Fort Myers Fishing Report for January 12, 2017

Capt. Wes Skinner
January 12, 2017
Fort Myers - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing the past couple weeks has been hit or miss. The wind and temperatures have played a large roll in the bite. Depending on mother natures cooperation, I've been trying to fish off of the beaches for Tripletail, Kingfish or Redfish. For this report I'll focus on Tripletail because that's where I've had my most success. The tripletail inhabits inshore, nearshore and offshore waters and often is found near floating weed lines, crab traps, channel markers and other structure. I sightfish while running a line of crab traps looking for floating fish near the buoy. Once I see a trap that has a Tripletail, I'll throw a small shrimp with the current drifting toward the fish. These fish will eat just about every time.

Not only are these fish fun to catch and mess around with but they are also great on the dinner table.
The tripletail's meat is white, sweet and flaky. Consider pan sauté, broil or baking them. They're delicious . One of the few fish I like.
