Fort Myers Fishing Report - Perfect Conditons For The Weekend

Capt. Eric Anderson
October 29, 2015
Fort Myers - Saltwater Fishing Report

It has been very pleasant to be on the water during the day thanks to cloud cover combined with the tides, although it has been a bit windy. The rain has been great for keeping boat traffic to a minimum. The fishing has been good with most everything biting on something. On the first couple hours of the incoming tide the trout have been hitting top water in the deeper areas of the flats where they have been holding during the low tide. The Pompano fishing has been fair to good in all of the passes, you can see fish skipping around the boat but the turbid water in the gulf lately has reduced visibility and made has definitely it tougher for them to see your jig.

The redfish and snook action has been steady with some nice redfish in the 30" class showing up all over the back country. We have had good luck using flukes or any twitch bait fished on the edge of the mangroves the first half of the outgoing tide.

Look for the night fishing to improve as we get away from the full moon, it always makes the night bite tougher and can often have an adverse affect on the daytime fishing as well. Surface water temps have come down into the mid 70's and that has really helped pick of the fishing during the middle part of the day. Get out there this coming weekend and don't spend to much time in any one area, move around till you find some active fish.

The first week of November could very well be the very best of the fall. We are coming off the full moon so the fishing will get better in general and the night fishing will really pick up.
