For example we may start fishing for Spec Sea Trout early in the morning and then switch tactics and start fishing the mangrove shorelines with jigs and shrimp for Snappers or Sheepshead. The point is that we adapt to changing conditions to keep you on the fish, and its nice to catch a variety of different species on your fishing charter.

In the unlikely event that this happens we will refund your deposit in full. Frequently Asked Questions Do I Need A Florida Fishing License? NO - Your Florida fishing license is included with your charter. Should I Tip The Captain? YES - The captain works very hard to make sure you have the best day possible. How good the fishing is depends on the weather, tides, the angler's experience, etc. We depend on tips for a large part of our income. For every charter the Captain works at least 2 hours preparing for your trip and at least 2 hours of cleaning after the charter. Regardless of how the fishing was don't forget how hard we work for you. Will I Get Sea Sick? The waters we fish are generally very calm, similar to a lake. On those rare days when the wind blows hard the waves are just light lake type whitecaps. So you have no worries at all about getting sea sick. How Many People Can Go On A Light Tackle Charter? Our fishing charters are limited to a maximum of three people fishing, and there is room for one additional non-fishing passenger. If someone wants to take turns fishing, then three people can fish at one time while having four people total on the fishing charter. As you can imagine having more than three people casting lures at the same time is a bad idea for a number of reasons. How Many People Can Go On A Fly Fishing Charter? Our fly fishing chartera are limited to a maximum of two people fly fishing, and while there is room for one additional non-fishing passenger we discourage it. Its tough to be in the middle of the boat with a fly fisherman on the bow and stern. As you can imagine having more than two people fly fishing at the same time is a bad idea for a number of reasons. What Do You Supply For Our Fort Myers Fishing Charter? We provide you with high quality rods and reels, both light tackle and fly fishing. We supply all the lures, baits, and any other tackle needed for our light tackle clients, and flies and leaders for our fly fishing clients. Included is ice cold bottled water, and a large cooler with ice for your personal beverages and snacks. We have a digital SLR camera to take high resolution photos of your catch. Included is ice cold bottled water, and a large cooler with ice for your personal beverages and snacks. Feel free to bring soda or other drinks. We have plenty of room for them in the on-board cooler. Please plan on bringing your own food and snacks. What Do I Need To Bring On The Fishing Charter? At a minimum you should bring the following items: Sun screen SPF30 or higher, Polarized sunglasses, a hat or visor, a lightweight jacket in the cooler months. Please plan on bringing your own food and snacks, we have room for them in our onboard cooler Can I Bring My Own Cooler? No - We have plenty of room in our on-board cooler for your beverages. Remember that we have limited storage space and we won't have room to store your cooler. Are Shared Charters Available? No - Our customers charter us because they want a private charter where they can enjoy having the boat and the captain to themselves. This allows us to make changes to their charter if the fishing is really great and they want to stay longer. Are There Restroom Facilities? There are no restroom facilities on board the boat, but there are restrooms where we meet you. However, it only takes a couple of minutes to stop at a local marina, in addition we have access to other restrooms in the areas we fish. Can I Bring My Own Casting/Spinning Rod And Reel? We suggest that you leave your rod at home and let us provide your tackle. We supply you with the correct rod and reel combination for the fishing you will be doing. Can I Bring My Own Fly Rod And Reel? Yes you can bring your own fly rod and reel, but please remember that we will be providing you with top quality Fly Rods and Reels. If you feel the need to bring your own gear, then you will need at least a 9 foot, 9 weight rod with a floating line. For our big beach Tarpon and snook fishing charters a 12 wt rod is a must, you never know when that giant is going to come along and I hate to see clients using their own rod and loose a big fish because their rod was not heavy enough to handle the fish at a critical moment.
