Sanibel Fishing Charters, March 8, 2019: False Albacore Tuna, Catch & Release!
Sanibel Island Fishing, March 8, 2019.
Vote Water For Florida’s Future!
Captiva Fishing Guide Report: Friday, March 8: False Albacore Tuna, Catch & Release, Captain Joe’s Charters – the weather is warming up, red tide is gone and a lot of good fish have moved back into the gulf, bay and passes; water is much, much better – redfish, sheepshead, black drum, snapper, snook, and seatrout are currently present.
Already seeing some positive impact. Some very nice big redfish and snook around, more big redfish than snook.
The Caloosahatchee freshwater releases are also not an issue right now, but still a huge long-term problem.
Extremely frustrating. We need wholesale changes in the Florida state government. It is not a Republican or Democrat issue – it is a Big Sugar control everyone issue. It is stunning how we continue to let the sugar industry and the agriculture north of Lake Okeechobee to damage the water and all of Florida.

We’re located in Castaways Marina, Santiva, Sanibel Island, just before the Blind Pass bridge to Captiva Island.
Blind Pass is one of the best shelling spots in Florida. Its waters yield seashells that inhabit both the bay and gulf in one consolidated location.
After a fierce storm, Turner Beach, the beach adjoining the Pass, is frequently covered with a bounty of shells from Olives to Fighting Whelks to the more common Conchs. The fishing is also renowned with sharks in the summer, tailing redfish on the bayside flats and snook under and off the Blind Pass bridge. Because Turner Beach faces Westward, the sunsets are spectacular and a popular viewing point for residents and visitors alike.
