Just want to start by saying I hope everyone had a great thanksgiving with family & friends. The inshore fishing around the Naples and Marco island areas has been red hot! The weather has been absolutely beautiful with cool early morning and then warming up to the 80s mid afternoons , just doesn’t get any better than that .With this said that means water temps are rising and the snook are getting very hungry. Also, there has been a good sea trout and pompano bite going on . This time of year a 3/4 oz jig head with a 3in gulp new penny color will always get them fired up . The pompano have been eating wiggle jigs( pink or chartreuse in color , tipped with a fish bite strip. With the light east winds we have been having , Live bait has been easy to get on the beach’s and near shore wrecks. Load up that live well with bait and get after it! C u on the water !!
