This is the tenth installment of “Fort Myers Beach and Bonita Beach: A Renter’s Guide To the Islands”which can be downloaded for FREE from our eBook library.

If you love to fish, and you’re staying on Fort Myers Beach or Bonita Beach, you’ve officially arrived in paradise. The fishing in Southwest Florida is an experience like no other, whether you’re an avid angler, a weekend fisherman, or just enjoy casting an occasional line as you bask in the sun.
