Good Weather and Good Fishing

Capt. Ted Gibson
February 8, 2017
Naples - Saltwater Fishing Report

We were out on charters Sunday and Monday. Fished in about 45' of water both trips over live bottom. We tried closer areas both days, but nothing was happening. We got into plenty of Lane Snapper to make dinner and caught Red Grouper to 19 and 15/16". Besides the bottom fish we have been running free lines for whatever happens to be cruising up high in the water column. We have had trouble bringing the fish hitting the free lines to the boat. On Sunday we hooked 3 kingfish, but went 0/3 and had one all the way up to the boat. Monday we had a Cobia come into the chum and had him on for a few seconds, but lost him. Its pretty frustrating when it happens like that, but sometimes the fish just get away. Other than a little fog in the morning the weather has been great the last few days and yesterday I even got a chance to fish Estero Bay with my friend Captain Josh of www.FishSouthWestFL.com. He put me on a really nice redfish plus some snook and trout. We still have plenty of openings! Contact us today to book your charter.
