Report for Naples, Marco Island and the Ten Thousand Islands

Capt. Matt Hoover
February 12, 2007
Marco Island - Saltwater Fishing Report

Plenty To Do

The effects of winter are finally here. Water temperatures have dipped to the mid sixties. Fronts have been passing through Florida at regular intervals. In fact it is raining as I type. Itís not all bad news. There have been fish to be caught.

I have been catching sheepshead, black drum, and an occasional redfish by dropping chunks of shrimp into deeper holes and small rivers with hard bottom. Snapper, jacks, mackerel and even hungry snook can be had with this method.

Ladyfish, mackerel, bluefish, trout and a few large black drum have been dominating the grass flats. I have been catching these fish using quarter ounce jigs. We have been catching a few pompano jigging the flats as well.

I found a few bonus tarpon this week too. I am not sure if they are resident fish or a precursor to the annual migration. I have seen tarpon come in to the area in a big way in February in the past.

Actually, winter has been pleasant this year, but I am looking forward to chasing the giant tarpon that come to us in the spring. Until then, there is plenty of fish to keep us busy. Iíll see you on the water.
