Cape Coral is a fishing town with interior waterways, islands, the Intracoastal Waterway, and the Gulf of Mexico. Cape Coral Fishing Charters can take you inshore or offshore to target many tasty and fun fish. The Matlacha Pass and Caloosahatchee River surround Cape Coral, and the city has over 400 miles of waterways, where many freshwater and saltwater fish call home.
Inshore fishing in Cape Coral is fantastic. You can search for Redfish in the Matlacha Pass and the numerous back bays or Snook near Pine Island’s grassy flats. Brackish water is perfect for many fish species like Sea Trout, Sheepshead and more. Your Cape Coral Fishing Charter with experienced local captains will put you on the fish. Cape Coral is also just south of the world-famous Boca Grande Pass, and the Tarpon that migrate there come through the waters of Cape Coral. This allows you to battle with a Silver King without the enormous crowds at the “Pass.”
Nearshore are Redfish and Tarpon, and the reefs are full of bottom fish like Snapper and Grouper. There are also Permit, Jacks, Tripletail, Cobia, Barracuda and Sharks cruising the reefs. If you venture further, you can battle with larger trophy fish like Mahi Mahi and Tuna. If you venture way out at some times during the year, you might even get to fight with a Blue Marlin.
Cape Coral’s location makes it a perfect place to plan a fishing vacation or a fishing weekend. Let the many Cape Coral Fishing Charters found at several marinas around town take you for a day on the water you will be able to brag about to your friends for a long time.
