Naples and Marco island fishing continues to produce great inshore action. Big snook are starting to move into the near shore islands. My favorite method to getting these big snook out of there hiding spots is a well placed cast with a big live bait (pilchard). I like to beef up my leaded line to 40lb this time of year as these big fish once hooked will tend to head right for the bushes. Redfish have been mixed in with the snook so be ready for anything. This week most of my redfish action has been on the higher incoming tides. These fish have been really close to the Mangroves so make sure to get you baits as tight to the cover as you can . If you are Successful in catching allot of live bait don’t hesitate to chum heavy to bring these game fish out of the hiding spots. Not only will this get them and other species of fish feeding but it will speed up your fishing action. See u on the water !!!
