Estero Bay: Crews found some nice snook action on the bars and eventually under the bushes on the afternoon high tides. My guys found decent numbers of reds but we had to keep looking for moving water under the bushes. Sheepies, black drum and reds were around the docks of Matanzas Pass and Big Carlos. New Pass held reds, snook and snapper but it was crowded with spring breakers and families so be careful.
Crews and reported a pick up in the trout bite but the wind made drift fishing a little tough if you didn?t have a sea anchor. Shrimp, Gulps, whitebait and DOA Shrimp all took a share. The speck bite is still high speed yet in the central bay.
There were good mixed bag reports from the Imperial and Hendry Creek. Fly guys, pluggers and jig fisherman all found some willing smallish liners and loads of tough guy jacks.
