Caloosahatchee freshwater releases still a huge near-term and long-term problem.  Extremely frustrating.  We need wholesale changes in the Florida state government.  It is not a Republican or Democrat issue – it is a Big Sugar control everyone issue.  It is stunning how we continue to let the sugar industry and the agriculture north of Lake Okeechobee to damage the water and all of Florida.

Sanibel Island Fishing Charters

We fish out of Blind Pass, Sanibel Island: Blind Pass is one of the best-kept secrets in Southwest Florida, a rare jewel that is open to anyone lucky enough to live or be visiting near the barrier reef islands of Captiva and Sanibel. Until recently,

Blind Pass was a naturally occurring channel of water that separated the two islands. Because it connects the bay with the Gulf, Blind Pass is one of the best shelling spots in Florida. Its waters yield seashells that inhabit both the bay and gulf in one consolidated location.

After a fierce storm, Turner Beach, the beach adjoining the Pass, is frequently covered with a bounty of shells from Olives to Fighting Whelks to the more common Conchs. The fishing is also renowned for sharks in the summer, tailing redfish on the bayside flats and snook under and off the Blind Pass bridge. Because Turner Beach faces Westward, the sunsets are spectacular and a popular viewing point for residents and visitors alike.

We’re big advocates of catch and release, particularly for snook and redfish, but pretty much for most species. Only take what you are going to eat, and a lot of fish are better off as sport fish, even if they are in season. Our motto is let ’em get bigger and catch ’em again!
