Two fellows caught and released a huge sawfish off the beach this week!
Here’s a link to the story a bit of video:
Fort Myers Fishing Report & Charters, Sanibel & Captiva Fishing Report & Charters, and Boca Grande Tarpon Fishing Charters with Captains Joey Burnsed & Josh Schardin! We have been running fishing charters for a long time and we love it and do it well!
Please call (239) 340-8378 to book a charter.
We’re based in Fort Myers, but our boats leave from Castaways Marina on the northern tip of Sanibel Island, and ‘Tween Waters and Jensen’s Marinas on Captiva Island. All three locations are about a half hour drive from Fort Myers and are worth the drive. You are better off driving out to Sanibel and Captiva than leaving from Fort Myers and burning a ton of time on your guide trip just running out to the outer islands before you begin fishing. We’ll catch fish and the scenery is beautiful. You will want to stay on Sanibel or Captiva for your next visit.
This isn’t deep-sea fishing. It is the best and most pleasant fishing you will ever do, whether you are a beginner, a family just out for fun, or a serious fisherman or woman. We bump along, amongst, and in and out of the islands.
Most of the time we’re within casting distance of land, fishing the mangroves, or the oyster bars or the passes, but we also will go out a half to a one mile or so into the bay or gulf if we’re looking for goliath grouper, or tarpon or sharks. Even then, you won’t feel you have gone too far or that you are far from land. Your perception will be that you are much closer to land than a mile or so out. A mile is less than five minutes in the boat.
We fish, shell and sightsee Sanibel, Captiva, North Captiva, Cayo Costa, Pine Island, Cabbage Key, Useppa & Boca Grande, depending on the time of the year. Most of the time we focus on Sanibel, Captiva and North Captiva. We fish along both the bay and gulf sides.
So let’s go on a Fort Myers fishing charter – or let’s go on a Sanibel, Captiva, North Captiva or Cayo Costa Island shelling guide trip. Just give me a call and we’ll lineup a charter!
We depart from Castaways Marina, Santiva, Sanibel Island, on the bay side, just south of the Blind Pass bridge to Captiva Island. We also have a boats that leave from ‘Tween Waters and Jensen’s Marinas on Captiva, just another five or so minutes north of Castaways.
Fair winds and following seas,
Captain Joey Burnsed and first mates Charlie and Hank …
