Night Shark Trips (Capt’s Specialty)

Come fish for some of the area’s largest game species with the added thrill of the night time pursuit. Shark fishing at night is by far the most productive time to pursue these powerful animals. Shark species include but are not limited to Hammerhead (multiple species), Bull, Lemon, Blacktip, Spinner, Tiger, Nurse, and others. We have even caught Sawfish up to 13ft long.

 

Goliath Grouper Excursion

Come fish with me in pursuit of one of the largest fish in local waters. Goliath grouper can reach lengths of 8 ft and obtain weights exceeding 500lbs. A photo with a Goliath Grouper makes excellent bragging rights and a story to tell for ages. This however, is reserved only for fit individuals. It is tough on the gear and the angler.

 

 Eco-Tours / Sunset Cruise / Shelling Trips

Whether it is a private sunset cruise with a bottle of Champagne watching Dolphins or an Eco tour of the wonderful diverse watershed that is Estero Bay. I can also navigate you to some local barrier islands with great shelling opportunities to add to your collection. Have something special in mind? Just ask!
