The Summer inshore and backcountry fishing is in full effect in the Naples & Marco island areas . The mangrove snapper bite has been on fire. I have been concentrating on the rivers and passes with good heavy current flow. Best to dial back your leaders to 25lb fluorocarbon as they can be very leader shy. To get these snappers fired up I like chum heavy and then cast a live pilchard Right into the frenzy and hold on ! If your looking for a drag screamer there have been some big jacks cruising around the shallows . Look for them to be moving around the outside points that have good current on them . Snook are all over the from the backcountry to the beaches feeding on all the small schools of bait . Morning falling tides have been the best bet for some great summer time action !! C U on the WATER !!
