Backcountry and shallow water fly fishing / light tackle spin fishing charters in the Sanibel, Captiva, Pine Island Sound, Matlacha and Caloosahatchee river waterways. These areas offer some of the best fishing Southwest Fl has to offer. This area includes Fort Myers, Fort Myers beach, Sanibel and Captiva. I offer a wide variety of fishing charters, whether we’re poling in 7 inches of water for redfish, sight casting big snook in 1-2ft of water, or chasing tarpon in 10-15ft of water, Fishinghobbytoo charters covers all types of fishing. All levels of fisherman can be accommodated. This can range from the novice fishermen to the very experienced. There are many ways to catch fish around here that do not require much skill- for the beginners. My typical fishing charter includes 1-3 anglers fishing a 1/2, 3/4 or full day. Fishing licences are not required, I have one that covers you. This is a “have fun” no pressure type of fishing, I will be instructing you at the best of my ability without yelling. As your guide I can promise you that I will give the best of my ability effort to catch as many fish as possible.

17ft Maverik Hpx

This boat is specifically designed to fish in very shallow waters away from the crowed fishing areas. This boat has zero hull slap and that allows us to get much closer to the fish without them even knowing we are there. Fish are much smarter than used to be, so every little advantage may mean the difference between success or not.
