Estero Bay report

Capt. Jon Fetter
May 30, 2018
Estero Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

The weather has made it difficult for anglers the past few weeks but things should get back to normal and the fish should be eating. The redfish should be at all their early summer hangouts ready to feed on shrimp under popping corks or under floats. Check out the mangrove shorelines and oyster bars on high water then move to the nearby grass flats as the tide falls. There should be plenty of seatrout action over the grass flats near the passes. Bottom bouncing shrimp tipped jig heads or shrimp under popping corks will work fine. The nearshore shark fishing should really start heating up in the next few weeks. Anchor up start chumming get your baits out and wait. It shouldn't take long for them to show up. You might want to beef up your tackle a bit there are some large fish out there.
