Naples, Florida - Saltwater Fishing Report
Naples and Marco Island

Fished a few times this week in all the wind. Tough to keep in position, but the fish have been on the feed.

Catching large Snook in and around all the passes between Naples and Marco on both Fly and Spin Tackle. Thrown in for good measure are some small Tarpon in the passes. They seem to have a taste for a little white bunny fly.

The redfish are more to the back country around the points of creeks heading into bays. Even with the wind we have been getting a slam almost everytime out on both Fly and Spin Tackle.

The Tarpon although we have jumped some Big ones have mostly been under 25 pounds. The big Tarpon are here, just difficult in all this wind. Hopefully all this will get better the fish are here and ready, now the weather has to cooperate and it should be excellent. Thanks Rz.
