Cobia Kingfish Snook

Capt. Rick Featherstone
October 12, 2008
Fort Myers - Saltwater Fishing Report


This is my favorite time of year. With the fall bait migration in full swing its hard to focus on one species of fish to target.

Fishing in Estero Bay on our Ranger Phantom (Little Magic) this week we had a great time. Using scaled sardines and pinfish snook were really eating well. Docks with moving water held big fish but the most fun was near moving water points that had deep water. Lots of bites and doubles were common with Snook up to 28". There are also schools of Jacks and redfish up on the flats if you like to pole and stalk fish.

Offshore over heavy structure using block chum and mixing in live threadfin the bite is really on fire. Sharks, Cuda, Jacks, Cobia, Kingfish, Snapper were all caught on a four hour charter yesterday. Twenty one Cobia were released! We wore out three X-Rap's casting to Jacks and Kings while there as well.

Weather is good and fishing is great. Have fun.
