Tarpon and Snook 11/10/09
I have been on the water for the last week and the fishing has been as good as it gets in Naples. It has been very windy making it tough to fish certain areas. The pilchards were tough in the mornings with the strong outgoing tide, but mullet and tarpon were every where you looked. It was another week of tarpon fishing early then finishing the mornings off with snook fishing. We managed one fish to the boat almost every morning and got numerous keeper snook to 33in. The last two days pilchards have been very east to get with the tides now coming in first thing. The tarpon are still hammering mullet, you just have to know where to look. This morning we mainly snook fished but did manage to get two big tarpon to explode on mullet. We caught close to 50 snook, big jacks, snapper, ladyfish and a small jewfish. I only had to fish three spots for this action and was less than a mile from the marina. If you are thinking about booking a trip for Thanksgiving or Christmas, dont hesitate to call 239 404 6255. Its really getting busy in Naples and the fishing is excellent.
