The pre-fall fishing in Naples, Florida is right on schedule. The air and water temperatures really haven’t cooled down but we are seeing some fishy fall patterns already starting to take place.
This Labor Day weekend was very busy in the backcountry so we did sneak out to some of the inshore wrecks and they paid off very well. Spanish mackerel seem to be everywhere and some big ones in the mix. Even some larger Snook and mangrove snapper are eating the pilchards on these wrecks. Lots of barracudas in the mix. Goliath grouper‘s. Also a plethora of black tips and spinner sharks have moved into our region! Also the back to back hurricanes that have passed us by the skin of our teeth. Have moved extreme numbers of triple tail into our area. The stone crab traps are not even out yet and we are seeing floaters everywhere, anticipating October very much!
This is one of our slowest months of the year. It sure doesn’t feel like it, we are still doing 3 to 4 trips a week. Lots of late shoppers and callers but with our schedules wide-open they have the best pic of weather days. So please don’t hesitate to reach out to one of our captains to book your families charter!
Thank you, the Bedell Captains.
Fishing in September in Naples, Florida. We love this month around here. This is our slowest month of the year. We don’t mind. No one at the ramp or on the water. Yes you can pick any shoreline you like. Bait is absolutely everywhere. So are the gamefish!
Our calendars are very spotty at best for September. One here, one there. This will change the closer we get to October. We will have 2 bay boats this season to cater to the larger parties and with overflow. Please reach out to any one of our captains to book your trip of a lifetime!
Thank you. The Bedell Captain’s.
As we enter September in Naples, Florida we are also getting into a pre-fall pattern. The bait fish (pilchards) have shown up so early! It’s so nice to just stop anywhere and black the wells out for the days fishing!
So after the live wells are thriving. You can just take them about anywhere and find fish. The inshore wrecks have been providing lots of Snook, Goliath grouper and Spanish mackerel. The cobia, kingfish and Tripletail should show up very shortly!
The back country remains as solid as could be. Large snook are just about everywhere with lots of small males mixed in. Even some Trout and massive schools of Jack’s to fill the gaps. The redfish are also starting to fill-in everywhere. The beach, the bushes, any docks and rocks will hold these fish through the next few months!
September can yield some amazing fishing. Ironically it’s one of our slowest months of the year. So if you would like to enjoy some time on the water with nobody around and amazing fishing please reach out to anyone of our captains!
Thank you. The Bedell Captain’s.
We are starting off the last month of summer with so epic fishing!! Long time client Mike has been fishing with the OAM team for close to 20 years now.
This is how you do it folks! Mike booked 2 full days and his rewards are obvious. I can’t tell you how many of our clients book a Halfday and want these results! Can it be done? Sure, but doesn’t happen very often. Our captains need time to look, find, locate these amazing fish! Having the right weather window helps too!
We are still getting the short notice bookings. One or two days before the charter and our weeks are filling up extremely fast! With fishing like this I’m sure you can understand.
Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns about your charters! Thank you. Tight Lines!
The Bedell Captains!
