Mid July Fishing for Naples and Marco

Capt. Roan zumFelde
July 16, 2015
Naples - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing still continues to be strong in the Naples/Marco area. Good catches of Snook early in the morning and late in the evening. Mid-day is for napping. Redfish catches on fly have been okay in the back country waters. While searching for Redfish, you will find a few sizes of Snook mixed in with the Redfish. Johnson Bay has been very productive on lower water. There are still Tarpon on the flats south of Naples and Marco mostly on the low incoming water. Still catching them on small fly patterns.

Off-shore fishing has been good for Grouper and Snapper at the 30+mile range. Large Mangrove Snapper and Yellow Tail have been on hard bottom and wrecks. Tournament Chum has been the key good catches of Yellow Tail. Catching white bait to add to the chum would be beneficial if you're not able to catch it, we have frozen white bait at the shop. Permit fishing has been good in the evenings when you can get out except the last few days we have had off-shore winds.

Fishing forecast for next week: Coming into a good moon phase for all species both morning and evening fishing should be red hot. We should have a very good snapper bite in the evening time both inshore and near shore. White bait or shrimp should do the trick.

Goodluck and good catching!

Target Species:

Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Snapper, Grouper
