Our fishing trip with CJ as our guide was awesome. This guy is passionate about fishing, especially Tarpon. My only regret was not being skilled enough to land the 125 pound Tarpon CJ worked so hard for 4 hours to grab my bait and hook. My line snapped after three majestic jumps. His knowledge of the wildlife around the region was a major bonus. When my wife asked about manatees, CJ promptly took the boat to an inlet filled with the gentle giants. If you want a professional to help you navigate and fish the waters around Fort Meyers, Cape Coral and the surrounding islands, book a trip with CJ at Endless Summers.

My wife, myself and 3 children (7,9,11) booked the 6 hour combo charter. We had a blast. Captain CJ was great. After a 40 minute run up to Captiva area we started fishing. After 2 brief stops we found a good spot and everyone caught 6-8 fish each. Except me!🤷‍♂️😃
We caught Spanish mackerel (which made awesome tacos later that night) trout, lady fish, lizard fish and a Jack Crevalle. Then we went shell hunting on a beach nearby. You get dropped off in about waist deep water so wear swimsuits. If we were to do this trip again we would probably fish longer or skip the shelling all together. Only because we were having so much fun catching fish. They are flexible and can adjust things to what you want to do most. Lunch on Cabbage Key was great. Got to see some tortoises and climb the water tower while we waited for our table. Food was good. Menu is a bit limited and no kids menu. We just split some burgers between them. Saw some dolphins on the trip and some big snook at the dock. CJ cleaned our fish and fed the snook and pelicans gathered by the dock. We had a great time.

The overall trip was a huge success. I was concerned with taking my boys (ages 6 & 9) out on the ocean fishing, but Angela ensured that this would be a good trip for all ages. She was spot on. The boys had a ball. The reservation process was simple, online or over the phone are both good options.

As far as the fun part, CJ was our captain and we could not have had a better time fishing. He kept the kids engaged and made us all feel welcome. I would highly recommend CJ and Endless Summer Charters for your future fishing trip needs in the Sanibel / Ft. Myers area.

What a phenomenal day !! If your in the Sanibel/ Fort Myers area , and looking to get in some fishing , shelling , dolphin watching in , or even a great lunch !! Look no further than Endless Summer Charters !! Captain Bill Hammond is such a professional. He put us on great Snook and Red Fish on a day when fishing conditions were less than favorable. My wife really enjoyed the trip as well as our 3 teenage sons. Captain Bill was able to show us manatees and dolphins and numerous birds. I also have to give a shout out to Bills wife Angela !! She makes booking trips so easy !!! Thanks for making it happen Angela. This was not our first trip out with Endless Summer Charters , nor will it be our last. Can’t thank y’all enough for all the great memories.
Until next time ,
Best Regards

My family and I had a great time with Bill as our captain. We booked a fish, shelling, and lunch charter. Everyone caught fish, mostly red snapper and one trout. We then went to Costa Key which was beautiful! We could have stayed there all day! Some bad weather came up and Bill kept us on schedule skirting the rain and getting us to cabbage key for lunch. The cheeseburgers and smoked Mahi fish dip were great but then the bottom fell out of the storm and the rain and lightning kept us there a little longer than expected, but Bill was very professional and watched the weather and got us back during a break in the storm. We would book with Endless Summers again and would recommend to our friends.

I'm happy we were able to get you home safe in the unpredictable weather in Florida. I'm glad we were able to work with Sanibel Limo to get you to your destination safely. Sorry, we couldn't control the weather. ;)

My family have been fishing with Captain Bill from Endless Summer Charters for 12+ years when we are in Sanibel. Each trip has been great and we always manage to catch fish. He is a consummate professional with his clients always attentive to safety, their comfort, and of course finding fish. I have fished with many guides over the years, most are long on ability and short on personality. With Captain Bill you get both! He also has a great memory for previous trips, family members, careers, etc. I recommend Endless Charters every chance I get because I trust them.

CJ was our captain. Despite high winds and generally poor fishing conditions, he was very positive and focused on bringing us to areas in the bay where we had the highest odds of success. We had planned a wreck and reef trip but it was just not possible and CJ made the most of the situation. He is a true professional — and a hardcore fisherman. My two boys, aged 10 and 13, my wife and me all had a blast and we are looking forward to coming back when the sea is calmer so we can catch some sharks!

Just returned from a four hour fishing trip with captain CJ. He was fabulous. He knows where the fish are and gets you to them quickly. Once the fish move on so does Captain CJ, onto the next fishing spot and time to reel in some more! We caught redfish, Spanish mackerel and snook. We even saw a pod of Dolphins. CJ even made sure we fished in a sheltered spot while a rain shower passed by. I would recommend a trip with CJ without a doubt. We’ll be back!

This is a second time with Captain Matt and as always was awesome. Even though we didn't catch as many keeper fish, we still catch fish. Captain Matt was great with my 10 year old and is always a pleasure. He knows the area well and will put you on fish. Highly recommended.

Glad you caught many fish. Yes, this time of year our slot limits and species we can keep are not as great as the ones we are catching! Hope to have you aboard again soon!

My husband and I went out on the Back Bay & Nearshore Fishing charter with Captain John. What a fantastic day! Although never guaranteed, we did catch several keeper fish thanks to Captain John and his knowledge about the waters we were fishing in. As soon as our bait was in the water, we had a bite. Captain John was very hands-on and incredibly helpful with whatever we needed. From casting, putting bait on, removing fish and cleaning our catch at the dock. We could not have asked for a better day or a better Captain... Thank you Captain John!
