    January 2012 Fishing Report

    Sanibel Real Estate
    Great weather here in Ft. Myers and Sanibel Island. Water temperatures are colder and bait is scarce. I spend much of my time on the polling platform this time of year sneaking up on redfish and trout. The tides are low and the water is gin clear. Long cast with top water action is perfect in Jan. and Feb.

    Manatees Move Into Shallow Island Waters

    Manatees Move Into Shallow Island Waters

    As the Gulf of Mexico waters cool, more Manatees are moving into the shallow bay waters and canals around Sanibel and Captiva Islands. Closely related to the elephant, manatees are “gentle giants” of the sea which reach an average length of 10 feet and 1000 pounds as adults. Their diet consists of sea grasses which they consume for nearly 6 to 8 hours a day. The rest of a manatee’s day is spent sleeping or moving slowly. It’s vitally important to remember that these endangered creatures can’t dive quickly enough to evade the props of a speeding boat. Even while sleeping, they must return to the surface to breathe every 15 or 20 minutes.
