Estero Bay Back Country

Capt. Rick Featherstone
September 1, 2011
Fort Myers - Saltwater Fishing Report


Snook fishing since the heavy rains has gone up several notches. Live bait fishermen will find using pinfish and scaled sardines near oyster bar corners where the tide is moving will produce best. Fly folks will have good sucess with white decivers or chartruse surf candy fly's twitched dying bait fish style in a live chummed area.

Redfish have been most active on the higher tides under the mangroves. Cut bait such as ladyfish will produce large fish. Scaled sardines and pinfish drifted as far back as possible and allowed to move with the tide will bring lots of strikes. Half & half fly's in pinfish color will produce the most action. Lots of blind casting into the open spots seems best right now.

Take care,

Capt. Rick
