Estero Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishings been good for Estero bay, the beaches of Fort Myers, and the associated near shore waters. Snook, redfish, trout, pompano, and sheepshead are just a few of the backbay targets available now. Snook have definitely moved to their winter haunts over the last week or so, showing up in good numbers throughout the backbay. Redfishing has been good on both livebaits and artificial, and the typical rat reds come and go in full force. Trout finally began showing up as the salinity levels got back to what they enjoy combined with large amounts of rain bait throughout the region. We picked up some decent sheepshead this week all on accident while redfishing around oyster-bars and mangrove shorelines. Nearshore has been good, especially as the tide lines hold tons of bait. Bonita, cobia, mackeral, and tarpon have been mixed in through it. Kingfish have shown up as well as ive seen a few free jumpers but haven't targeted them. Tight lines and Happy Turkey day!
