Fishing pickup up a lot today in the Naples area as the tides increased and the weather warmed. We had a couple tough days during the quarter moon which coincided with a three day cold front but that’s all in the past. Angler Brian Hirschmann battled a beautiful 8# 28″ red fishing today. Brian his girlfriend Sarah and his Dad Roy caught seven species including gag grouper, trout, snook and more. I had a tough day with Paul Mann and his son Ben until Paul hooked into a 250lb bull shark in four feet of water which he fought for 2 hours before we touched the leader for an official landing. Great job fighting that shark Paul!
