What a fun week of inshore fishing in the Naples and Marco island area. The weather has been stellar and the fishing has been red hot ! The best thing about fishing the backcountry is the variety of fish that can be caught on any giving day. The Snook bite has been picking up everyday and I have been targeting them on the outside islands and deep in the backcountry.
Live bait has also shown back up on the beaches and near shore wrecks. This bait has really kept my anglers rods bent all day long . Take the time to catch it and you will not be disappointed . If your looking for some great fish for the grill pompano will not disappoint. I have been catching them deep in the backcountry where the creeks dump into the bays on the falling tides . I like my 3/4in tube jigs(light brown in color) tipped with a fish bite strip to get them going . This week look for gulf waters to keep warming up and more snook to be roaming the shallows . Get out and enjoy this great weather ! C u on the water !
