Estero Bay Report

Capt. Jon Fetter
November 19, 2015
Estero Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

The wind combined with the low water this past week made the fishing a little tougher in and around Estero Bay. The best chances for redfish were up around the oyster bars and mangroves on higher water using shrimp tipped jig heads. Cut ladyfish on 2/0 circle hooks worked pretty good as well. Spotted seatrout are starting to show up on the grass flats in 3-5 feet of water and shrimp under a popping will work best. The passes are loaded with pompano, ladyfish, whiting, silver trout, small sharks, and jacks. Bottom bouncing shirmp tipped jig heads seemed to be the go-to method for the pompano in about 5 feet of water while the silver trout, whiting, and ladyfish were all in deeper water.
