Finally got a decent cold front move through the area. And while the temperature may have cooled down, the inshore bite certainly has not!
Redfish were the star of the week with nice upper slot fish landed in the flats along Sanibel Island and Captiva Island. Also managed some nice Reds in northern Matlacha Pass on the warmer afternoon tides.
Snook slowed down a bit as expected with the colder temps but we still managed to find lots of hungry ones in the canals along Cape Coral and Fort Myers.
Big trout are making for some non-stop action during the late morning tides. Not to mention some easy and delicious table fare for our guests.
Looks like the cold is moving on and temps will be rising quickly providing for even more steady action inshore. Still some spots left in January so book now to save a slot!
The warm weather trend continued last week with high temps in the 80’s and water temps in the high 70’s. Fortunately, the fish seem to be enjoying the warm water and our guests definitely enjoyed the action!
Snook continue to be the best action around with bigger fish along the shores of Fort Myers and Cape Coral. Lots of lower slot fish along Pine Island Sound near Sanibel and Captiva.
We found some very nice Redfish working some oyster bars on the lower morning tides in Matlacha also along the Cape Coral side.
We also managed to find big Trout last week despite the warm water temps. Something our guests really enjoyed as we are allowed to harvest Trout in our local waters. We had several trips last week with Trout limits in under an hour.
Looks like we are finally getting a cold front this coming week which should bring a great bite for our guests!
We are fully booked for the remainder of December but have some spots left in January. Start the new year off right with a trophy fish here in beautiful southwest Florida!
Merry Christmas to all our friends, family and wonderful clients!
The warm weather trend is keeping the inshore bite red hot this December all along southwest Florida!
The Snook seem to be everywhere these days! From the creeks and passes around Sanibel and Captiva Islands to deep within the mangroves along Pine Island Sound and up into Matlacha. Lots of action this past week with sizes all over the board. The Caloosahatchee river held tons of Snook along the Cape Coral and Fort Myers shoreline.
Redfish were holding strong with big schools gathering up on the late morning low tides. We picked some nice fish off the packs this past week in northern Pine Island on cut ladyfish and crabs.
Forecast calls for continuing warm weather as we head into the holiday season. Still a couple days left during winter break to get the kids on some action! Call now and book today!
