December inshore/backcountry fishing in Naples and Marco island is off to a red hot start. The weather has just perfect with highs in the 70s and light winds . Low tides in the mornings have the fish in tight groups looking for easy meals . Snook, tarpon, jacks , sea trout & redfish have all been in the mix so be ready for anything . I’ve been using live bait (pilchards) with a 2/0 J hook and a 3ft piece of monofilament to trick those weary game fish. Most of my attention has been out on the beaches and nearshore island where the water is clean and green. The fishing will continue to get better and better this week until we are expected to have a cold front on Friday that will chill things down a bit . Hope everybody’s getting ready for the holidays and I am looking forward to seeing y’all on the water!!
