Sanibel & Captiva Islands Fishing Report ~ Black bear on Sanibel Sited in Residential Areas

6-30-11-Black-Bear @ Ding Darling, Sanibel & Captiva Fishing Charters.

The bear is back!

In the last day or two, the juvenile black bear that has been observed at various conservation lands on Sanibel Island since July 2011 has recently been frequenting residential areas between Causeway Road and Dixie Beach Road.

Be careful of the bear … but don’t let that scare you off.  There are still all the fun things to do down here and our bear won’t bother you!

Come on – let’s go fishing – or let’s go shelling.  Just give me a call and we’ll lineup a charter!

Fair winds and following seas,
