2019 has started off busy, the fishing charters spent some time hiding from the wind and trying to keep warm, while catching a ton of fish. The action has been great with a wide variety of fish. The most consistent species are snapper, sheepshead, redfish, and black drum. We are still catching snook and a lot of jack crevalle as well. The shelling trips have also been excellent this time of year. Our very low winter tides mixed with breezy days during the cold fronts have combined for excellent shelling conditions. Multiple fishing charters lately have been half fishing and half shelling, hard to beat bringing home fresh fish dinner and some beautiful souvenirs all from the same trip.
The weather has been the normal winter pattern with temperatures averaging in the 70’s and cold fronts blowing in on a regular basis dropping the temperatures into the 60’s. The water is also clear and beautiful, making for an excellent time to be out fishing in Southwest Florida. Call today to book your custom fishing charter for an experience you won’t forget.
