Charter Fishing Guide Captain Bill Curtis

Ft. Myers Estero Bay redfish

Welcome to my website in your search for a private offshore charter fishing guide out of Fort Myers, Ft. Myers Beach, or Bonita Springs in the Southwest Florida area. In years past I have offered private inshore  guided charter fishing and sightseeing trips in South West Florida out of my 20' Mako Inshore Bayboat. I am now running only offshore charters on the 38' Seahawk named Fish-n-Tales out of Fish Tale Marina on Fort Myers beach. Our offshore fishing trips, for up to 6 people, predominantly for grouper and snapper range from 5-10 hours, as well as some 30 hour overnight trips mostly during mid summer. There is nothing like enjoying an offshore trip on this incredibly comfortable fish catching boat. Whether you are looking for a fishing, or sightseeing charter, I can offer you the trip of a lifetime.  Allow  me the pleasure to guide you to  experience an incredible day on the boat in our rich subtropical waters.  A day fishing with Captain Bill Curtis will give you a chance to catch red, gag, black, and scamp grouper, mangrove, lane, vermillion, and red snapper, kingfish, cobia, amberjack, sharks and others.  See my rates page for a full list of prices. To check available dates and or make a reservation please call Scott Lavis at (239) 770-7066. You can call me at (239) 229-6904 with any questions you may have, or to reserve a charter.

I offer private guided charter fishing trips in the Gulf of Mexico and the nearshore waters around Ft. Myers Beach and Sanibel, in Southwest Florida year round out of the Fish-n-Tales. A 38'x14' Seahawk enclosed cabin sportfish style boat with twin Yanmar Diesels. The boat is incredibly comfortable to ride and fish out of with many creature comforts, including a generator and air conditioning, as well as all the toys, tools, and safety equipment needed.  Please use the links at the top of the page to navigate my website, and hopefully find all the information you need to make a reservation, and book a great day on the water. Use the map below to find Fish Tale Marina, where all trips depart from. The fishing here can be absolutely incredible and the scenery always is. It is common to see many different species of birds, dolphins, turtles, and manatees during a day of fishing.
