The end of March has brought a wide variety of fish being caught. Recent fishing charters have caught tarpon, snook, redfish, lady fish, spanish mackerel, mangrove snapper, sharks, trout, and barracuda. The last week was a whirlwind with one fishing charter after the next.
One of my more memorable trips was the Disterhoft Family. They scheduled a four hour fishing charter and requested some sightseeing and some fishing. We started with a nice boat ride to North Captiva Island where we waded through some knee deep flats while the kids had blast chasing minnows, and crabs. Then we crossed the island to the Gulf of Mexico side where we enjoyed the completely private beach filled with beautiful shells. We then saw dolphins up close and toured other area “must sees.” Now it was time to start fishing. We caught a few barracudas and were set up to avoid the wind and hopefully catch some trout. With that, Keira’s bobber went under, after letting her know it was down she started reeling. The line came tight and the drag started screaming. With very little help Keira reeled in an almost 30″ snook. What an exciting afternoon, a great picture with her and her dad, and a memory she will never forget.
The new boat is almost done and will be delivered soon. The next few weeks of fishing charters will be focused on tarpon. To be one of the first fishing charters on the new boat, book your trip today.
