Fishing Charter Service for Naples & Marco Island, FL



Mixed Bag Catching Aboard The Grand Slam!

Blog Entry Date: May 14, 2014

Outstanding would best describe the recent bite! Fishing both shallow and deep, we have been able to record some solid catches of Grouper, Snapper, Kingfish and Drum.

Black Drum Love Jigs!

Out on the offshore grounds, the Grouper bite continues to dominate the action aboard "The Grand Slam". We have been prospecting ledges and hardbottom areas in 40-60-feet of water with a variety of live and dead baits producing excellent results. Mixed in with Red and Gag Grouper has been a healthy dose stout King Mackerel up to 35-pounds! All of our larger Kings have been fooled with free-lined live shrimp and scaled sardines presented on a light wire trace.

15-Pound Gag Grouper!

Along with the usual Springtime inshore suspects of Snook, Redfish and Jack Crevalle, we have been turning several hard-charging Gag Grouper and Black Drum fishing the deeper mangrove island shorelines and residential dock of Naples Bay. Jigs, shrimp and scaled sardines have been our go-to baits.

Anglers, Its been a windy April/May season so far however, do not let the conditions deter you from getting out on the water and "experiencing the light-tackle thrill" aboard "The Grand Slam"!
