READY FOR SOME SPRING TIME FISHING

We had a good thing going this week then came the wind and rain and boy did it rain. Fishing was getting better each day as we hit our first eighty degree day in a long time. We never left Matlacha Pass the entire week for a couple of reasons, early in the week there was no need to,…

COULD THIS BE THE WEEK

For far too long now this report has sounded like a broken record every week were we spend more time talking about how cold the weather has been rather than how good the fishing is. Last week I changed focus and looked ahead to upcoming days of warmer spring fishing. I fully thought that by the time this week…

Another Cold Week in the Books

Over the few days of favorable weather there were reports of trout and sheepsheads and a few hungry redfish. Trout…

The waters are coming to life with the warming as dolphin are everywhere again, birds are active and we come across pods of two to three…

Thawing Out in Southwest Florida

Dead Snnok in Pineland After a long stretch of unprecedented cold weather we are finally thawing out in southwest Florida. As many have already reported our snook population took a pretty hard hit as unknown numbers succumbed to the cold. Early reports suggest the number statewide is very high but too early to get an accurate count. We should…

Too Cold To Fish In Southwest Florida

I know compared to what’s going on to our north our weather probably isn’t that bad, but with temperatures expected to dip into the low thirties again tonight it really hurts our fishing in sub-tropical southwest Florida. Its funny looking back to my first couple years of guiding professionally, as a Florida boy I did not like the cold…
