Capt. Brandon Naeve’s Weekly Fishing Report

Reported: December 4th, 2018 by Capt. Brandon Naeve
December is a great month to fish these waters.

December is a great month to fish these waters.

December is here and it’s jigging time, so get out your favorite jig and cover lots of water. Snook are dormant this time of year due to the cold so don’t bother targeting them until spring. However, trout, bluefish, ladyfish, and Jack crevalle are there for the taking.

CB's tackle has a large selection of jigs and tails, they also get input from their guides on what is working best. If you have small kids along take along a few dozen shrimp for the slower paced dock fishing.

Also, remember that Florida has a high moisture content in the air on most mornings and it can be much colder on the water then what the temperature gauge might indicate.

I always travel with a Patagonia lightweight rain jacket as a windbreaker rain jacket combo! CB's Outfitters has them in colorful choices and they make a great Christmas gift for the ladies.

I'll be back from PA on December 6th… Let’s Go Fishing!

I've been a fishing guide the Sarasota , Boca Grande area for over 25 years. My Sarasota trips are mostly family oriented 1/2 day fishing trips involving kids who love to catch all the family fun fish. My Boca Grande trips are for the more experienced spin or fly fishing angler.
