Fishing Report February 10, 2012

With air temperatures higher than normal, the water temperatures remain high too. Currently the water is 71 degrees at my dock in Chokoloskee, which is 5 degrees higher than the average. Because of this, the fishing bite remains solid. We are currently taking advantage of the mild days by fishing both the outside flats and passes, along with the back country rivers and mangrove shorelines. This has produced a nice variety of fish for us. Recently we had out Jim, Jack, and John for a nice mix bag catch of Sheepshead from the nearshore reefs, and Redfish & Speckled Trout in the back country river mouths and oyster bars. Brian and Rick got into everything from Speckled Trout, Redfish, Black tip Shark, Silver trout, & Sheepshead. Lou and Chad were out for 4 straight days and they got into everything from back water Gag Grouper up to 26", some big fat Speckled Trout up to 22", Snook, tons of Redfish, Pompano, Bonnethead  Shark, and a lot more. Come Book a charter and we'll get you hooked up!

Despite a few minor cold fronts, the fishing action remains solid. Speckled Sea Trout fishing opened up the beginning of the month. For table fare we have been targeting them along with Redfish, Sheepshead, Black Drum, Pompano, Mackerel, Silver Trout, and some nice Tripletail. For Sportfish, the Snook bite has been encouraging as they migrate into the deeper back county for the winter. Of course for those with children or anyone looking for non-stop action, the Ladyfish and Jack bite is border line ridiculous! There is something for everyone to catch this time of year! Below are a few recent charter photos of Paul with one of many Reds he caught, Jill with her 22.5lb Triple Tail, and Kristy with one of her keeper Trouts.

Fishing Report January 4, 2012

This past week has been another productive one. The wind blew real hard the middle of the week which effected the size of our catch some, but the catch quantities remained solid. The beginning of the week we had winter jackets on in the morning, but by the end of the week we came close to breaking record high temps. Van and Reid hit some more monster Snook and big Reds, The Souci's got into lots of Reds, Trout, and a good amount of other fun fish. The Haege group caught a lot of Snook, Black Drum, Rat Reds, Sheepshead, Trout and many others. The Wicklunds got into a bunch of BIG Reds and BIG Trout on Friday. Capt Brandon and Capt Bob also put the Jeck crew and Roselle crew into some fantastic fishing and brought back a lot of Reds, Sheepshead, and Black Drum.

The below photos were all taken this past week

Fishing Report December 19th 2011

This past week we have seen some amazing fishing. We had the best Snook bite since the big Freeze of 2010 that killed so many of our local Snook. One trip last week we caught 8 Snook that were between 30"-33" plus one that was 35" and one Monster 40" Snook. That same day oversized Redfish were caught up to 29". Many smaller Snook are being caught in the 18"-25" range, along with some fat Speckled Trout, Redfish, Flounder, and more. The current preferred bait of choice are live Pilchards, live shrimp under popping corks, and soft plastic baits. The below photos were all taken on Tuesday.
