Latest Fishing Report
The nearshore fishing continues to be really good for anglers in SW Florida. The passes are holding ladyfish, jacks, small sharks, and even pompano. Shrimp tipped jig heads will work best or shrimp under popping corks. The nearshore reefs are packed with options. Ladyfish, jacks, spanish mackerel, snapper, small grouper, blue runners, and whiting are all there and feeding. Bottom fishing with shrimp or cut bait will work fine. There are also some sharks swimming around so put a chunk bait on the bottom and let it sit. If you want to target these sharks, chum the water and put out a few rods. Those looking for the ultimate sports fish can target the silver king which are in the nearshore waters as well. Free-lining threadfin herrings is your best bet. Locate the tarpon and position your boat and wait for them to come to you.
