Made up of mangroves, shallow flats, inland canals teeming with fish, as well as productive reefs and wrecks, you’ll find everything an avid fisherman needs.

January

With colder waters, inshore fish are gathering in deeper holes and channels in the back bays – a lot of species are available in a small area. Spotted Seatrout, Pompano, Redfish, and Black Drum are just a few on offer.

February

The weather can be changeable. This makes flexibility key, with a lot on offer for those in the know. As well as Sheepshead, Mangrove Snapper, and Trout, warm-water species like Snook and Redfish appear.

March

The days start to get longer and strong east winds keep the water clean and clear. Tarpon starts to come into the coves, flats, and backcountry, and Snook starts to migrate to the passes. Trout is consistently good on the grass flats.

April

Warmer weather starts to settle in, with water temperatures in the 70s. This is a transition month, so the weather can be unpredictable. Get it right, and you'll have great fishing for Snook, Redfish, Tarpon, and Shark.

May

May sees large numbers of Snook getting ready to spawn around the shoreline and passes. Tarpon fishing is excellent in the early morning and late evening. The weather is warm and reliable this time of year.

June

This is the peak time to sight fish for Snook, catching and releasing as per regulations. Tarpon fishing is good off the beaches and Sharks are caught in the shallow bays and nearshore.

July

Early morning and late evening fishing remains the best option, with large numbers of Snook still congregating in the passes to spawn. You can also find exciting Shark fishing in the bays.

August

Temperatures are very high in the daytime, so most fishing is limited to early morning and evenings. Offshore, seas are calm. This can be a good opportunity to put meat in the freezer – Kingfish, Snapper, and Grouper are biting well.

September

Hurricanes can potentially disrupt fishing as the weather starts to transition towards the fall. Nearshore, you will find King and Spanish Mackerel biting well, with large Bull Reds also in the cards.

October

Water temperatures cool considerably, making the all-day bite better than it was in previous months. Fish start to move into the back bays and passes. The Redfish bite is on fire in October.

November

Speckled Trout migrate into the back bays and are caught in good numbers over shallow patchy grass areas. You can find Bluefish and Pompano in the same spots. King and Spanish Mackerel are around nearshore.

December

This is Southwest Florida's busiest time of year, with comfortable temperatures throughout the day and good fishing for Snook, Trout, Redfish, Pompano, and Jack inshore. Offshore, there are Kingfish, Snapper, and Grouper.

Definitely go with a guide. I am an avid fisherman in the upper Midwest but i learned a lot from the Captain about bait selection, rigging, techniques, and tides, that i wouldn't have know how to navigate on my own. It is an investment but pays off dividends with knowledge you receive.

Absolutely, it was my first trip. And the fish were fileted and cleaned so that they would be ready to cook for dinner that evening.

I was told that the fishing was better a little later in the season when the water is warmer, so I would recommend first time anglers book in April or May.

Choose a vessel and trip length appropriate for your angling skills and experience, endurance, affordability, and time available. Don't expect big game on a half day trip on a big boat, and conversely don't expect comfort on a small but fast open fisherman. Most importantly, talk to your captain....tell him or her what you expect, and they'll tell you what experience they can provide.

Find a reputable & experienced company to charter your trip. Don’t set your expectations too high, fish are unpredictable. Book a full day trip, this will get you further out in the ocean where the bigger fish are at.

Pack lots of sunscreen, take a hat, and be prepared for a workout. Pick a fast boat if you want bigger fish, it takes time to get out there.

While the fish tend to gather near mangrove roots, you may want to practice your casting in open waters to get a better sense of how far your line will travel. It is relatively easy to overcast and snag your hook and line on the mangrove roots and have to put on a new hook when you break the line to get untangled. Also, bring someone that really enjoys fishing along with you.

Captain got us on the fish fast and when we asked for bigger he delivered. Great time on the boat and he was just as excited and disappointed as we were if we caught one or one got away. Overall an Awesome experience for some good old boys from WY.

My family and I had a great trip with Captain Robbie. He was very knowledgeable of the fishing spots, never stopped working (changing for fresh bait/getting lines in the right spots) and was incredibly patient with my 9 year old. Will definitely book with Captain Robbie again. Thanks for a great time today.

We left the dock on time and were landing fish within 15 minutes. Paul was very knowledgeable and informative on the trip, and had tons of patience with us. We caught several different species of fish and we decided to keep a few. If the bites slowed down we moved to another spot and and started catching fish again! When we arrived back at the dock Captain Paul cleaned all the fish for us. Can't go wrong with Captain Paul!

Had an awesome time with Robbie. Was told that the fishing might not be so great because the weather, but he was still able to put us on some really nice fish. We hooked up with a few good sized snook and caught some other really cool species as well. Will definitely be back on a nicer day to do some deep water fishing with the captain!

Was a good trip. Fishing rods are spinning reels in good quality, braided line with mono leaders. Fished on fresh shrimp. Got 3 species, one of the being an amazing eating fish - spotted sea trout. Fished in the everglade canals and edge of the gulf. Captain was polite and friendly. Would recommend.

Capt Joe was recommended by a pro Bass fisherman and boy did he deliver! Was on the snapper right away and they kept biting all day. Boat was exceptionally clean, had an onboard lav and the first mate was constantly on it for every catch, rebating and all were perfectly cordial and conversation was fun and informative. The weather was beautiful and the waves small. Just a great day and I will be back!
