Naples and Marco Island Fishing Report
This as past week we have had some winter like conditions with morning lows in the 40s but it hasn’t slowed the fishing. Naples in Marco in Island offer such great Fishing opportunities that even on the windy days we can hide In the backcountry and enjoy the calm water. Snook have still been plentiful on the outside points and in the inshore creeks . Live bait is always preferred for a consistent bite but I have also been throwing some soft plastics. DOA makes a paddle tail (watermelon color) 3in with a 1/4oz jig head that makes for a great search bait ! On the colder days trout have been piling up in the troughs looking for easy meals. When jigging make sure your making bottom contact , raise your rod with an upward twitch always making sure to let the jig fall to the bottom . Look for your strike to come on the fall and be ready to set the hook. I also like to spice it up with a little dab a pro cure shrimp sent to get those finicky fish to hold on .
