Captain Terry Fisher and 1st Mate Vicki of Fish Face Charters LLC were recently at the Bonita Springs Boat Show offering free fishing seminars on both inshore and offshore fishing, answering boaters’ questions, and sharing important tips for fishing here in Southwest Florida.

The fishing has been fantastic for virtually every species that thrive in our waters. Notwithstanding the fact that all species are not available for harvest, they are still exciting to catch and release. Featured in this report are some of the more recent charters with catches that we are proud of:

Long time client and friend, Ken Laszczych of Cape Coral spent a day this month catching virtually every inshore species that swim in our waters. He is pictured with one of many Redfish caught during our time together on the water. He and I are scheduled to fish again on March 4!

Brian Adelhardt is pictured with his grandson Mason Adelhardt of Pylesville, Maryland with nice Sheepshead they caught for the dinner table. Mason had the biggest one and proved to be one the better, more experienced junior anglers that I have had the pleasure to fish with. Mason is also pictured with a couple of his Spanish Mackerel. Nice job Mason!

Friends and clients Ryan and father, Drew Connor of Manhattan, New York are pictured respectively with Ryan’s big Spanish Mackerel and dad’s big Seatrout. I have the pleasure of fishing with them on a regular basis during some of their visits to SW Florida. Nice going guys. Hope to see you again sometime in March.

Another long time friend and client, Rich Obster celebrated a belated birthday gift from his daughter aboard Fish Face II a few days ago. He was accompanied with Tim Schreyer from Milford, Pennsylvania and Richie Weekes of Jefferson, New Jersey. Rich is pictured with a nice Seatrout while Tim holds a Sheepshead. All three are pictured together with Spanish Mackerel catches. Fun Stuff!

I am looking forward to fishing the coming week(s) and month(s) as the water quality is good, warm and productive. This is Captain Terry Fisher wishing everyone ‘tight’ lines and safe boating. I am available as ‘Captain for Hire’ on your vessel by the hour for navigational and fishing instructions including, but not limited to fishing spots and successful techniques.
