Fall is bringing an end to some great snapper fishing and some opportunities for traveling mackerel and bonito. The bait is still inshore and the small snook have been eating them. Weather has been beautiful after the fronts. Pictured is Fredrick from Sweden with a dandy redfish caught near Captiva island . Call today for your day on the water.

I always think of redfish in October when someone asks what's biting. The redfish school into groups of hundreds of fish. The challenge is finding the school!. It's been tough this year with fewer schools. I split my time on trout snapper and snook, looking for reds as I travel . Call today for your redfish trip.
