Personable Captain

There is more to being a good guide than just finding fish, no-one wants to spend a day with someone they don’t like or is not fun to be around!



Estero Florida sits right in the heart of Estero Bay which encompasses parts of Estero, Fort Myers, Fort Myers Beach, Bonita Springs, and Naples, and it is where Captain Mark Yimin provides clients with Estero Fishing Charters. The bay is about 15 square miles of tidal estuaries located in southwest Florida and is an inshore anglers dream!

Captain Mark is up hours before he picks up his clients for their Esteri Fishing Charters catching live bait for the day. Live, quality bait is almost as important as knowing where the fish will be located on a certain tide phase and what differentiates a fishing guide who cares about your trip from one who doesn’t. All bait fishing is done before clients are picked up using high quality cast nets to ensure all time spent on the boat is time fishing, allowing us to maximize the time for clients on our Estero fishing charters. After the day is over captain Mark will clean and bag any legal to possess fish caught during the Estero fishing charter. We provide EVERYTHING needed for a fishing charter with us, gas, bait, licensing, tackle, ice and a Yeti cooler to put your drinks and food into. We ask that you bring any food or drinks you’d like for the day, beer is OK to bring as well as wine. No liquor or glass bottles please!

Estero FL has all the perfect opportunities for catching the most popular game fish in Florida Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Spotted Sea Trout, Jack Crevalle, and more. Information on what you can catch, and when can be found in our seasons and species page. The terrain in Estero bay consists of oyster bars, mangrove shorelines, grass flats, passes and edges. Its a very shallow bay and most parts are only accessible with the shallowest running boats, making Captain Mark Yimin’s boat a perfect match for getting in to where the fish are.

The bay was once the center of the Calusa Indians kingdom, and a home to a spanish fort later.  Mound Key, which is a state park and archaeological site located in the center of the bay is made up of shell and bones from the Calusa towering over 30 feet above the water. This type of beautiful setting is where Captain Mark Yimin offers Estero Fishing Charters.
