Estero Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report
The tarpon bite in Estero Bay continues to stay strong. Locating the fish isn't the problem though. Half of the battle is getting a fish to bite and not shake the hook. These fish are feeding on mullet, crabs, shrimp, pilchards, soft plastics, and hard plastics. For the best chance at landing one, call in advanced for the best time and tides.
Snook are thick along the beaches and have been feeding heavy on pilchards. If you don't have pilchards it may be difficult to get these fish to bite.
Redfish are along mangrove shorelines and tight on oyster beds. My favorite bait to use is pinfish and ladyfish, but some days the redfish will only feed on shrimp. Having an array of bait on the boat is key to success.
