Fishing in Sanibel
Saturated with miles of quiet, shell-laden beaches, impressive wildlife variety and legendary tales of pirates and uncharted treasures, Sanibel is a staple Florida fishery with personality to spare. The inshore waterways support one of the healthiest Redfish habitats in all of Sunshine state, with hungry schools of tailing Reds awaiting that perfect sight cast of yours. Local Seatrout population has surged in the recent years, while the lush oyster bars and mangrove shorelines provide an ideal backdrop for a year-round Snook fishery. And seeing how they’ve named an entire bay after it, it’s pretty redundant to talk just how productive the Tarpon migrations can get. The native wildlife is more than happy to join in on the action too, so don’t be surprised if curious porpoises show up circling the boat, hoping to charm you into sharing your freshly-boated lunch. On the other hand, the offshore reefs and wrecks of the Gulf abound with tasty and reel-screaming game fish alike, including King Mackerel, Barracuda, Cobia, Hogfish, Permit and all kinds of Grouper, Snapper and Shark species. Oh, and thousands of unaccounted sunken pirate chests. So maybe bring an extra-heavy rod just in case?
