New Boat just weeks away.  See the progress.

Let me share my more than 30 years of local knowledge on Pine Island sound with you.  I spend 300 days plus a year on the water and specialize in light tackle live bait sport fishing for Snook, redfish, trout, tarpon and sharks.

Pine Island is the largest island on the west coast of Florida, just 15-20 minutes from Cape Coral, 30 minutes from Ft. Myers and one hour from Southwest Florida International Airport (RSW). Pine Island's secluded, quaint and "country waterfront" atmosphere is a huge part of its charm. Fringed with mangroves rather than white sand beaches, Pine Island has escaped the concrete, blacktop and skyscrapers found in the more touristy, beachy communities. Current legislation prohibits high density, high-rise development in the foreseeable future . . . designed to preserve our unique, rural island heritage for generations to come.

Come and enjoy some of Florida's best sport fishing or let me take you on a shelling trip, dolphin watching or on a eco tour, I serve all of the areas around Ft. Myers, Cape Coral, Pine Island, Sanibel and Captiva with a pick up location available close to you.. 

  This redfish was taken on a live pinfish fishing docks on the out going tide, It measured 48 inches and weighed 32 pounds That puts it well over the slot size of 18-27 inches, It was released unharmed after a quick picture to fight again. 
Pine Island sound bull redfish are one of the hardest fighting fish pound for pound in our area. They stay down and slug it out. 



Below is my boat, a custom 22-2 1969 classic Aquasport flatback. I spent more than 15 months totally rebuilding "my baby" using only the finest materials and rigging components available . She has all the toys including a remote control trolling motor, tower, satellite radio, power pole etc and is powered by a super quiet 2014 Mercury four stroke 150 mounted on a Porta lift bracket for super shallow water operation. She is extremely dry, smooth and comfortable yet can handle four anglers while easily operating in a foot of water. In my opinion she is the ultimate SWFL guide boat.
