Naples Fishing Report 10/17/09

As I type this we are getting the first big cold front of the year in Naples. It's blowing out of the northwest around 20 knots and the temps are dropping by the hour. It's forecast to be in the low 50's in the morning and then get right back into the 80's early next week. This front will help the fishing more than hurt it, it will be a few days before it calms down and the water clears. The water tempature was still 87 degrees which is hot, after this weather clears it will be 80-83 degrees. The fish will be hungry and more aggressive with the cooler water. Look for redfish and snook fishing to be great mid week and some trout and pompano should also be starting to show up in some of the deeper backwater spots. Tarpon should give us a few more shots this week early morning on the outgoing tides. This is also the time of year I start fishing the inshore wrecks for cobia, kingfish, barracuda, sharks and bonita. Chumming with live bait and light tackle is a blast on these shallow wrecks. It's also that time of year where season is upon us and it's getting busy. If you are thinking of going fishing don't hesitate to call, Thanksgiving and Christmas week are very busy and fill in quickly. Thanks and hope to fish with you o
in the future.
