Southwest FL- Pine Island Sound - Boca Grande and Charlotte Harbor

Tip of the week 

Watch for tailing redfish early. Work the mangrove creek mouths for them when the tailing stops.

Seven-day forecast 

Rain from Mathew will add to the cloudy water and low salinity. But the fishing will remain good. The lower part of Pine Island Sound will see reduced water quality due to increased Lake O releases into the Caloosahatchee River.


Water is cooling off and the upper Harbor is holding fish in most of the fall spots.
