Fishing Reports by Captain Jesse Karen

About The Author:

Company: Mad Snookn

Area Reporting: Marco Island, Naples and The Everglades

Bio: A typical day out on the water, is never so typical. We start out with a leisurely ride through the backcountry in Mangrove lined channels. I almost always see MANATEE, usually see big ALLIGATORS and don\'t be surprised to see a BALD EAGLE or two! The water is golden brown, typically too dark to see through until we start stalking fish in the shallows. Almost immediately, bait will be jumping, tarpon will be rolling and gulping air and snook will be \"Popping\" the surface catching bait. I call my fishing experience unique. I do however understand the urge for fresh fish, and if you want it fresh, I\'ll get it for you! I have found a reliable, fun and action packed way to catch some of the most sought after game fish and I am anxious to share it with you. In as little as 4 hours we can catch Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Trout, Snapper, Shark, Jack, Grouper, Sheepshead and more!
