Sanibel Fishing

Sanibel Island Fishing

Warmer weather in this weeks forecast for Sanibel Island Fishing.
Water temperatures are key this time of year. I prefer to use artificial bait. This time of year there isn’t much bait anyway, except shrimp. Light tackle and stalking with a push pole is a great way to fish here around Sanibel, and Pine Island Sound.

With the water temperatures climbing. Ladyfish and Trout have been making their way up the Sound. Later these schools of fish will be attacked by Tarpon and Sharks. Redfish and Snook will be coming out of their hiding places, all looking for anything to eat, and clean saltwater.

I have been focusing on the afternoon fishing. Living so close to the water, I found the bigger fish feeding on top water plugs, on the high tide. Gator trout’s and big redfish move on top of sand mixed with short clean grass. Anything that resembles a finger mullet will do the trick. I also like to see mullet jumping in the area.

This time of year we get this algae or moss that chokes out our beautiful grass beds and makes it tuff on crustaceans to move.Then it dies and floats to the surface once again exposing the grass, and fouling up my tarpon lines.

March trips are filling up nicely. If your planning a trip, its time to give me a call or drop an email.

See ya on the water,
