Fort Myers, FL and 2 more
Here is your opportunity to fish the pristine waters of Sanibel Island and Pine Island Sound.
For light tackle, we’ll be using G. Loomis rods, Shimano and Penn reels, super-braid fishing line, DOA lures, and Rip Tide lures, to name a few or live bait if you prefer.
For fly fishing, I can provide Scott Fly Rod’s new Meridian fly rod. It will probably be the best fly rod you’ve ever thrown. This rod will add distance to your cast whatever level you’re currently at. I also use Hatch and Lamson fly reels. So you can see that I spare no expense when it comes to providing you with the best fly tackle made. I always carry more flies than we could possibly need in one fly box and “proven” flies in another box.
We'll be fishing out of my Maverick HPX-V 18. This boat is specifically designed to fish in very shallow waters away from the crowed fishing areas. This boat has zero hull slap and that allows us to get much closer to the fish without them even knowing we are there. Fish are much smarter than used to be, so every little advantage may mean the difference between success or not.
Lastly, please note- I can pick up at the South Seas Resort or the Marriot Sanibel Harbour Resort, for an additional $75 and $25, respectively (these fees are imposed by the resorts for guides to pick up their guest anywhere on the property).
Exact meeting location will be provided after booking.
