Latest Fishing Report

As the water continues to heat up so too does the fishing for anglers in and around Estero Bay.  The nearshore waters are teaming with spanish mackerel, ladyfish, and jacks.  Casting shrimp tipped jig heads will work best.  There are some big sharks lurking in the 16-20 feet of water.  Anchor up, chum and wait for the fun to start.  You might want to add a small piece of wire leader since there are some big ones out there.  The passes are holding ladyfish, jacks, small sharks, and even a few pompano.  Bottom bouncing shrimp on jig heads or shrimp under popping corks is the ticket.  There has been a decent redfish bite in the shallows around the oyster bars and mangrove edges on high water.  Look for good tidal flow near the passes.
