Palm Island Florida Fishing
Palm Island (known to most locals as Don Pedro Island) is located across the Intracoastal Waterway from Cape Haze and Placida, Florida. Only accessible by boat or ferry, this rustic island provides its residents and guests with a glimpse of coastal Florida in it’s natural state, yet still offers a quiet, refined atmosphere with an emphasis on family-friendly activities and conveniences. 10 minutes South of Englewood, 40 minutes South of Sarasota, and, only minutes away from the tremendous Boca Grande Pass, this small island is filled with moderately priced vacation homes only steps away from some of the most beautiful beaches of Southwest Florida.
Surrounded by Lemon Bay, the Gulf of Mexico, Charlotte Harbor and Stump Pass, Palm Island fishing offers some of the most productive year-round waters found anywhere in the US. This scenic area offers everything a beginning or advanced angler could want including freshwater and brackish river mouths, mangrove lined salt creeks, expansive grass flats, miles of oyster bars, many deepwater passes, holes and even offshore wrecks, reefs and other structure.
This extremely diverse ecosystem is what allows us to successfully target so many highly sought after gamefish. This is also a lot of territory to cover so having a top-notch guide with the right boat can make the difference between a productive, enjoyable, action packed trip and a frustrating day striking out on the water.
Captain Tom offers a broad selection of fishing trips based on preferred type of catch, level of intensity, skill level of the angler, and, time of year. It is often best to ask his opinion of what will bring you the greatest level of success based on your criteria–that way you know you have the best chance of enjoying a successful day on the water.
