Tuesday, October 30, 2012: A truly fantastic day on Sanibel & Captiva Fishing charters ~ catch & release shark fishing!

Sunrise over Captiva Island on Sanibel & Captiva charters

On today’s charter we started the day with a fantastic view!  This is why I personally advise that you get an early charter, so you can get this view of a lifetime!

After enjoying the view for a while we decided to head up to Redfish Pass to fish it’s rock wall. After doing that for a while we managed to catch a couple of huge Snook, but the action was slow so we moved off looking for a better spot.

We then went to Captiva Pass where we went Shark fishing!  We caught one big Bull Shark, he was about six feet long and 130 pounds.  After we released him, the sharks stopped biting, so we went to a Sea Trout hole inshore of Cayo Casta!

There we finally had some consistent fishing!  We landed, and release about 40 Sea Trout within an hour and a half of our arrival to the spot.

And the big finale of our day was when we were heading back into port we saw some Dolphins playing offshore of Captiva Island!
