Many, many of my customers show up in hopes of catching a Permit, the prized sportfish found here in Southwest Florida. On our recent nearshore trips we have been tearing it up with the Permit fishing. The weather has been fantastic, the water is warming up quite nicely and the fish have been plentiful.

Not only has the bite on Reds, like Dave’s taken in mid-April, been great, but we have also been putting full limits of Mangrove Snapper, Yellowtail Snapper, and Amberjack in the box on most trips as well. Read More on Deep Sea Fishing.
For families looking to bend a rod on something a little more challenging than trout and redfish, you can’t go wrong with a family nearshore trip. King Mackerel, like the one above, Spanish Mackerel, Cobia, Permit, Sharks, and Goliath Grouper are all regulars on these trips. Read more on Nearshore Fishing.
Amberjack like this one that Liz and dad Adam put a beating on in early April have been cooperative enough to allow us to catch them right on top well within sight of the boat. Nothing is more fun than watching a fifty pound torpedo of solid muscle blast baits and plugs in gin-clear water just feet from the boat! These fish are not only great sport, but offer great eating as well. Its a little known fact that when properly handled and trimmed they serve up as some of the tastiest sushi this side of Tokyo!
Just a couple photos from last week. I didn’t take too many for some reason, I’ll try harder this week!
