SW Florida fishing. Local Sarasota fishing charters that are deep sea fishing or bottom fishing specialists will usually target some of the most well known species for their customers. That's not to say they don't catch other exciting sportfishing species though because they do.
There are quite a few reasons the fishing in Sarasota, Naples, and Fort Myers offers so many fishing opportunities. One of the main reasons is that the Southwest Florida region, which includes many hot fishing grounds like Pine Island Sound, Sanibel, Charlotte Harbor, and other popular fishing areas, are all part of the Gulf of Mexico which is one of the most abundant marine fish resources in the world. These resource rich waters contain all the big game species you've heard of like big grouper, snapper, amberjack, and big sharks.
Other reasons why Fort Myers and Sarastota fishing charters of the region are so productive and successful is that the weather is fairly warm year round which means one species or another is always available.
Another reason SW Florida fishing charters are so productive and probably the most important reason is that the fishing guides of today are much more environmental friendly than the guides and charter Captains of old meaning most charter fishing boats of today practice catch and release.
This means if they have caught what they need, usually enough for a nice dinner they will release the rest of the fish they catch for someone to catch another day.
What will I catch on a Sarasota or Fort Myers charter fishing trip aboard the Dockoar?
Well that is the question most all anglers ask. Well the opportunities are almost endless which is why SW Florida fishing is so popular. Out of the entire Florida coastline it is this area, Sarasota, Port Charlotte, Punta Gorda, Cape Coral, Fort Myers, and Naples that is the most popular among Florida's local and visiting anglers. Although it is very likely that you will catch fish, knowing exactly what you catch really depends on the type of fishing the Captain is doing. If you are trolling you may hook up to a dolphin or a kingfish, if you are deep sea bottom fishing then be ready because you may tangle with a big ole grouper or an angry shark.
Redfish, Snook, Speckled Trout (Sea Trout), and Tarpon are usually the four most popular inshore species the Fort Myers, Naples, and Pine Island fishing guides will target.
- BOTTOM FISHING:
Cobia, Kingfish, Grouper, Snapper, Permit, and Sharks are a few other great fish caught in SW Florida a bit farther offshore.
