Report for Naples, Marco Island and the Ten Thousand Islands

Capt. Matt Hoover
March 13, 2006
Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

Spring Break

Cold fronts and heavy winds have been keeping us on our toes. Some of us have been lucky enough to score live bait by throwing nets in deep water. There have been some impressive days in the past few weeks.

Water temperatures barely hit the seventy degree mark this past week. The numbers are climbing and all hell is about to break loose. In the meantime, snook and redfish are starting to come out of the woodwork. I have been catching some live bait and have been catching a few slot sized snook and redfish by concentrating on points and banks with good water movement. We had two impressive snook this past week as well. One fish snook was twenty two pounds and we caught another one a couple of days later that was seventeen. These fish usually indicate that there is a transition happening. Old man winter is starting to let go of his grip. The have been a few large tarpon caught in the last few weeks too. That means that the big push of fish is just around the corner.

The heavy wind has been the major factor this past week. It dictates where you can fish. It takes a little knowledge and creativity, but overall. Fishing has been good.

There are still plenty of sheepshead and trout to fall back on. The jacks are starting to show up. If you run and gun and mix up yo0ur methods of fishing, a great day on the water can be had by all. Iíll see you on the water
