mainly threw a 3/8 oz. jighead with a 4" grub. In the morning and evenings, the snook are extremely close to the shore. Within 5 feet of the beach. Took me awhile to figure out they were that close. Would catch 4 or 5 every morning and again in the evening and an occasional redfish as well.

Don't take a bunch of stuff on the boat. A couple of bottles of water per person, maybe a small snack. A small hand towel, sunglasses, camera and a hat. Sunscreen is a must. Leave the rest up to your Captain. Also, Captain Ryan Riegsecker, The Royal Palm Marina and Snook's Bayside Bar and Grill.

Overall great experience with Capt. Shane. We fished the topwater bite most of the morning with excellent action. He put me on my personal best Seatrout (23in) and Snook (37in) and also my very first Redfish which was definitely the highlight of the trip. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who values the use of artificial baits. We will definitely be coming back soon for some Tarpon!!

Great family fishing experience. Captain Tim was very accommodating with my elderly parents. Great attitude and energy. Took our catch to Key and Lock (about 5 minute drive) and had the fish blackened. Bent rods and smiles.

We had a good time out fishing with Captain Tim and his best mate Lily. We hooked a couple of big fish of some type but they never came up where we could see them but fought like heck before the lines broke. Caught a variety of smaller fish as well. A good time and a beautiful day of fishing. Thanks Captain!

We had a lovely day with captain Tim and Lily! The day was very windy which made the fishing tough. Tim was determined and tried several spots for us. My daughter did catch some. Even though my granddaughters did not catch anything (13 and 17) they sure enjoyed Capt. Tim's fast boat and his precious dog Lily! We will definately will book with this crew again!

Capt Dave was a great host to us fishing today. We left 20 minutes early and fished an extra 15 minutes. Caught many different fish species. Nothing big enough to keep but a lot of fish. Captain Dave was very informative about technique and information about the different species that we caught. I would definitely use Captain Dave again and recommend him to other people. Great day.

Our experience fishing with Captain Tim and his friendly companion (Lilly - yellow lab) was excellent. Even though we didn’t land the “big one”, we caught at least seven different fish types and everyone in our party caught several fish each. Captain Tim was great in finding areas where the fish were and did not hesitate to move when there were no bites. We will definitely book with Captain Tim and Lilly on future trips!
