Florida Guys....Pls Help!

Recommended Posts

I am visiting some family in the Naples area at the end beginning of April. I will have access to a small boat and a lot of backwater to fish. What are some sure fire tactics this time of year for backwaters in that area? I would love to catch snook, but anything would be great. I have been before and had some success, but this time I'd like to do much better. Any help is much appreciated....thanks.

-Also, are there any places close to Naples for Peacock? LM?

Even if you don't have a boat you can hit the bridges on Tamiami Trail. You can catch snook and small

Tarpon on a variety of rapalas. #7 shadraps are my favorite. X-raps in ghoast, olive and hot head will

also be a good choice. Beware of the big snook as you will lose quite a few lures if your not careful.

Tarpon not so much as they have a tendency to go out away from the bridge and start jumping.

Snook will range from 1lb to 20lb. The tarpon can run from 1lb to 50-60lbs. The biggest I manage to

land was about 20lb, still not bad on bass tackle.

As for the peacocks you have to go over to the other side of the ally.

That sounds like a lot of fun!  So do you just pull off the road and fish?

Does that reqiure a freshwater, or saltwater license?

IF you are a Florida resident, you do not need a license to fish from shore, or anything attached to it...if you're in a boat, you do.  If you're NOT a Florida resident, you need a license for ANY type/location of fishing...
