Captain
Robert Reed

Member since April 2015 Fort Myers, United States
Background
Capt. Robert Reed has more than 20 Professional full time years as a fishing guide in South West Florida. He has done several T.V. shows and has taught shallow water angling and fly casting techniques at dozens of venues abroad teaching experienced anglers and educating newcomers what he’s learned over the years. The waterways he guides in include Pine Island Sound, Charlotte harbor, BocaGrande, Captiva Island, Sanibel Island, Fort Myers, and Cape Coral.
Techniques
I specialize in light tackle spin fishing on the near shore and back-country bay waters of South West Florida. I invite anglers and families with kids to come enjoy a day of world-class fishing, sightseeing, or shelling on the pristine waters off Sanibel, Captiva and nearby barrier islands. Whether you’re an experienced angler looking for a challenge of a family who just wants to spend a day on the water shelling and taking in the sights. I will be able to provide an excellent experience best suited for your individual or family’s needs.
