Naples Fishing is on fire right now. Lots of snook, redfish, and big jacks crushing pilchards and live shrimp. With the lingering redtide around pay attention to your bait wells to keep your baits alive. Fishing in the backwaters from Naples to Marco has provided some amazing action. This mornings trip included 20snook up to 28inches and 15 redfish with most being in the slot. Focus on mangrove shorelines with good flow and big mullet to find these fish. Here is Mike from Mikes Bait House taking a quick lunch break to bend a rod. Look for fishing to keep improving this week.

January has been a great month for fishing here in SWFL. Snook have been enjoying the warmer temps along with redfish and trout. Tripletail have been short in numbers but big in size offshore. Playing the tide is key to finding the fish. Look for trout on the outgoing tide using jigs (Mikes Bait House specials) tipped with shrimp and also pilchards with a split shot on the bottom. Trout will be holding in troughs and deep holes with grass on the bottom. Snook have been in the passes and have been blasting pilchards. Redfish have been tough to find but spending some time stalking a gin clear shoreline will produce but be Patient. Look for things to change as the weekends weather is going to bring in a cold front. Bust out and Catch a Big One.
