Step aboard a Snook fishing charter in Fort Myers and discover a whole new world of inshore fishing. The brackish waters of the Caloosahatchee River are overflowing with Snook and scores of keen anglers going for that prized catch. Come and see for yourself, and you’ll be rushing to get back on the water to go again!

What to Expect

Snook are known all over the world for their game and taste qualities. Due to their reliance on warm waters, their harvesting seasons are restricted. Fear not, though, because a day fishing for Snook in Fort Myers will be full of thrills – no matter if you keep your catch or not.
 
A very spooky fish, Snook provides a challenge for any angler. Experienced anglers will relish the chance to spend six or eight hours battling it out with these strong fish, while beginners may prefer a half day trip. You can even take advantage of night fishing under the dock lights, giving you a better chance of catching your prey by surprise. 
 
Aboard a shallow-hulled boat, you’ll gently navigate the shallows, doing your utmost to keep your fish none the wiser. An aggressive feeder, it will take the bait but immediately try to make its way off the end of your line. Get ready for an intense battle to hook one aboard!

How to Prepare

As they prefer warm waters, your best bet of fishing for Snook comes in summer. Thanks to the warm climate in Fort Myers, you can go after Snook anytime from late March to early November. 
 
You’ll find everything you need for a productive day aboard, including rods, reels, and bait. Your captain will give a helping hand to any first-timers, while the more experienced among you can take the reins and start casting right away. 
 
Bring some drinks and snacks aboard, and get ready to experience some of the best light tackle action around. A Fort Myers Snook fishing charter is waiting to take you away!

Watch the weather patterns and try to get a few warm days in a row to make the snook more active. Still early forTarpon and the normally reliable sea trout are still recovering from the red tide last year so maybe next year might be better it you prefer that species. We had a great time catching lady fish when the water temps dipped and put the snook off their feed. Be prepared for some wind this time of year.

Try the inland fishing in the shallows to site fish along the Mangroves, you never know what may be leaving in the shadows of each cast.

Fishing is fishing--sometimes you have a good day and sometimes you enjoy the view. In our case we had a lot of action but the fish were just short of keepers. But it was a nice day.

It's a transitional time of the year and water temps really affect the species and size of fish. Not to worry though, there are lots of fish but maybe not necessarily lunkers.

With the right guide, catching big fish can be affordable. Snook and jack fish put up a really good fight
