Surf Casting & Shore Casting

The Perfect Way to Spend a Sunny Day

It doesn’t get any more relaxing than this.

You don’t have to go very far or go out of your way very much to find abundant fishing on Captiva Island. At South Seas Resort, you can fish right on the property, and with very little effort, you’re bound to find your favorite spot. From dawn ‘til dusk (and later!), you’ll find plenty of grouper, mangrove snapper, Spanish mackerel, right off the T-dock or on the beach, and schools of snook running in Redfish Pass. Buy yourself some frozen bait from the Ship’s Store or live bait from the Harbourmaster in Yacht Harbour Marina, find water, cast your line, and make a catch. Repeat as required.

Children under the age of 16 do not need a license. Guests 16 and older must obtain a fishing license that can be purchased online at Myfwc. Frozen bait is available for purchase from the Ships Store and live bait from the Harbormaster’s office in the Yacht Harbour and Marina.
