Sight fishing consist of casting to fish laid up in shallow clear “pot holes” as well as redfish that are “tailing”. When a redfish has his nose buried in the sand and his tail is sticking out of the water my heart rate goes up a few beats. Although these redfish are activley feeding when they tail it doesn’t always end with a hooked fish for the angler. We fish very shallow water, 12-18 inches deep therfore the redfish can quickly be spooked away by a bad cast. Make a good cast and the end result is normally a hookup.
I fish Pine Island Sound for the majority of the fall and winter. I have found over the last 7 or 8 years that the fishery found in Pine Island is better than the backcountry of Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor. Pine Island Sound is a short boat ride from Boca Grande, about 5 miles. I have pick up locations on Boca Grande as well as Pine Island for my fall and winter time charters. For booking information please feel free to call me at 239-825-8791. Thanks Capt. Chuck Jenks
