November was an awesome fishing month this year. The Redfish bite remained on fire through the last part of October and carried on through November. Bent rods is what I saw on every trip; Redfish, Sea Trout, Snook, Sharks, and Pompano were putting smiles on my clients faces.
My clients this month used a wide variety of techniques to lure these fish to the boat. Bucktails tipped with Shrimp were hot with the Pompano and Sea Trout. Redfish and Snook had me working; throwing the net to catch what they were feeding on (White Bait). And the Sharks were all over the Lady Fish!
Family fun was all over November. Justin with his first Redfish and Liman followed up with his first Snook, featured above. The sun was not always out through November, but the fish were shining.
Jacklyn came down and picked a picture perfect day to land Jack Crevalle and Snook .
All in all it was a great month. December is another great month to get on down here to Naples, Fl for some great Backwater Fishing. I will be targeting Redfish, Sea Trout, Pompano, Spanish Mackerel, Sheephead, Sharks, and catch and release Snook. If you would like to get in on some of this action, give me a call for availability., Until then, tight lines and keep your rod tips up.
