Captiva Island Fishing Report 02.13.12
Submitted by Catching The CureSubmitted on 02/13/2012
The warming water temps have really started to get the fish in a feeding frenzy. The nearshore reef bite is great right now with mackerel, sheepshead, trout, flounder, snapper, and even pompano. Shrimp on a jig head will work just fine. Anchor up on some structure and put out some baits. It won’t take long to get a bite going. The bite right off the beach is pretty god right now with keeper trout, and tons of ladyfish. Shrimp on a jig head or under a popping cork will do the trick. The trout bite over the grass flats is decent right now with the old shrimp popping cork combination being the go-to method. The redfish bite has been best during high tides around the mangrove shorelines. Shrimp on a jig head thrown into the pockets will produce a good bite. The presence of bait on the beach and around the channel markers has set off a quality snook bite around the floating docks. Free-line these baits on circle hooks to ensure good catch and release action.
