Ft. Myers Back Bays and Nearshore Wrecks Fishing Report!

Fort Myers - Saltwater Fishing Report

In the back bays the water temps dropped a few degrees with these cold fronts passing through. The good thing is the fish hasn't mind the weather change. Look for creeks and canal systems where the water temps are warmer and this is where you'll find your redfish and snook. There's plenty of whitebait around so get plenty for chumming up the fish. The sheepshead are gathering around the oyster beds and shorelines. Shrimp is the go to bait with small hooks and 20# leader. If trout is what your after look for clean water in 3-4ft on a flat.

Nearshore wrecks are providing my anglers with good action. Sheepshead and snapper are the main targets with spanish mackeral, pompano and grouper mixed in. Live whitebait or a jighead tipped with shrimp are the bait of choice.
