12-13-13 Fort Myers Fishing Report

I’ve had several great trips in the Fort Myers area over the last couple of weeks.

There have been new friends on board, as well as returning customers, and some new clients, all getting to experience great trips in Estero Bay.

An unexpected chop, even on the inland waters greeted me as I throttled up the motor and the boat began to plane for a weekday charter with first time clients on a Wednesday morning. They wanted to fish for tarpon, and the cloudy and generally stirred up water was going to make it difficult for what I wanted to do.  I picked up the eager group of 3 before sunrise and we set up some drifts not far from the ramp on the swift flowing outgoing tide.
