Fishing is Hot in Southwest Florida

Finally we are getting our daily summer rains in southwest Florida. This is a relief as the rains have dropped both the air and water temperatures that were becoming uncomfortably hot for both fish and anglers…

Tarpon are still around and with a lot less pressure than over the previous months.

Summer is a great time for shark fishing the waters around Pine Island, inshore there are plenty of bulls, lemons and blacktips.

With the summer rains our redfish bite should become more consistent. Most of our fish are coming from Matlacha Pass under the mangroves on high water.

Trout and Spanish mackerel are still in Charlotte Harbor and Pine Island Sound. The best bet is to look for clear water over deeper grass flats on the incoming tide.
If you don’t mind a little heat the summer is a great time to fish in southwest Florida. The crowds are gone and the fishing can be pretty good.
Have a great July 4th holiday weekend and please stay safe on the water.
