There are a variety of other species to target besides the prestigious slams on inshore and Back Bay fishing charters in Fort Myers. Jack crevalle’s are one of my favorite charter fish. Jack’s are a very explosive and powerful fish offering one heck of battle! Besides jacks, Spanish mackerel, sheep head, snappers, lady fish, blue fish, catfish, and the occasional flounder are all species that can be targeted and caught in back waters of South West Florida.
Most inshore fishing charters begin bright and early in the morning. Start times usually begin around 7-8 am. However weather and tides can affect start times. As a client that wishes to have a great fishing adventure, you should be open to starting and fishing when your captain thinks it will best no matter the time of day or the conditions. Late afternoons till sunset can also be excellent times of day to fish so don’t be hung up on having to go early. More times than not late afternoon bites are some of the best bites of the day.
