Estero Bay Report

Capt. Jon Fetter
April 8, 2016
Estero Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

This past week the fishing was tough for anglers. The poor tides coupled with the winds made it difficult to locate fish. There was some decent seatrout action on the grass flats in 3-5 feet of water near deeper channels. Shrimp under popping corks worked best. The passes provided anglers with some variety in terms of seatrout, ladyfish, sharks, and mackerel. Dragging shrimp tipped jig heads was the best method. The redfish bite continues to be difficult, but persistent anglers could find a few on the oyster bars and around the mangrove islands on high water. Shrimp on jig heads or cut ladyfish seemed to work best.
