Naples Fishing Charter – Fishing Report

Naples Fishing Charter ReportThe weather continues to be a big factor in Naples offshore fishing. The Gulf of Mexico waters are warming up nearly a degree a day and this causes the fish to feed long and often. These Illinois anglers went out with us and found the fishing very good. The water was extremely calm and clear and that makes mangrove snapper fishing very challenging. Mangrove snappers have very good eyesight so on bright days and in clear water southwest Florida fisherman have to come up with ways to fool the crafty mangroves. We drop down in line size and use really oily baits, such as sardines, to incite the snappers into a feeding frenzy.

King Mackerel will show up this week and we will be targeting them very soon.

Fishing Report – Great Weather and Fishing

February 25, 2011 Fishing ReportIt is hard to say which is hotter right now in Naples. The last two weeks have brought consistent daytime highs in the low 80’s and limits of outsize mangrove snapper. The fantastic south Florida weather has created optimum offshore charter fishing with clear water and calm Gulf of Mexico waters. Our boats are continuing mangrove snapper and grouper daily, even though the grouper season is closed until March 1. We have landed several nice red and gag grouper while fishing with live shrimp in 85 feet of water, southwest of Naples.

Now is the time to take a Naples deep sea fishing charter and take advantage of the snapper fishing because as the waters warm the snapper disperse.

Naples Deep Sea Fishing – Mangrove Snapper

Naples Deep Sea FishingMangrove snapper fishing remains the hot fish for deep sea fishing charters departing from Naples.  Sport-fishermen are finding the mangroves loaded up on ledges and rock piles offshore from the southwest Florida coast.  These fish have incredibly good eyesight so it requires lots of tricks to fool these wily fish into taking a bait. We often rip crippled herring lures in bright sun and the reflective flash will often send the fish into a feeding frenzy.  Once the fish become frenzied it is easy to catch them but if you allow them to relax the bite will be over.  There is no guaranteed way to be successful because every day is different and the conditions always present different challenges.  Try our style of offshore mangrove snapper fishing soon, while the bite lasts!
