“ My father and I went on a full day trip with Capt Mark, The weather wasn't amazing and there were 4-5ft seas all day. We had an amazing day nevertheless catching 4 grouper, 2 monster blacken tuna and plenty of bonita in between. Capt Mark was great and put us on the fish. Would recommend them to anyone!”

BEST FISHING SEASONS IN FORT MYERS
Enjoy southern Florida’s mild winters on a January fishing trip in Fort Myers. Look for Trout and Redfish on the open flats and backcountry. Stone Crab season opens, inviting Tripletail around the marker buoys for a great light tackle fight.
Trout fishing remains very good, with Snook becoming more active towards the end of the month. The local reefs are home to tasty Sheepshead, giant Black Drum, and Gator Trout.
March in Fort Myers is a transitional month. Cobia start to appear around the local reefs, Permit can be found, and Red Grouper are caught offshore. Watch out for Spring Break crowds and windy weather.
April sees the gradual beginning of the Tarpon season, as the Silver King starts to move to the back bays and Fort Myers Beach. There is great topwater action on the flats and backcountry, with Gag Grouper, Cobia, and Permit nearshore.
Tarpon fishing really starts to heat up, with large schools congregating in about 20 ft of water about one to three miles from the coast. Snook gather on the beaches. This month is all about variety with great action nearshore too.
The weather starts to get hot and the rainy season sets in until September. Mid-day fishing concentrates on colder waters by creek mouths or targeting Sharks on the flats. Offshore, Snapper, Grouper, and Cobia are biting!
The weather gets even hotter, making fishing best around the jetties and piers early in the morning or in the channels and passes later in the day. Tarpon is migrating northwards but still very much available from Fort Myers.
Fishing for Snook and Tarpon starts to taper off around the beaches, although Snook may be caught on the flats as they travel towards the backcountry lakes.
Fort Myers becomes less crowded in September as families take the kids back to school and hurricanes threaten. Water temperatures are still warm, so look for deep holes and shade, targeting Redfish, Snook, and Trout.
The main focus for Fort Myers fishing in October is Redfish. Big ones. They start to spawn in inlets and river mouths at this time of year. Sight fishing on the flats is exceptional, thanks to very low tides. Cobia starts coming south again.
The Redfish spawn continues, with excellent fishing available. Temperatures gradually start to drop, remaining extremely comfortable for fish and anglers. Big Trout start to show up on the flats and the Snook are getting fat.
