These fish are just absolutely Badass! It is was an awesome day watching this beautiful fish kick my wife's ass. Great job grinding through the pain and getting it to the boat. #aftco #okuma #surfnturf #naplesfishingguide #mikesbaithouse #powerpole #cousinrods #smithoptics
Naples fishing is starting to get really good with tarpon, snook, redfish and trout being the primary focus. Pilchards can be found along the beaches and also mullet in the back bays. I've found my best action to be in the afternoon when the tide has a chance to fill in for redfish and snook. It is not uncommon for us to see sharks cruising around as well. Tarpon are starting to show up in small numbers as they migrate up the coast but with this weeks weather look for fishing to improve quickly. There are some smaller resident tarpon 15-30lbs that like to hang out tucked under the mangrove shorelines.
Below are a few photos from this past weekend where Luca Musico won his division catching snook redfish and trout during a local tournament on my boat.
Have a great rest of the week!

With the last front that came through and a big full moon the water temp has fallen back to the lower 70's. Bait fish have been the keys baits of choice but with cooler temps fish are still waiting for things to warm. Look for snook on the falling tide and redfish at the end of the incoming. Here is Carol Downey catching two beautiful redfish this week. With warmer temps look for things to start improving fast.
