Today’s Boca Grande fishing report: Jack caught inshore of Boca Grande Pass.

 

Boca Grande is famous for tarpon fishing, particularly when the tarpon move into Boca Grande Pass in May and June.  Many consider Boca Grande Pass the best tarpon fishing location in the world!

The tarpon also attract very large bull sharks and hammerhead sharks that congregate to feed on the tarpon, so it is also famous for big time catch and release shark fishing!

Year round, the fishing at Boca Grande, in and around Gasparilla Island and greater Charlotte Harbor is terrific!  We catch sea trout, redfish, snook, flounder, spanish mackerel, grouper, goliath grouper and many, many more species!

So whether you are an experienced fisherman or just a family looking to have some fun, give us a call and we’ll get out on the water!

Please see additional fishing reports, photos and videos at our other fishing report sites for Sanibel Captiva, Fort MyersMiamiNaples and Tampa.

Happy fishing!

The Naples-Marco Island area has terrific beaches and beach fishing!  The beaches stretch along the Gulf of Mexico for about 10 miles and include Delnor-Wiggins Pass State Park, Clam Pass Beach Park, Naples Municipal Beach & Fishing Pier (Naples Pier), Vanderbilt Beach, North Gulfshore Boulevard Beach, and Lowdermilk Beach Park.  Naples beaches are often ranked in the top 5-10 beaches in America!

There are also a number of both small and very large reserves in and nearby Naples-Marco Island.  They include Corkscrew Swamp SanctuaryEverglades National ParkBig Cypress National Preserve, Florida Panther National Wildlife RefugeTen Thousand Islands National Wildlife Refuge, and Picayune Strand State Forest.

Like much of southwest Florida, Naples has barrier islands which mean great fishing!  The breadth of the natural ecosystem near Naples is immense and can’t be fully described in this short post.  Marco Island is the most well known, but Marco Island spills south into the Ten Thousand Islands and unbelievably good fishing!

Other islands include Keywaydin Island, which is the longest unbridged island in southwest Florida and has a lot of natural habitat, and Kice Island and Cape Romano, which are very remote!

We’re just getting started in Naples, but we’re looking forward to reporting on Naples fishing!
