The mid July fishing report for Naples, Florida. It’s been extra hot down here this time of year, but so is the fishing.
Our focus has and is still in the Permit game. Still large fish and schools in our area. These trips require booking at least a 6 hour minimum. Of course full days work too. It’s jus difficult for us to find these fish on half days.
We’ve even been running into some either late season in Cobia or early season in Cobia. Either way we are not upset about that. These fish make for amazing site fishing opportunities and always good on the table.
There have also been some good numbers of large Snook on the Inshore wrecks. These fish have not been picky eating everything from bait to artificial, always make for a great photograph and a quick release. Also, Goliaths in every size range on the same spots.
Our books are slowing down a little bit, but we are still very steady doing 3 to 4 trips a week. We do love this time of year. We are able to flip-flop around in case of intimate weather. Also, we have been catering to a lot of our regulars and specialty charters for permit fishing only. This is the time of year to knock that bucket list off and cherry pick your day. Let us do the rest.
Hope to see you all on the water, tight lines and thank you from the Bedell Captains.
June to July transition has been a pleasant mixed bag. We love the month of July, that’s when we get our biggest Permit of the year.
Seems like the big girls like the month of July. We have been capitalizing on some larger fish from 38 to 40 inches the big bruisers are here!
Also between the permit frenzies, we’ve been getting a nice mixed bag of just about everything that swims right now. Massive jacks, drag screaming, barracudas. Golias that will make you hug the gunnel with everything you’ve got, even a few straggler Cobia have showed up in the mix.
While we’re talking about the pleasant mixed bag offshore, a lot of the tasty snappers have moved in to spawn for the summer. Mangroves and nice lanes even a few yellow tails in the mix always make for delicious fish tacos after the Charter.
Been very fickle year for the Tarpon. Weather has not been on our side, onshore winds. It seems like in every direction, rough waves, and sees even some dirty water just to make it that more difficult. We still have been stopping by and checking out the scene in the morning. If we don’t see any fish, we are heading out to where some better game fish cooperate.
Our calendars are still very steady for this time of the year, when we provide specialty trips and knocking special bucket list fish off of your list, those charters get booked very quickly.
July can be a very special month with usually Fairweather so please reach out to anyone of our Captains to book a trip of a lifetime! Also, specialty get certificates for birthdays, special occasions, and holidays are always available!
Thank you the Bedell Captains.
