Good Fishing in Between the Cold Fronts

February 17, 2020

New customer Joel shared this picture of a very nice catch and release gag grouper he caught this week. On his trip we caught plenty of keeper red grouper along with snapper and porgys so the guys took home plenty of fish. We caught several nice gag grouper this week we had to release, along with decent numbers of red grouper we were able to keep. On a 6 hour trip this week we caught another nice gag, and all the healthy mangrove snapper we wanted. Only kept about 20 before we left them bitin...

Good start to 2020 Ft Myers Beach Offshore Fishing Charters

January 21, 2020

The last 2 days have been about as good as it gets with Fish n Tales Offshore Charters. Both days have been 10 hour dedicated grouper trips with returning customers. Just enough of a lite cool breeze kept the seas under 2’ and the boat just where I wanted it. Both days the fishing was great, with limits of red grouper including some pretty big ones in the mix. And we got our limits early enough so that we could target snapper, and my personal favorite, porgys. Trips made for great memories ...

1/7/20 10 Hour Deep Sea Fishing Charter

January 10, 2020

Nothing but big fish today. Most of our trips are about how many grouper we can get in the box, but today was different. We caught Ajs, Bonita, barracuda, 3 species of sharks up to and over 8’ and 250#, a nice Cobia, and one lone red grouper. Along with battling a few Goliath grouper that pretty much whooped our butts. It all made for another stellar day on the Fish n Tales offshore charter boat.

Wind blowing today so I have a chance to post. Fishing continues to be excellent. We’re getting good numbers of red grouper with a mixed bag of mangrove, vermillion, and yellowtail snapper. Unfortunately lane snapper are now closed through the end of the year. But we also caught some nice porgys as well this week, even if they all didn’t make it in the boat.

Starting to get a few trips in as season has begun. The last trip was a 10 hour with a returning group of anglers. Fishing was easy with a limit of red grouper by 11 am, with some nice ones in the mix. Highlight of the day was a quick glimpse of a 12-13' Tiger Shark that briefly visited us.

November 2016 Offshore charter Fishing Update

November 9, 2016

It's been a while since I've posted anything so I thought I'd share a few pictures and a brief update and report. As usual we haven't had many trips the last month or 2, which is good. First mate Andrew and myself are recharged for another season, and the boat is ready. We have gotten a few successful dive trips with the kids in over the last month. Where we found some great fish along with a few big gulf lobsters and a bunch of stone crabs.

Fishing has been easy when we have gotten out...
