Fort Myers - Saltwater Fishing Report
I'm just now getting back to light duty fishing. Its only been 5 weeks since my ACL surgury so I'm only fishing a few days a week. The first few days was tough. It takes some time to get the feels of what's going on out on the water. The first day that I went out I found some tarpon but I couldn't get them to bite. The next day I found a large school of big redfish but I spooked them so I didn't catch any of them. All of the ingredients for good fishing is in place and when I figure it out I'll have a good report. There is a lot of baitfish around right now. There are speckled trout and redfish on the flats, mackerel, bluefish and little tunny offshore and tarpon near the passes. Hopefully next week I'll have a better catching report.
Fort Myers Fishing Forecast:
I expect good fishing for the next few months both inshore and offshore. Look for grouper, spanish mackerel, king mackerel and little tunny offshore and redfish and speckled trout inshore.
