There has been a solid snook and redfish bite all week around the Naples and Marco island area. I am still focusing on the outside points where there is heavy cover and a good current. Most of my action has been on the higher incoming tides and drifting live bait(pilchards) close to the structure. If you're looking for a good trout bite head deeper into the backcountry and concentrate on the deeper holes with good current flow. I have been using a 1/4oz chartreuse jig head with a 3in DOA paddle tail. Once you locate a good bite stay as far off the school and make long cast as this will help keep the fish from being spooked. Hope u get get out and enjoy this great winter fishery!!
