I’m excited to report that the 2023 Boat Present had file attendance throughout not less than one of many 4 days on the Ft. Myers ‘Downtown Location’. Filled with distributors and other people enthusiastic about getting out in the course of the lovely weekend to benefit from the boats and merchandise which are consultant and mirrored of SW Florida way of life. I had the chance to satisfy new individuals and reunite with my mates and previous shoppers whom religiously attend my yearly fishing seminars. This yr the seminars have been very in depth specializing in ‘inshore’, ‘offshore’ and Tarpon. Every class had a thirty (30) minute session and was introduced 3 times a day. All classes included the fundamental, intermediate and superior instruction along with ‘query and reply’ time.
Fishing has been actually good with solely a few exceptions after a chilly entrance. Now we have had a few these unusually chilly intervals not too long ago, however they’ve been brief lived and issues bounced again to regular pretty rapidly. My solely recommendation to these fishing grass flats for Seatrout on unusually chilly days; is to ‘exit later and let issues heat a bit’. A whole lot of Captains referred to as me all through the latter two months for recommendation on the place the fish was as a consequence of lack of ‘chunk’. The recommendation at all times; was to ‘go later within the day and give up round 3pm as issues began to cool off once more within the night’.
The following few days of climate experiences look actually good for each ‘inshore and offshore’. Simply make certain and go offshore on much less windy days. The chunk is nice on each venues, nevertheless, the water ranges ‘inshore’ have loads to be desired, so deal with the passes and deeper areas round docks and piles. Much more vessels are showing on the water for fishing and leisure exercise. There was much less fishing stress to this point, however I think that can proceed to escalate as a consequence of clear up of hurricane particles. Keep alert nevertheless, as there are nonetheless some tree limbs and branches within the shallows.
The following Bonita Boat Present will probably be held in Bonita Seashore on the Gray Hound Race Observe. I will probably be there giving seminars every day. It is a nice venue to take the time to atone for merchandise and fishing expertise (particularly when the robust March winds blow stopping good boating and fishing winds). The present begins Thursday, March 02 and goes by way of Sunday, March 05. Extra to return on that on a future fishing report.
