Angler with JackChristie and Whitney,

My son and I were down during Easter week and you were tremendously helpful in getting us setup with gear and bait.  Jack had great luck at the pier all week and Christie toldus to send a picture.  Since 1974 we have never missed an April on Sanibel.  Thanks again for the tremendous service and we’ll see you next year!  Anthony and Jack G


Thank you for showing my family and I such a great time during our visit.  We had a great half day charter and the kids talked about fishing for the next 3 days.  We will be booking again with you next year when we return.

Thank you,

Debra V

Thank you very much for the help today.  Been coming to Sanibel for 5 years and just loved seeing a new shop open in town.  The atmosphere was awesome , Jim and gosh I forget the older gentlemen name were a great help.  They helped me land an awesome snook from the beach.  I am recovering from shoulder surgery so couldn’t throw a cast net for bait.  Your guys set me up and made me feel comfortable asking questions. 

Thank you very much…..  Memory Made!

Hey Whitney

Still basking in the after glow of the catch of a lifetime. Thx for making it happen.  Hope you enjoy the pics. Hopefully see you over Christmas.



I want to thank you guys for all the advice you gave. We got some great fish off the beach on Sanibel. I fish the Maine coast for stripers and this was the best. I’ll tell everyone up north about the fishing here and you guys.

Tight lines,

“Whitney’s has really done it! He has created a friendly atmospherewhere you feel more than welcome to stop in and pick their brains for all the good fishing information.  I am a new fisherman to the area but have a lot if fishing experience. Whitney and his staff have been so helpful with tips, tricks spots to fish and generally great information. Thanks to them I have caught so many species offish around the islands and have had a great time!  He also took the time totalk to my boys about how to fish for certain species.  If you are looking for good, friendly and honest fishing advice in the Sanibel area take the time to stop in Whitney’s Bait and Tackle.  You’ll be glad you did!”
