It’s been another rock solid week of inshore fishing in south Florida. Not sure where to start as the action around Naples and Marco island continues to be action packed . Cooler morning have shifted my attention to redfish and sea trout . Sea Trout have been staging up on the flats and the deeper holes . The main thing you have to look for is water movement or current . These fish like to be lazy(or conserve energy) and let there food get pushed to them . Once we get a few good trout on the line we Can dial into a good bite . The red fishing has been productive on the high incoming tides . I like to search for creek mouths In the backcountry and these can tiny and hidden by the mangroves so Its important to really study the landscape . I think that little bit of water movement in and out of these creek mouths get the redfish and snook congregating. Remember it’s important to get a good cast as close to the mangroves these fish like to run just underneath them . A live pilchard with a pop N cork(about 2ft up) pined tight to the bushes is a deadly combo for getting these game fish on the line . Get out get M !!!
