Beach snook sight-fishing is great fun, and is the most economical way to have a guided snook trip. No boats or kayaks are needed. Capt. Butch spent much of his youth beach fishing snook on Sanibel and Captiva Islands. He also has years of experience fishing the beaches of Lovers Key, Fort Myers Beach, North Captiva, Cayo Costa, Casey Key, and Siesta Key. His knowledge of the local waters, years of experience, and strong work ethic, combine to give you a fishing experience you'll never forget.
Southwest Florida's beaches are loaded with snook and many other species during the warmer months, and can be fished with virtually any kind of tackle. Sightfishing beach snook is best accomplished with fly gear, which allows the angler to haul and make immediate and repeated presentations. But, light spinning and baitcast gear with jigs, plugs, spoons, cut bait, and others, can be very effective, as well.
I like to get started early, even before the visibility is good. That gives us time to get to our destination, get on the beach, and get everything ready. I furnish transportation, rods and reels, and all terminal tackle for spin fishermen. I've learned that most fly fishermen like to use their own gear, especially fly reels. I can provide fly gear on request. I do keep a rod available for you to mount your flyreel to. Baitcast anglers need to bring their own gear. We don't use that much in these parts. Fly and spin are best!
Trips will normally last until noon. After than the conditions change (sun position and prevailing wind) and it's time to head home. Besides snook, you can expect to run into speckled trout, the occasional redfish, jacks, ladyfish, Spanish mackerel, pompano, little tunny, and even the silver king.
In summary, beach sight-fishing for snook is a fun, economical way to fish our waters and learn the ropes, while traveling light. At $200 for 6 hours, it's one of the most fun, yet economical ways for an avid angler to have a day of fun on our waters. The only other expense is that the customer has to pay for any parking fees involved. After a day of instruction and fishing with your guide on the beach, you'll be ready to strike out on your own each morning, if you want.
