Area Info

Southwest Florida

This pristine stretch of Florida's Gulf coast is flourished with some of the most productive fishing waters found anywhere in the country. The coastline starts in Sarasota, running as far south as Fort Myers.

Miles closer to the action than surrounding areas, this diverse fishery allows us to successfully target highly sought after game fish that will dwarf any other catch. There is a lot of territory to cover so the pressure of fishing offshore is a fraction of the surrounding areas, often without another boat in sight.

Choosing a well experienced captain with the right boat, tackle, gear, and navigating skills is key to making the difference between a thrilling trip and a frustrating one.


  • Rainy season lasts from June through September.
  • Hurricane season generally begins late summer through late October in the Gulf of Mexico.
  • Comfortable weather year round.
  • Offshore breezes are normally 12-18 mph.
  • Thunderstorms tend to pop up quickly but also dissipate just as quick with the sunshine returning.
  • Winters are lovely with warm afternoons and mild evenings with little to no rain.
