It’s been an action packed week of fishing around the Naples & Marco Island areas. I have switched gears a bit and dialed into the pompano and redfish bite. I am finding good pompano on the incoming tides around the passes. Shrimped tipped jigs are always a sure bet but I am also having success with bright colored (pink/chartreuse) wiggle jigs. Slow retrieve making sure to be bouncing the bottom will ensure a good bite. Redfish have also been chewing inshore and in the backcountry on the morning incoming tides. Live pilchards, cut mullet and lady fish chunks have all been great baits to get them feeding good. Get out early and beat the heat. Good luck !!!
