Early January Fishing Report

Capt. Ted Gibson
January 6, 2017
Naples - Saltwater Fishing Report

We have been out fishing the last two days. Popovic Party of 4 on January 5 and the Durst Party of 6 January 6. Both trips were from 8-12. We have been catching the end of the outgoing and beginning of the incoming tides the last couple days. I have been running about 3 miles offshore to catch pilchards on one of one of the nearshore wrecks before the charters which makes for an early start to my day, but they have been the key to catching the kings which we have been targeting. The king mackerel have been in the 20-25 pound range. We have been doing most of our mackerel fishing over live bottom within 9 miles of the beach. In addition to the Kingfish we have been catching Spanish Mackerel, Red Grouper (mostly undersized), Mangrove Snapper (to 14"), Triggerfish, and more! The light tackle Bottom fishing has been giving us some action while we have been waiting for the kings to bite. The Spanish mackerel have been around in decent numbers, but the highest concentrations have been in the same spots we have been catching the pilchards. We still have some January openings that we are trying to fill!
