Fort Myers Beach Fishing

The abundant grass flats and giant mangrove islands are the main culprits behind a one-of-a-kind environment that made Fort Myers Beach a rich and diverse fishery that it is today. Plenty of wrecks and backcountry waters serve as a nutritious ecosystem for endless schools of game fish, giving the anglers a swim for their money virtually all year round. Everything from Snook and Reds to Tarpon and Cobia can be found and caught in the area, with regular dolphin and manatee sightings making a day on the water a perfect experience for the entire family!
