Latest Fishing Report

This past week the fishing in and around Estero Bay was very good with both size and variety. The redfish bite is steady around the oyster bars and mangrove islands on moving water. Shrimp tipped jig heads and shrimp under floats seemed to work best. Anglers should work the flats around these bars and islands on lower tides as the fish will move off and feed there. Snook are still around and will take free lined pins on 3/0 circle hooks thrown under the floating docks near the passes. Sea trout are staring to show up on the grass in 2-5 feet and good old shrimp under popping corks will work best. Anglers will also pick up plenty of ladyfish with this set-up. Sheepshead are making their presence know in the backbay around structure and will take pieces of shrimp on #1 circle hooks with split shot.
