Se Florida fishing - what would you do?

6 posts in this topic

We will be spending the month of February in Ft. Myers. My 27 yr. old son is coming down and wants to book a fishing trip. He would like to go out in the gulf. I think we would have more fun on the flats around the 10000 islands. Anybody have any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

Dan

Isn't Ft Meyers more on the west side of florida? (not counting the panhandle)   Title says SE

 

Saw the title and was thinking Ft Lauderdale/Boca Raton

The west coast looks like it has better fishing anyway, the couple of times I was down there.  There are all those rivers and canals and stuff. 

 

Have a great time.

find a reputable captain.   there are tons of boats that will take you out for a 100 bucks and just troll around catching you all the king macks and bonito's you can handle.   throw in a mahimahi and a cuda possibly.   they generally us squid baits tied 50' back from a diver.  which means that you fight the fish until its 50' away and then they bring it in by hand the rest of the way.  

 

its a tourist trap.  around ft meyers i would stick to inshore fishing guides.  tarpon/snook/redfish is where its at.
