We are in a strange time, what I mean by that is that we have not really had a winter, so the fish are not really where they should be right now. So here is the report for February 10th, 2013:
Inshore: its a great time for inshore fishing. Recently the Pompano have started to come in, and people are using pink, and chartreuse tube jigs to catch them. Plus, since the water is staying warmer there are still some Snook around. In addition to the typical colder water fish like Redfish, Spotted Seatrout, and Sheepshead.
Tarpon season is either here, or almost here. February fourth, a 100 pound Tarpon was caught and released by one of the Captains at our marina. This is the earliest large Tarpon in recent memory.
Offshore: Grouper is closed, but now its Snapper season! Live shrimp will get you you limit of Mangrove and Lane Snapper offshore in the hard bottom. King Mackerel and Amberjacks are out there also.
If you have questions about fishing in Naples in February please give us a call! If you want to book a charter, we can do that for you also. Tight lines and screaming drags, Captain Pete's.
