Hello everyone, I hope you all are doing great. It has been quite chilly down here. Well actually down right cold some nights it got to the mid 30’s. That is freezing for us. The water temperature has dropped a bunch too and the bait has all but disappeared. I am not sure where it goes, probably deeper water where it is warmer believe it or not. I think this time of year the best thing to do is put in and go The Bait Barge in the mouth of the Caloosahatchee River. Call Rick or Debbie 239-677-7179 . They will be there Saturday and Sunday with Live shrimp and Pin Fish. Call ahead, Rick and Debbie will reserve your bait for you. This is awesome!!! I spoke to Capt. Billy Hammond. He said the bite is still on and the bait of choice right now is live Shrimp. Capt. Billy said they are catching lots of Red Fish, Sheeps Head and bunch of Flounder. The Trout are beginning to bite as well. I am telling you if you want catch fish and have a great day on the water, contact Capt. Billy..http://endlesssummercharters.net/ . Here is a thought, Capt. Billy took out the guys fishing yesterday and caught all kinds of fish. Now today Capt. Billy is taking out the families of these guys sight seeing, Shelling and stopping for lunch at the world Famous Cabbage Key http://cabbagekey.com/home/ Ya know it has been said that Jimmy Buffet wrote Cheese Burger in Paradise there sitting at the bar at Cabbage. Yes the food is great and the atmosphere it great..
Okay getting back to Rick and the bait barge, he was out earlier this week and look what he caught.. Huge Black Drum. Yes, he released it unharmed to breed and make more babies.
