BlueLineFishing - SW Florida Fishing Reports


Feeling very grateful for a completely different August than last year. Our water is clean and beautiful plus the fishing remains excellent; just about the opposite from last years struggles. Our fishing is second to none right now with almost every species being an option.

Fishing charters wanting to target fish for dinner have been very successful with mangrove snapper and spinach mackerel. There are plenty of snapper around and they can be caught by fisherman of any skill level with a little patience. They also make a delicious dinner and are ready to cook after I fillet them for you.

Many fishing charters recently have been getting their inshore slams with ease. This means catching snook, redfish, and trout in the same day. We are seeing huge schools of sea trout, lady fish, and jack crevalle chasing bait around making for non stop action and excitement. There has been a ton of success targeting redfish in the mangroves. They have moved into the area in full force and we have been catching everything from 20″ redfish to well over 30″. Snook are still near the passes in huge numbers and sizes. Last but not least there are still juvenile and large tarpon in the area. They are not here in huge numbers but we have still been seeing tarpon caught with success.

Whatever route you choose to go for your fishing charter you won’t be disappointed. The fish will come early and often this time of year, so book now.
