Estero Bay Fishing Report: Fishing the last month has been nothing short of Amazing! On days with good tidal flow we have been catching Snook, Redfish, Big Jack Crevalle, Snapper, and some sea trout in Estero bay. While the Sea Trout bite is not what it was in March, there are still some trout around. Weve been fishing around Mangrove shore lines for redfish using cut Mullet, Ladyfish, and threadfins when we can find them. Snapper are really starting to move in and should only to get better as we progress into the summer season.
Fort Myers and Naples Offshore/nearshore fishing report: The offshore bite has been great. The ticket is beating the wind. Weve been catching lots of Grunts, Snapper, Porgys, and red Grouper with the occasional Gag or kingfish mixed in. We have seen a few cobia and tripletail with reports of good tarpon fishing just north of us around Captiva and Sanibel Island, boca grande pass, and charolette harbor.
