Well, we have been completely blessed with a very short winter. The weather and fishing conditions have been more like a spring then winter. The fishing around here has been incredible to say the least.
With air temps in the 80s water temperature in the mid-70s and no cold fronts in sight. We are all very excited about the work we have the next month.
I can’t believe that we just rounded up January and we have been site casting to schools of Permit & Cobia off the inshore wrecks here in Naples. Absolutely crazy!
The Permit have been ranging from 10 pounds to some high, mid 30s mixed in. They have been eating hand pick select shrimp very well, and even a few of the larger ones gobbling crabs. It’s nice to have a little mixed bag of both.
The Wolfpack Cobia been showing up on the nice calm days and when the water gets in the mid 70s. Fish ranging from 5 pounds all the way to the mid 30s. Packs of twos. Packs of sevens. Even larger schools of 20s all around the boat. They are eating everything you throw at them. Have some larger tackle ready to go from jigs, plugs, and a variety of live baits.
So between all that fun. Take one of those hand pics shrimp. Or a crab. Or a giant sardine. Or a pin fish and we have been putting on some Snook clinics. All slot fish even some larger 40s mixed in. We had one pop the leader at the boat today that was in the 20 pounds range.
If this isn’t enough for you, the snapper and sheep head bite have been next to none. Great table fair, great fishing to do in between the difficult game fish bites and always nice to have a little groceries at the table for the family.
We have both boats back up and running full-time now. Captain Perry’s boat just got back from a full rebuild and she is shiny brand new with a cherry on top. This is a perfect sister boat to our Sabalo and we are looking forward to getting her in the mix as of tomorrow.
With that being said, please book accordingly, there already have had large chunks of our calendars taken out of February, March, April, May, and even June have been getting extremely busy.
These months are prime time for permit and tarpon, and a lot of our clients have been listening over the years because a lot of those dates have been getting sucked up! Please don’t sleep on any of these amazing trips coming up in the future.
We look forward to getting you on the water with our amazing team, tight lines everyone.
Thank you the Bedell Captains.
