Following the cold front this week we had a great warm up and this included a pick up on the Spotted Trout bite. We launched our kayaks at the North end of Pine Island and fished creek mouths on an incoming tide. The Spotted Sea Trout bite was on fire. We caught over 30 Trout in less than three hours. Best bite was fishing the drop offs drifting and anchored. Lure of the day was a three inch white paddle tail rigged weedless on a weighted hook.
Fished with soft plastic paddle tails and rat tail baits in natural colors along the edges of the mangroves in the creek mouths around Bokeelia prior to the front passage. The Trout bite was very active with most of our team catching some solid fish. Best bite was with the moving tide and fishing pods of mullet. Kayak fishing with Ocean Kayak Prowler 13's made it an easy paddle and we covered lots of water quickly which allowed us to fish areas we had not covered previously. Looks like light winds for this weekend so we'll be back out on the water targeting local Peacock Bass in the Cape Coral area.
Today we got out with customers on the back side of Pine Island and caught Spotted Sea Trout. We must of caught over a 100 fish drifting and throwing live shrimp under a popping cork. Fish ranged in the 14-18 inch class with several fish in the 26 inch range. Despite the strong winds it was a great day on the water. Tight Lines!

Fishing in the Cape Coral area was great this week. We had a party get out and fish in the St. James City area on the backside of Pine Island. Fishing live shrimp under a popping cork while drifting was the go to bait and presentation. Best results came from fishing the mangroves in two to three feet of water. Fish species caught included Speckled Sea Trout, Red Fish, Cobia, Lady Fish, Shark and Mangrove Snapper.
