Naples Tarpon, Snook, Redfish 10/1/11

Capt. Chris McCubbin
October 1, 2011
Naples - Saltwater Fishing Report

Fishing has really gotten good in the Naples area the last few weeks. The full moon a few weeks ago combined with a nw wind got the mullet moving and the tarpon showed off pretty good for a few days. We managed to hook 10 tarpon and got 2 snook over 20lbs. Then it was back to redfish and snook in the backwaters till this past week. Our pilchards are good size now and easy to catch and the redfishing has been very good. We have been getting anywhere from 5-20 reds to 28" depending on how much we fish for them. This week I ran four trips and we went 3-13 on tarpon to 70lbs, 100 snook with 3 over 20lbs and a good amount of redfish to 26". This small cold front that blew through over night should really help things get moving out on the beaches and in the backwaters.

Naples Fishing Forecast:

October is typically an excellent month to fish here in Naples as our Fall bait migration happens. Tarpon, sharks, bonita and mackeral will go crazy on the beaches before heading south for the Winter. Trout will return to the backwater as waters cool and snook and redfish will continue to be hot.

I have spent my whole life fishing and learning the great fishery we have in Naples, Fl. Im known for being very easy going, hard working and great with all skill levels.
