Estero Bay Report

Capt. Jon Fetter
December 3, 2015
Estero Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

The seatrout are really starting to make their way to the winter hangouts and are feeding on shrimp tipped jig heads or shrimp under popping corks. Anglers can work the deeper areas with the jig heads while the shallow grass flats in 3-5 feet can be worked with shrimp under popping corks. There are also plenty of ladyfish working the grass flats and they can be used for quality cut bait for redfish around the mangrove shorelines and oyster bars on high water. Remember to allow time for the scent to get out and attract the reds to you before moving on to another location. The passes are providing anglers with plenty of options including silver trout, whiting, jacks, small sharks, spotted seatrout, spanish mac's, and even pompano. The shallow's is where you will find the pompano and bouncing shrimp tipped jig heads or using short leaders under popping corks will work best. The remainder will be found in the deeper water and dragging jig heads with shrimp is the ticket.
