Still crushing it

Capt. Greg Stamper
December 17, 2015
Estero Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

The offshore and near shore bite continued for another week as a plethora of bait continues to stick around. Cobia, kingfish, tripletail and snapper fishing was good with most fish caught in 25 feet of water or more. The backcountry bite was also good on incoming tides that stayed somewhat clean. During the "below mean low water" times redfish, trout, and sheepshead could be caught on cut lady fish and shrimp on either a popping cork or jig thrown along the channel edges. When the water was low and the wind blew it did turn up the bottom pretty good in some areas so finding cleaner water was still something to think about all week. Quite often we fished areas that were silty, and almost muddy with areas only a mile away being very clean. Snook fishing continued to be good in the rivers, as well as for jacks, trout, and some snappers chasing the same white bait meant for a snook. Last but not least the passes continue to hold a bunch of different species including a lot of small sharks this week again.
