Things are finally starting to feel like summer here in Naples! The winds are calming down a bit, the gulf water is getting nice and clear, air temps are getting downright hot come mid morning or so. The clear, warm water has really turned on the fishing in the last couple weeks! Snook have definitely been the main attraction, and wherever you can find clean water running into a shoreline with any kind of structure on it, you can bet there will be some hungry snook around. Fishing with live pilchards, anglers in the last couple weeks have landed 20 or more snook almost every morning, with a couple mornings totaling over 40 snook! Most of these fish are in the 20-30 inch range, with a few fish coming in over 30. Even though the snook are gobbling up most of our baits (which we aren’t complaining about), there are still some other species getting in on the action. Mangrove snapper, jack crevalle, small barracuda, redfish, sharks, and tarpon are all taking the bait as well!
