Naples - Saltwater Fishing Report

Things have been crazy lately with great catches and lots of happy anglers. Bait has been tough moving up and down the coast but with some good throws you can load up the wells with some pilchards. I've been hitting a few spots early for trout action using jigs tipped with shrimp and pilchards on a split shot. Snook can be found in the passes and are still acting a little timid before smashing a bait. Here is Heidi catching one of many snook she caught for the day.

Naples Fishing Forecast:

Look for the winds to die down by midweek but water temps should continue to climb. Look for Redfish at the end of the incoming tides. Snook in the passes and trout on mangrove shorelines with good water flow. Things should be heating up before the arrival of the Full Moon on the 12th.

Target Species:

Snook Redfish Tarpon Trout Snapper
