The Captain
John was born and raised fishing the inshore Gulf Waters of Lee County. With over fifteen years of local experience, Capt. John understands the local environment and seasonal fishing trends. His ability to fish can be seen in his impressive resume of local tournament finishes, highlighted by a victory in the Flatsmasters Grand Championship.

The fertile waters of the Caloosahatchee maybe his home but Captain Landry has experience fishing all over the country. After the end of Tarpon season John travels to the Alganak River where he spends the remainder of the summer guiding clients to Salmon and Rainbow Trout.

SW Florida

The Region
Fishing in Southwest Florida can be one of the most rewarding experiences you may ever have. Much of our coastline is lined with mangroves, a prime ingredient for an estuary which is basically a breeding ground for both bait fish and sport fish. The shallow back bays provide the perfect location to catch redfish, Trout, Snook, & tarpon to name a few.
Enjoy a quick excursion to deeper waters where shipwrecks and artificial reefs provide the perfect sanctuary for a variety of Grouper, Snapper and Mackerel.

The Fishing
Southwest Florida has some of the best backwater fishing in the state. For the uninitiated, backwater fishing, or backcountry fishing, is angling in the extensive network of bays, mangrove islands and tidal creeks that permeate the region. There are thousands of miles of shoreline, countless oyster bars and acres of seagrass beds that attract an abundance of salt water fish.

Roaming these waters are four of the state's most sought after gamefish, the snook, redfish, grouper, and tarpon.

All of which Capt. John Landry grew up catching.
