Halloween Eve Fishing Report

Ted Gibson

Thanks for checking out the Nauti-Gal Fishing Adventures Report. Yesterday we started off grouper fishing in ~90' of water. Managed to box 5 keeper Red Grouper with the Biggest being about 31"

We drifted most of the time. Squid and the few pinfish that we had seemed to be the best baits. The morning bite was the hot, but after the first couple hours are baits were getting destroyed by Lanes and Vermillion Snapper and it was tough to keep the hooks baited.

After we were good on grouper we dropped down some lighter gear and picked off a few Lane and Vermillion Snapper.

On the way home one of the retired Air Force Relay Towers that we have in Naples was on the way, so we made a quick stop. At the Tower we picked off a couple Barracuda using Green Tube Lures and live blue runners for some fun fishing. The crew wanted a Goliath for a photo, so we dropped one of our Barracuda down for bait.

We didn't have to wait long and we had a Goliath Grouper on. After a few quick photos we headed back to the barn. Overall a great day on the water with an awesome crew from Massachusetts.

Hurricane Michael Fishing Report

Ted Gibson

We were able to squeeze in our morning charter yesterday before the seas picked up. The wind has been steadily blowing out of the East for the last several days…blowing out whatever remains of the Red Tide. Visibility has drastically improved and the nearshore fishing is finally starting to get better. Fish are finally starting to move back in to some of the nearshore wrecks. We caught this Barracuda for our “Big Fish” yesterday. We were also able to land several grunts, snappers, and multiple triple tail on the way back to the dock. The triple tail were undersized with the biggest one being about 17”. Overall I would say things are looking like they are going to continue to get better!

Half Day Offshore Fishing With Keith Jim

Ted Gibson

Yesterday I fished with Keith and Big Jim. We started off the morning fishing a reef about 14 miles Offshore from Naples. Fishing started off very slow and after about an hour of not catching much other than a couple grunts; we decided to move in a little closer to shore. The next spot was some artificial structure in about 36’ of water. As soon as we dropped our lines down at the second spot we started catching Mangrove Snapper to 16”, Gag Grouper to 22” and Spanish Mackerel. Finished off the morning with a limit of Mangrove Snapper. Didn't land any huge fish, but did get broken off by some nice ones.

September Half Day Fishing Naples

Ted Gibson

Went out on a half day charter with a group of 4 yesterday.  The good news is there are still fish out there to be caught!  My day started off early getting down to Wiggins and trying to catch some live bait.  Went straight out to 18' of water where some birds were working and used a Sabiki rig to catch Threadfin Herring.  I then went to the beach where there were literally thousands and thousands of Pilchards (small ones).  We fished multiple spots from 3-12 miles offshore.  We caught Mangrove Snapper, Grunts, Blue Runners, Gag Grouper, Pork Fish, Spanish Mackerel, and had a shark on for a few minutes.   It was good just to catch some fish after the red tide.  It was also good to see the bait starting to show back up again.  Fishing should continue to get better!

January Offshore Trip

Ted Gibson

Went on a full day shared charter yesterday. We weren’t sure that we were going to be able to make it happen with the way the weather has been this month. When we got to the pass the seas were surprisingly calm, so my crew elected to go for it. We went through a few miles of fog, but it cleared and it was a straight shot and smooth boat ride out to 75 feet of water.

Ended up landing several undersized red grouper, some big mangrove snapper, porgies, gags, and an Amberjack. The one porgy was 22” and makes the rest of the snappers seem small in the picture...he was a little tank!

Around 3 0’clock the winds started gusting to 20 knots and the seas started to pick up. We elected to head to the barn! The boat ride in wasn’t as smooth or dry as the ride out haha.

Thanks to my crew for making it a fun day!
