Fishing continued strong for last week of August

Naples and Marco Island Fishing Report

Fished a couple from New Jersey today. Tim was a first time Saltwater Fly Fisherman and his girlfriend just wanted to take a boat ride. I wasn't going to let that happen she ended up catching the first Snook of the morning. We started at Gordon Pass at first light. The Snook bight was on but Tim didn't quite have the right touch on hooking the fish, so I figured I should let Alicia catch one on a plug. She boated a nice twenty incher which spurred her boyfriend on. He listened to my suggestions about keeping the Rod in the water and strip striking the fish and he was soon into his first ever Snook. Both Alicia and Tim caught a few more on the outside, when we decided to head for the creeks to see if he could land a Tarpon. The Tarpon were a little slow this morning but he did manage to jump three small ones and almost land one. All in all I think they had a great time they saw all kinds of critters and Tim ended up landing a 28 and 26 inch Snook along with a few others and many of the elusive red mangroves. Fishing this week should be the same we are coming into a new moon phase which means low rising tides in the morning along with good tidal flow. Get out early and go out late in the afternoon for best results. I have seen some big schools of Jack Crevalle on Keeywadin, they are great fun on the Fly.
