The Calahoosie River, which travels in from Lake Okeechobee, meets the backwaters of Sanibel & Captiva, creating a drawing current to the Gulf which then converges with the big waters of the Gulf of Mexico, creating what is known to the locals as the “Tooth Triangle.” The waters here move at such a high rate, keeping the oxygen levels high, and fish abundant and the shark fishing world class. WETJET Tours happens to be smack dab in the middle of some of the best inshore, nearshore and deep-sea shark fishing in Florida. Sharks are plentiful all year round from the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico to the shallow flats in and around Fort Myers Beach.
More than a dozen different shark species lurk beneath these waters: Black Tips, Spinners, Hammerheads, Nurse, Lemons, Bonnet Heads, Bull sharks and more call the west coast of Florida home. Have you heard about the legendary hammerhead Old Hitler that hangs out on the west coast of Florida? A hammerhead as wide as a pickup truck and longer than most of the fishing boats it has been spotted from. If you are not sufficiently pumped up about your Fort Myers shark fishing charter by now, research Old Hitler.
