When looking to book a Fort Myers fishing guide or any guide for that matter it is very important to do your research. As a customer you want to book a guide who was born and raised on the water in the area you desire to fish. Local knowledge with many years of experience is key. Even if the fishing guide hasn’t been in business long doesn’t mean anything. You want a fishing guide that has a professional appearance, nice equipment, awesome boat, great reviews, appealing  website with current up to date images and articles.

In Fort Myers there are tons of fishing guides. Most are great some are not so great. Good customer service skills are also very important. Prompt call backs, email responses, and a fishing guide that takes the time to talk you about how the bite has been, upcoming weather, tides ect.. all are signs that the guide is serious about what he is doing.

I hope these few pointers help you in choosing the best fishing guide for you and your next charter.
