rough weather

Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

Winds with gust up to thirty out of the west southwest have been nonstop for almost two weeks. That makes catching live bait in our area all but impossible. Needless to say, fishing has been difficult in the last two weeks.

Most of us have been throwing artificial lures for quite some time. That is not a bad thing; it's just that a lot of people that guides take fishing sometimes need the help of live bait. I prefer to use a quarter ounce jig with some kind of fish body on it.

We have been catching a few snook, trout and the occasional redfish, but numbers are way down because of the weather. It looks like this weather system will break by the weekend, but it will take a few days for bait to return. When that happens, I think that the fish will come out of hiding. It has been awhile since I have had to give a lame fishing report but that's just the way it is folks. July is usually kick ass and I look forward to calmer seas. Have a happy 4th and I'll see you on the water.
