The Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission has extended snook, red drum and spotted seatrout catch-and-release measures in areas impacted by prolonged red tide02-19-2020 Obsession Charters Fishing Report
Snook fishing in Matlacha as a winter cold front was settling in over southwest Florida. North wind blowing 10-15 with air temps in the 60s. Water temp 74*. The snook were cruising the sands along the mangroves just the same though. These weak cold fronts don't always shut the bite down. The ladyfish were eating anything thrown to them also.Capt.

Some great shots of Paul Skydell and Mike Wolfson fly fishing the shallows of the Kennebec for striped bass. The video ends with Paul getting a very nice one on a 7wt. using 10# tippet.Capt. Dave Pecci - Obsession Sportfishing

the striped bass have now are staged along structure waiting for bait to come
Conditions: There is a large abundance of bait in the Kennebec. Water temps range from 57* to 68*. Water clarity and water flow are average for late June. We are finding stripers feeding on the surface daily but the action is less predictable than in past weeks. The fish are ranging in size from 14"-30" with a few bigger ones here and there. We are averaging 20 fish per trip right now on fly and spinning gear.
Bait the fish are feeding on: Juvenile Atlantic Herring, Sand eel, Alewife, River Herring, American Eel, Mackerel
Target species right now: Striped Bass
The striped bass are becoming more selective due to the huge abundance of bit in the River.Capt. Dave Pecci
Another incredible week on the Kennebec River! Pretty much nonstop action every morning on flies and lures. No bate needed. Catching striped bass up to 32" in many spots on the River. Here's three videos from this week:
Bill Farland joined me again on July 25th for a fantastic morning of striped bass fly fishing. We caught over 25 fish and several over 24" the biggest one weighed in at 7 pounds and was 28" long.
"We are catching 20-30 fish per trip on flies and lures! Sizes are ranging from 12" to 32" with some fish over 36"."Capt. Dave Pecci
