                 Finally a beautiful day on Captiva for the Santiva Saltwater Fishing Team

I know what happens

Ever wonder where fishing guides go when they retire ?  I found out ! To the woods.

Shark time

Many of the inquiries for the Santiva Saltwater Fishing Team during spring is for shark fishing.

I have been telling cold,  I don't think so

I guess the sharks are feeling different.

Maybe they gave up waiting for warmer weather too.

  Caught today 3/28 with Capt. Jim Burnsed

Spring Break ?  I think spring broke and ran ........ from Captiva

The wind Blew hard, it rained, threatened to rain and some of the coldest temperatures of the year
Spring Break week March  24, 2013

We had some great troopers willing to give boating with Santiva Saltwater Fishing Team a try in spite of the weather


Hi Dal,

We fished with Brian on Tuesday in less than ideal conditions but had a great morning!  2 spotted sea trout and 4 catfish.  We had fun catching them even though Brian thought they were not great.  Lamar and Brian are great guides, looking forward to next year!

The wind will not stop !!!!

My stars !!! The Santiva Saltwater Fishing Team is like the energizer bunny.......our guides just keep going

In spite of the 25 to 30 mph winds today, Capt Jimmy Burnsed and Capt. Bryan put smiles on faces .

All of the captains fishing with the Santiva Saltwater Team called to report "Fish in the boats"

Double luck, caught at the same time

Enjoying a windy day with the Santiva Saltwater Fishing Team.   Anglers, young and older  strapped down their hats and braved the windy day with out disappointment.

What's up with March ?

 Rich and Pam Bzdyra from Rhode Island are showing off their catch this week.  Capt. Josh fishing with the Santiva saltwater Fishing Team, found a nice spot out of the wind.

I guess I should not have been bragging about the great January and February weather.
March has made me humble again.

It's March 20th and the  water temperature is back down to 68,  very strange weather for Captiva.

Windy and rainy for March, BUT NO SNOW and nice temperatures.

Look at the size of the spotted sea trout ! Nice !
