In the Fort Myers Beach area there is year round opportunity for anglers to enjoy both inshore and offshore fishing.  While fishing inshore anglers will get to enjoy the beautiful scenery thanks to the mangrove forests and abundant wildlife. While casting out, anglers will get the opportunity to fish for trout, snapper, snook, redfish, tarpon, drum, pompano, ladyfish, sheepshead, and catfish.  Out in the backwaters shrimp seems to be the most popular bait.

Offshore fishing in the Fort Myers Beach area is an exciting adventure for all anglers.  Thanks to the Gulf of Mexico fisherman can fish both natural and artificial reefs, plus sunken boats or wreckage which provide homes for species such as Spanish mackerel, king mackerel, cobia, permit, grouper, barracuda, and many more.
