Default Southwest Florida Guys

I've been looking in the Cape Coral area at second home possibilities. Hows the inshore fishing, boating etc? All opinions welcome.



thanks!

It's awesome. BTW I'll trade you my house in Marco Island for yours in SD.

But on your next trip out do me a favor please. Stop by Sunset Beach Bar and Grill and grab a 1/2 dozen wahoo tacos on your way to the airport. I'll take you out and you can fish while I eat.

Deal?

I think I'll keep my joint here, but the Taco deal is a go!

My parents live in Port Charlotte at the other end (north) of Charlotte Harbor. I've lived in the West Palm Bch area my entire life and never thought I'd leave but for the last few of years I've been visiting there makes me want to move. The variety of fishing is fantastic - back country, inshore, nearshore, offshore. Home prices are lower than the east coast. The people seem much nicer.

I don't know too much about Cape Coral but I love the harbor.

Homes are real cheap now for waterfront. Look at sw cape coral direct access. Alot of different fishing here. Have a home in cape coral and in NJ. You can have a boat in your backyard and be in the gulf in 30 minutes.

Doughnut,

I have a 2/2 condo with 25' slip on the water just south of Marco Island that would make a perfect second home if you interested. If so, PM me and I will send over some info.

Good luck in your search

Cheers,

David

Thanks for the info fellas, I was looking at Cape Coral because of some of the , well, incredibly low prices for single famly homes, there are 1/4 acre lot 3/2 houses for under $100K. I guess I need to come down and rent a car and cruise around for a few days, get the lay of the land so to speak. It just seems anideal area for semi-retirement/vacation in a coastal environment.

Be prepared for loud noises two times a day, during day and at night.
The noises of police car sirens and guns will make that cheap price seem like a rip off.

Cape Coral is a weird assed place. I'd only live waterfront/gulf access if I was ever going to live there.
