Nothing beats the solitude of backcountry, with its endless opportunities. In the Naples and Marco Island areas it’s a short ride into the labyrinth of mangroves island where our gamefish call home. I always start my mornings with loading up my live-well with nice hardy live baits. These baits are what I call backcountry gold! Summer is in full effect and gulf temperatures are warm & this is perfect climate to target loads of snook. Redfish to are showing up in good numbers and are hanging right with the snook. A good cast close to the mangroves will get your heart racing as either game fish could exploded on your bait at any time. Be ready to set that hook and the fight is on! Get out there and get M!
