Fort Myers fishing Captain Terry shows off this awesome Tarpon caught while fishing in Pine Island.

Hello, My name is Capt. Terry Pitz and Welcome to my website. I am a Fishing Guide on the flats and backcountry for tarpon, snook, trout, redfish and much more! I offer bait, spinning, light tackle or flyfishing for the experienced or novice fisherman.

If your staying in Sanibel, Captiva, Fort Myers Beach, Naples, Cape Coral or here on Pine Island. I'm your guide, I have pickup spots for all of these areas, less than a 30 minute drive. We'll be fishing the beautiful waters of Pine Island Sound. The Sound has over 500 square miles of water and hundreds of mangrove islands. It's rich with wildlife and beauty.

Did I mention the fishing is fantastic too? We will be fishing afloat a 21' Lake and Bay Flats boat that floats in 8 inches of water to get to those hard to find fish.

I have been a USCG licensed Captain for over twenty years. I have been guiding these waters since 1996. I have also guided in Alaska and Colorado. I am a certified fly instuctor and have over twenty corporate sponsors.

I was voted the Best 2010 Fishing Guide by the people of Pine Island and the Pine Island Press. And was added to the Mercury Pro team in 2011. Fishing is all about having FUN, so if you ready to have some fun, just give me a call and book a fishing trip of a lifetime.

Naples fishing guide

The back country and the flats fishing in Fort Myers, Naples, and the surrounding region offers some of the finest saltwater sight casting to redfish and the many other popular species that call this region of SW Florida home. And nothing makes a Fort Myers or Naples fly fishing or light tackle enthusiast happier than to feel the rod double over and see and hear the line strip off as a giant tarpon, snook, or big bull redfish fiercely and bullishly runs away from the boat in an all out attempt to shake loose the hook in his mouth and fight to regain his freedom.

This is Fort Myers Fishing and Naples inshore light tackle fishing at it's best and also when the serious angler gets to put all his mental and physical fly or light tackle fishing skills he has accumulated over the years to the test. This is the time to show patience and finesse as you fight a 20 or 30 pound fish on 8 or 10 pound test line in a foot of water. If you are ready for this type of fishing excitement and would like to fish with one of the top guides in the region then call Captain Terry Pitz at the number below. He fishes all inshore regions of SW Florida.

Naples fishing guide

For inshore light tackle or fly fishing fun where trophy tarpon, redfish, snook, and trout are sometimes taken you want to make sure you select a qualified fly fishing guide that works well together with his customers. Both light tackle rods and fly rods can take some talent and experience to operate correctly. Captain Terry is an expert fly fisherman and flats angler plus he is the type of guide that does not mind one bit working with customers that may be a bit rusty or inexperienced in their casting skills.

Not just for the advanced angler either as beginners are welcome aboard to catch their first fish on a fly. In fact Captain Terry prides himself on being the best Fort Myers fly fishing guide he can be, as an angler, as a Captain, and as a teacher. Captain Terry has great patience, a much needed quality to be a successful Florida flats fishing guide and he has the patience to work with beginners and if you fit that profile then you just can't choose a better guide.
