It's still windy, but we're managing

Capt. Greg Stamper
December 8, 2015
Estero Bay - Saltwater Fishing Report

Estero bay had another week of strong winds that continued to keep the flow of incoming tides at bay throughout most of the week. Once the tides started winning the battle and water got over the one foot mark the bite began. Redfishing was ok with some nice fish caught up to 30". Snook fishing was better at the North end of the bay, as was the water clarity. Snook up to 33" took both live pilchards and pinfish drifted around mangrove blowdowns. Trout, bluefish, pompano, and some nice size jacks continue to show up in the passes and river mouths all happy to take a shrimp tipped jig. Sheepshead are definitely starting to come in from their offshore haunts as they prepare for the cold weather to come and their spawn. If your targeting these fish use small hooks usually only with a piece of shrimp and a split shot. Targeting the docks, shorelines that drop off quickly usually with rocks, and oyster bar edges will work well for the sheepies.
