When people think of sharks, they picture “JAWS”. When WE picture sharks, we picture you with a trophy of a lifetime!
Sharks are one of the few species that have not changed much from the prehistoric days. We give everyone the opportunity to go to battle against these “top of the food chain” predators! You can target the Great Hammerhead shark (a fish that weighs over 1,000 pounds), the man eating Bull shark, the Lemon shark, and the acrobatic Black Tip Shark. Any of these sharks will give you a thrill of a lifetime! We fish in the shallow, pristine waters of Pine Island Sound near Ft. Myers, Sanibel Island, Captiva Island, and Boca Grande Pass.

Best Months: MAR-OCT

Price: $400-$800 *Depends on # of people, length of trip, and month of year

Tarpon The Silver King

The only thing more exciting than stalking fish on the flats is stalking fish that are 7 plus feet in length and weighing up to 225 lbs. Here on the flats these fish can be found in less than 3 feet of water.
Tarpon will start showing up anywhere from mid March to April, depending on the cold fronts. This is the time when thousands of fish make their way from the south as they come up to the spawning grounds, taking place mid May and June, both on new and full moons and during high tides. At these times, these fish can be caught by fly or the primary bait (pass crabs) that flush out on out-going tide with the tarpon.

Best Months: FEB-SEPT

Price: $400-$800 *Depends on # of people, length of trip, and month of year

Fishin’ the Flats

The backcountry of SW Florida is world-renowned for its sportfishing. Here, anglers will combine their hunting and fishing skills as there is nothing better than presenting artificial bait, whether it’s a fly, spoon, jig, or plastic. There is no greater thrill than sneaking up on a tailing redfish, the elusive snook, or sea trout. Near shore, permit, cobia, and tripletail inhabit the trap lines.

Best Months: Year round

Price: $400-$800 *Depends on # of people, length of trip, and month of year

Backcountry Scenery

The perfect way to experience all the beauty of Florida’s most pristine estuaries and waterways! Be sure to bring your camera and video recorder to capture majestic creatures such as dolphins, manatees, and sea turtles. Also, don’t forget about the sky! Shorebirds, Ospreys, Eagles, Spoonbills, Pelicans, and Herons are seen almost every day. This trip includes a stop at Cayo Costa, Pine Island Sound’s premiere coastal beach chock full of seashells you can gather as a keepsake. If you enjoy shelling, sightseeing, and photography, and rather leave the fishing for another time, this trip is for you!

Best Months: Year round

Price: $200 + *Depends on # of people, length of trip, and month of year
