The summer time bite around Naples and Marco island continues to produce a variety of inshore species . Snook are always on the top of my hit list but don’t be surprised to catch sea trout , jacks , Goliath grouper , snapper and redfish as they all intermix with each other . The mangrove snapper bite has been on fire. Great hard hitting fish but also so tasty on the grill. This bite will continue all summer so get out there and get M !!! The key to having great inshore action is live bait !!! I know I say it in every report but it’s true . Take the time to look around and locate where the the “right size“ bait fish are schooling up . This will insure you have a nonstop action packed inshore day on the water . We are still in that late afternoon rain pattern so get up early and hit it hard in the morning and by noon get back home and relax.
