Backwater fishing Naples florida

Many newcomers to SW Florida aren't familiar with the backwaters of Naples Florida.

If the wind is under 12 miles per hour and Easterly, a small boat will suffice. I use a kayak and launch from the Isle of Capri fish house on the Isle of Capri. 

Best fishing is adjacent to the mangroves in the shade on a sunny day.

Best bait is live shrimp.

Cast into the mangroves.

Types of fish are red drum,black drum,sheepshead,pompano,jacks mangrove snapper and snook

The water is salt water and I have never seen snakes or alligators

just dolphins and a lot of birds

Once in a while a shark

In the spring tarpon
