The need for a break and to cast a line can come at anytime. The Southwest Florida coast and Cape Coral are full of fun, sand, water, and sun for a beach vacation full of fishing excursions that is sure to leave you rested, relaxed, rejuvenated, and renewed, as well as with some new fish stories to tell friends and family when you get home. Make sure you have the proper Florida fishing license before casting a line! Read on below to learn more about fishing in Cape Coral!
Types of Fish in Cape Coral
Depending on where and when you cast a line, expect to find tarpon, redfish, snook, spotted sea trout, largemouth bass, catfish, crappie, bluegill, and many others.
Cape Coral actually has the highest number of canals in the world! If you’re looking for places to fish in Cape Coral, do so along the canals, as well as lakes like Alhambra Lake, Lake Kennedy, or Saratoga Lake for freshwater catches. Head to the outer rim of the Cape Coral peninsula and hook some saltwater dwellers. Drop a line in the waters of the Caloosahatchee River, the seawalls, or the Yacht Club Community Park fishing pier.
If you’re looking to sail the high seas of the Gulf in search of tarpon, snapper, grouper, and others, charter a deep sea excursion. Many companies offer trips that last from a couple hours to all day and even overnight! They may also include conveniences like all the rods, reels, bait, and tackle you’ll need for a productive time on the water. An exclusive few actually provide the proper Florida fishing licenses, but make sure to check and secure your own before departing.
Dock and Dine
You need to take a break and grab a bite, but you’re not ready to pack your gear up for the day yet. There are several area restaurants with dockside locations that allow you to “dock and dine” – moor your vessel at nearby docks and enjoy a delicious meal or much-needed drink after a long day on the water. Some even offer takeout and will bring the order directly to your vessel so you can grab your food and be off for more fishing adventures!
