Naples Fishing Report 9/28/10

The last week has been really good for tarpon and snook in the Naples area. I have not seen the huge schools of bait yet that signal the Fall run of tarpon, but they have been feeding great anyways. Its still been a early morning and late afternoon bite on the tarpon. They are on the beaches eating glass minnows for about an hour each morning so its a short window, but on most mornings 6 hookups of 80-160lb fish have been normal. We are throwing DOA baitbusters and live ladyfish at these fish. Some days the bite has lasted till 10am which is nice. The afternoons Ive been using live mullet and ladyfish, its a longer bite lasting from around 5pm till dark. We have a great week of tarpon tides coming up starting October 8th and I have some days open so dont miss out. The snook are everywhere and the bigger fish are starting to show up more as the waters cool. Live pilchards have been the way to go on the snook. This is a picture of good buddy and guide Jeff Legutki this morning out of Naples.
