Sanibel and Captiva Sizzle

The Summer fishing is about working with nature. The hot steamy months of summer have the water temperature in the high 80's. Afternoon showers are a daily cooling for the waters near Sanibel Island. Fresh water from rain and big Lake O have turned the water brown and green. There is a Red Tide bloom that has stayed mostly north of us. Pockets of the red tide have killed fish and our bait. Fishing has been good for Sea Trout, Spanish Mackrel, and Mangrove Snapper. Start early and Finish early to beat the heat. Picture is me in the pool with my Grandson. His first trip in the pool.
