The winter season is here and the fishing is great. Sheepshead are around the docks and bridges, use fiddler crabs of live shrimp, most bait shops will have fiddler crabs. You can find Speckle Trout, Redfish Snapper and Jacks in the holes or oyster bars, look for fast moving current. The other day on a charter we got into a school of croaker, small but good eating little fish, use small live shrimp. We also caught a couple of flounder, use a grub and bounce it on the bottom for them or fish a live shrimp on or very close […]

Use anything that you can retrieve fast, like top water plugs or crank baits, live baits work well. Good Luck and Good Fishing […]

Redfish are running in the passes to the Gulf.  Cobia, Speckled Trout, Mangrove Snapper, Mackerel, Snook, Redfish, and Jacks are biting everywhere in Matlacha Pass.  Bait is a little  hard to find in  Matlacha Pass, there are a few small schools of pilchards (white bait) sitting over deep water which makes it a little hard to catch unless you have a 10 or 12 foot cast net.
