Estero bay pre-frontal fishing

Capt. Greg Stamper
January 5, 2016
Estero Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

As the biggest cold front of the year came in on Monday, everyday before it worked out just fine. There was a lists of options depending on your needs this week from redfish, snook, and big jacks all the way down to bluefish, kingfish, and groupers. The diversity continued to be all over the place prefrontal. Snook patrolled the backcountry haunts along mangroves mostly taking cut baits on 2/0 circle hooks meant for redfish. Redfishing was good one day and bad the next with no stellar days in between. Most redfish were under the 22" mark with a few coming in upper slot. Certainly this cool weather and a better moon will help out the bite next week before our next cold front. Big Jacks moved in from time to time giving some excitement on light tackle to many anglers. Trout fishing was average with most fish between 13-21 inches in both Estero bay and along the passes on jigs tipped with shrimp.
