Nice getting back on the water again after a bit of a lull. This Wednesday morning charter was with some avid fresh water fishermen who don’t get to fish the salt very much. They picked right up on the techniques we were using after we left the dock at Lover’s Key right on time.

The bite started with plenty of sheepshead, snapper, and small jack crevalles eating our live shrimp bounced along the bottom of some of the deeper waters in the passes. Once the tide was high enough, we ventured back into Estero Bay to fish along some mangrove shorelines. The first fish came quickly, and Josh was able to land his first ever snook.

The next good fish was a nice spotted sea trout.

There were a few more jacks caught and an unseen break off before it was time to head back to the dock after a 4 hour trip that seem to fly by. At the ramp I cleaned their keepers, consisting of a few mangrove snapper, sheepshead, and the trout before we said our farewells after another great day in Estero Bay!
