While redfish led the charge for the inshore light-tackle angler as the top target, for those looking to scratch out a fresh fish dinner, prospecting the shallows have been rewarded with solid catches of speckled trout, whiting, sheepshead and pompano. All quite easy to fool with a live shrimp or well-retrieved jig, and make for an outstanding meal either sautéed, broiled or fried. Look for this typical wintertime bite to further improve as we enter the 2015 calendar year.
As a Naples resident I take advantage of the lifestyle this area affords us. If you need referrals on the fishing guides, golf courses, lodging, spas, beach clubs or anything don't hesitate to contact me.
