We took full advantage of this weeks warming trend with some of the warmest water temperatures we’ve experienced in months! The big snook along the river in Fort Myers began to bite pretty consistently with the rising temps. And while they are still under the protection of the red time moratorium, they still make for an amazing fight!
By far, the warming trend has had the greatest affect on the Redfish. Pine Island sound has seen the biggest and best increase in the Redfish bite along the shores of Sanibel Island and Captiva. Matlacha has also seen some steady increase in the big reds with crabs and lady fish being the bait of choice on the flats in the late morning and early afternoon.
