My wife and I, who have been out previously with your team had the pleasure of
showing our friends Jim and Ann FitzGerald the mystique of Pine Island Sound.
Rob McKay could not have been more cordial. He was knowlegable an most
entertaining. We even got to see a rare Star Gazer fish he just recently had
identified himself. The Morgan is a great vessel for four guests. Sharing
stories and jokes and enjoying a beautiful day on the water was a highlight
for our friends. Rob is a stellar representative of your team and we look
forward to a repeat adventure with him in the future. Thank You.

Windy day snook

The Santiva Saltwater Fishing Team has be forced to stay at the dock for the past 4 days. The wind has blown 25 to 30 knots ,  finally taking a break calming to about 15 knots this afternoon.

 Capt. Jimmy Burnsed was the only guide to brave the strong winds and it payed off for Charlie.

Charlie boated this 12 lb snook, a picture than back in the water.

The Santiva Saltwater Fishing Team is excited that Tarpon and Sharks are back.

For the next 10 weeks or longer Tarpon will pass thru the warm waters off Sanibel and Captiva on their yearly migration . It is an exciting time for all anglers, looking to hook up for a great fight  with 100 plus pounds of might.

The shark fishing will get better and bigger as summer approaches and the waters off Sanibel and Captiva reach temperatures of 85 degree.  Black tip, bull sharks, nurse, hammerheads and others will offer an exciting catch for anglers of all ages.

Call 239 472 1779 and make your summer reservation now.
