Southwest Florida Fishing Report - Bonita Springs to Captiva

Capt. John GiddyUp-Bunch
September 5, 2005
Fort Myers - Saltwater Fishing Report

By the time I return from La (leaving today 9/6/05) the early goings of the fall migration South brings promise for Cobia, Kingfish, and Tarpon. I'll be back on 9/15/05.

As for the Labor Day fishing report in and around Pine Island, there are various floating dead fish from Red Tide. Mullet, Pinfish, Redfish, and Tarpon. It stinks around York and Chino Island.

Gas prices have created a whole new challenge for the Professional Saltwater Fishing Guide in Fl (and everywhere else). The days of "scouting" before a trip are a thing of the past.

I will promise everyone who reads this weak report the following. If I cannot bring you reports of substance in the future, I'll no longer furnish crap like this for you to read.

I out the door for La. I'm only scared of 2 things in this life. Snakes and Dentist with Red Hair! "GiddyUp!"
