Can anyone help? I will be in Ft. Myers April 8-14 staying on Ft.Myers beach and wanted to know if anyone has any experience surf fishing there. What kind if bait hook and tackle? I will have a sein net to try on the beach.
yea, my grandparents have a house there, from piers the best catch is usually sheepshead, snook, roundhead(kingfish/seamullet), and maybe a snapper.
As far as I know live shrimp are the best bait, also the difference between live and dead/frozen shrimp can be crucial. Have fun and if your catching nothing, pay close attention to those who are.
