The backcountry fishing in Naples, Florida remains solid and as good as spring can be. The big snook are everywhere and getting ready for the spawn. Massive Snook in large numbers are all over the passes, beaches and closest points to any moving water. These fish are eating anything in sight. Cut bait, live bait, flies, artificial‘s anything you can make their idea and not yours will get the best hook up. Also been a good number of redfish, Jack’s, and some juvenile Tarpon up to 40 pounds in these back country haunts as well.
The Offshore fishing in our region has been very difficult this month. We’ve been having crazy winds for May. It almost seems like March! There’s been no rhyme or reason, the winds have been blowing from every direction it seems like every day is been different and very trying for us.
Seems like a lot of the tourist have headed back north for the summer. Which leaves nothing but the serious anglers and an opportunity to check that bucket list fish off of your list. We still have room in our schedules for your parties. Please reach out to any one of our captains with your booking needs.
Thank you from the Bedell Captains!
This is our favorite time of year to fish in the Naples area. Everything is happy and chewing. Bait is everywhere and so are the gamefish. Big Snook are still rooming around all the usual haunts. Also some junior Tarpon are in the same areas, along with Redfish, Jack’s and maybe some Snapper for dinner.
The larger Tarpon are on the beaches and coves closest to the beach to rest from the long migration. These fish are eating everything in sight from crabs to cut bait.
We still have some availability this month if you would like to book some of these charters. Please reach out to anyone of our captains to line up your dates.
Thank you. The Bedell Captains
