Joanne is the Onshore Fishing Expert & Teacher

She will help you select the North Captiva Island vacation home, which becomes your family's prime fishing spot.  Then she teaches you respect for nature and God's creation, how to love your live bait and lures (which she provides), perfect presentation to the fish (and later, the plate), how to hook, landing these monsters, gentle-respectful catch-and-release, and meticulous fish cleaning techniques.  This is the most fun you and your entire family will ever have fishing - guaranteed!

Most of your friends won't believe you caught such incredible fish, so The North Captiva Fishing Lady also provides a library of beautiful pictures, creating memories you will cherish for a lifetime!
