Fishing is Hot!

Capt. Jim Conant

Matlacha - Saltwater Fishing Report

Matlacha, Pine Island sound fishing is one hot!

I have been fishing Matlacha Pass and Pine Island sound with great success for my clients. We've been catching a lot of different species of fish inshore here are some of the fish we've caught, Spanish Mack, trout, different species of jacks, pompano, snapper, flounder, snook, red fish, croakers, sharks, sheep's head, ladyfish and grouper. The inshore waters are averaging 72 degrees the winds are from the North and the days have been mostly cloudy in the mornings. I wish I could have sunny mornings every trip to warm the waters up on time with the incoming tide but that would be a perfect world. My recipe for successful trips in both Matlacha pass and Pine Island sound for the past 3 weeks are targeting the flats at first light wherever I see mullet on the flats that's where I expect to see the Reds come into the shallows to warm up as the tide is coming in. If the tide is already in by morning light fish off the mangroves where the sun is hitting.

After the first couple hours of that I head out looking for life on the water in all different areas all around Pine Island and once I see it, we fish it and boy is it fun!

Buy a couple hundred shrimp and have a blast in several spots we've caught numerous species of fish one after another.

If you're ready to go fishing give me a call to plan your trip so we can try and catch the tides right. If you're a Veteran with proof I have the best prices around and I guarantee it. I'm also on Facebook at Jimbo's Charters.
