Fort Myers - Saltwater Fishing Report

The water temps went from 65 degrees to 74 degrees in a matter of two weeks. with that being said the fishing in Estero Bay has been steady. If your fishing the middle part of the bay you should be doing pretty good. The sheepshead bite is picking up along with redfish,snook and trout. Look for full oyster bars and moving current and you will find the fish. While fishing the oysters don't forget to cast on the opposite side of the boat where you'll find trout,pompano and other species. Were using a small piece of fresh shrimp with a #1 mutu-lite hook and a #4 split shot for the sheepshead. For the reds and reds I like going to the popping cork with live shrimp or pilchards.

The grouper fishing off the nearshore wrecks off of Ft. Myers Beach is still going strong with a a few snapper and flounder mixed in. Live white bait pinned to the bottom will entice these fish. Tightlines and hope this weather pattern holds up.
