I just want to thank all of you for an amazing 2016. Finally finished the house and my daughters wedding went great! Now I will be able to get a few more fishing reports done since I’ll have a little more spare time.  Hope to see you all in 2017!

January’s 2017 Fishing Report

Absolutely beautiful weather has been here in Boca Grande and the fishing has really picked up. Red tide is all gone, bait is still around and the fish are chewing like mad!

Boca Grande red for all Redfish have been biting pretty well lately. I’m not putting up any crazy numbers, 5-10 fish, but I am consistently able to bring some nice reds to the boat. Most of the reds are in the 20″-30″ range and weighing 3 to 12 pounds.

Boca Grande trout Trout have been biting pretty good as well. Lots of nice keeper size trout have been coming aboard and the number of fish is outstanding. Most of the fish are in the 16″ to 20″ range but I have had some 25″ plus fish as well.

Mild weather has got the snook bite off the hook! Tons of fish in the 20″-25″ range with some studs over 40″ weighing as much as 25 lbs! Twenty to fifty fish days have been the norm lately. If the weather stays mild and you are serious about getting a big snook they are really chewing!

In the mixed bag department, I have been catching some nice pompano, sheepshead and flounder. They seem to be a little hit and miss but when we get into them they have been a lot of fun!
