Southwest Florida - Naples, Marco, 10,000 Islands

Ten Thousand Islands - Saltwater Fishing Report

Winter in the 10K

Fishing has been pretty good to say the least. Our December has been a mild one at that, keeping the fishing pretty consistent. Water temps are in the high 60's to 70 degrees, and fairly clean.

Tuesday the 12th, I had the pleasure to fish with Tim Rutledge and friend Jerry from St.Louis. Flyfishing was the game and the conditions were good. Tim could cast the fly as well as anyone, could put it where it needed to be, when it needed to be! We caught several nice snook up to 6 lbs, and hooked and lost five redfish up to 30". Either from lifting the rod on the hookset, or trying to get the fish on the reel creating to much slack. Experience is the best teacher, he knew he made the mistakes and taught hinself a major lesson!

Wednesday, I fished Marshall Demott, girlfriend Diane and father Richard. Today we were baitfishing looking for meat. We had beautiful pilchards and proceeded to fish deeper banks with undercut banks with moving current. Throughout the day we caught numerous Goliath Grouper up to 40 lbs, many small gag grouper with one 23" that went into the box. Several undersize snook and one 26.5". This was Diane's first time catching snook and caught the biggest one of the day. We also caught mackeral, snapper, and jacks and ladyfish. Great day over all and this crew was the kind a captain loves to have. Great attitudes with alot of enthusiasm and a great sence of humor!

The weather is holding out and the fishing is still consistent. Get out on the water before winter rears its head and fishing starts to taper off. Until the next time, tight lines and screaming drags to all.
