Estero Bay Report

Capt. Jon Fetter
July 7, 2018
Estero Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

The hot days means an early start for those anglers looking for a good bite. Fish the mangrove shorelines and oyster bars on higher water. Pinfish or shrimp tipped jig heads will work best for redfish. The grass flats in 3-5 feet of water are holding seatrout and shrimp under a popping cork will work just fine. Anglers looking for snook action should pound the mangrove edges with good moving water using jerkshads or top water plugs. The passes are a good place to look for action, mackerel, whiting, silver trout, and even the occasional pompano are feeding on jig heads tipped with shrimp. The shark action is off the chain in 15-20 feet of water. Anchor up get a chum slick going, get some baits on the water,and wait. It won't take long for them to show and keep you busy for as long as you like.
