Start of February 2015 Offshore Charter Fishing Report

Posted by Captain Bill Curtis on Tuesday, February 3, 2015, In : Fort Myers 
The weather has made it a little tough on a few trips over the last week, but the fishing continues to be excellent. Our focus continues to be filling the fish box with red grouper on our 8-10 hour trips.



We are also able to get out far enough to where the Amberjack are on our 10 hour trips. The Amberjacks definitely prefer a nice live bait, so be sure to have a bunch in the livewell if you are going to target them.



We have been catching good numbers of red grouper up to 32” except for one ...

Christmas 2014 Charter Fishing Report

Posted by Captain Bill Curtis on Monday, December 29, 2014, In : Fort Myers 
The offshore bite continues to be great. We are catching lots of porgies, some of the best eating fish in the gulf, mangrove snapper, and some surprisingly large yellowtail snapper. Lots of red grouper have been giving our anglers great battles on spinning gear, even though they still have to be released for another few days.
