Fishing here in Naples has been changing rapidly with the warmer water temps. The water temps have climbed between 76-79 degrees. Look for bait to start showing up on the beaches and near shore structure. Time to bust out those nets and get them ready for some serious bait fishing. Anyone looking for a good net stop into Mikes Bait House for the full line of Hump Back Nets. With warmer temps the big snook have been showing up around the passes. Redfish can be targeted using smaller baits, gulp new penny and also live shrimp under the mangroves where you can find a nice pocket to soak them. Today's action was pretty fierce catching two personal best and losing a monster snook. Look for the front to change the game a little midweek with cooler temps.

Fishing here in SWFL has been heating up with this amazing stretch of warm weather we are experiencing. I've been focusing on the start of the outgoing tide targeting very nice trout using a 1/4 oz jig with a 3inch New Penny Gulps. Also the special jigs of the month tied by Capt. Roan at Mike's Bait House have been working great for a variety of species. Bait has been showing up but with water temps still in the higher 60's don't be to anxious to jump away from the shrimp and jig fishing.
Now is the time to get all your summer gear ready for the big fish. TFO Rods and Florida Fishing Products are a great match for catching snook, redfish, trout and tarpon this summer. Stop down and see Mike at the Bait House to get your latest fishing gear.
And for all you boaters don't forget take this time to do the necessary repairs to your boat before things on the water are on fire. See Andrew and The Boat House for your boating needs.
