Winter fishing patterns

By |February 4th, 2016|

Finally a break in the rain and winds had anglers on the bite this weekend thru Wednesday. After the winds died down and the water began to loose the sediment it carried through most of the previous week, fishing got better. Sheepshead continue to be caught regularly, using jigs tipped with shrimp. Trout fishing continues [...]

Fishing Winter in Fort Myers

By |January 27th, 2016|

  Redfish, sheepshead, and trout became the targets all week as the nearshore waters produced very little all week. Sheepshead have begun there inshore spawn with fish up to 5lbs available in the skinny waters of estero bay. Fishing jigs with small hooks tipped with shrimp will get a few in the boat. The redfish [...]

Redfishing Estero

By |January 5th, 2016|

As the biggest cold front of the year came in on Monday, everyday before it worked out just fine. There was a lists of options depending on your needs this week from redfish, snook, and big jacks all the way down to bluefish, kingfish, and groupers. The diversity continued to be all over the place [...]

December fishing in Florida is great

By |December 17th, 2015|

  The offshore and near shore bite continued for another week as a plethora of bait continues to stick around. Cobia, kingfish, tripletail and snapper fishing was good with most fish caught in more than 25 feet of water. The backcountry bite was also good on incoming water tides that stayed somewhat clean. During the [...]

Still windy

By |December 8th, 2015|

  Estero bay had another week of strong winds that continued to keep the flow of incoming tides at bay throughout most of the week. Once the tides started winning the battle and water got over the one foot mark the bite began. Redfishing was ok with some nice fish caught up to 30". Snook [...]

Windy But Good Fishing

By |December 1st, 2015|

  With over a week of winds pushing hard from the North East it took awhile for the water to get back into Estero bay, but when it did the fish were biting. Redfishing although not stellar still worked out when soaking cut baits and shrimp on jigs around mangrove shorelines and oyster bars. Trout [...]

Snook report

By |November 9th, 2013|

Snook fishing's been very steady this last month with waters clearing up after all the lake Okeechobee water being dumped. Fish are starting there track back in from the reefs and wrecks to there winter haunts. I recommend fishing canals that have saltwater access points, fishing your local seawalls and docks and of course mangrove [...]

Grouper getting

By |September 22nd, 2013|

Trolling the crab buoys takes skill but whats down there starring at them is well worth it. Instead of jigging or chumming up an area try trolling. Using big plugs that get down deep can be very effective. In general stone crabbers put there traps on hard bottom often near ledges or drops. These are [...]

Triple tail time

By |September 11th, 2013|

Triple tail will be in full swing come October once all theĀ  stone crab traps are dropped from Flamingo to Gasparilla. Even though the majority of the fish you'll see will only be in the 15" range, you can find good fish in the 6-10# class on occasion. Often many fish will pile up in [...]
