Gfen,

Thanks for the vicarious trip to the salt. My parents live about a mile from Vany beach n the “low Rent” section, Naples Park. I have been fishing down there 1-2 times per year for 25 years. If you’re headed down again, shoot me a PM. I have a few good wadable spots you might like.

One quick tip: get to the beach about ½ hour before dawn on a moving tide. Snook live a moving tide. You should be able to see well enough on that beach with all the high-rise condos. Also, Wiggin’s Pass has some decent fishing from shore.
Ladyfish and jacks are my “save the day” fish.

Thanks again for sharing.

- Mike

I meant to take in Wiggins Pass through the park. One morning I committed to walking down there from the last public access point on Vanderbilt before I decided my old man was confused and it wasn't "a short walk" but a billion miles away.

I imagine that they're going to try and haul me down there again next year, after witnessing how easy it is to fish the surf there (vs the NJ beaches), I'll probably be more willing. Don't be surprised to see a PM from me someday on that subject.

I couldn't do it, but I see what the old people seek the area out. It was amazing how the beaches, when I was there, were devoid of pretty young things but crawling with geezers. I was told its different in season, so what do I know? Next time, I might try and rent a boat for a day in the bay, too.

I think I had a jack, too. I don't know what it was. Small, somewhat elongated, very silvery body and some wicked pectoral fin spines that made my hand hurt like a mother for the rest of the day? Someone told me it was a jack, but I didn't think they looked like that.

Count your blessings about not being there in season. 41 is a zoo and the beaches have way too many fat German men in Speedos & thongs. THere are some things you just can't un-see!

Jacks are shaped somewhat like panfish, but on 'roids. They are bruts. If you get a 10 pounder, watch out! Muy brother caught one in Naples Harbor that was about that size. He was using 30 pound spin tackle and a big youzuri plug. The jack straightened all but a single hook! I love 'em! They are quick to hit top, too.

One reason I can't feature going out with a 3 weight in the salt...you might be targeting ladyfish, but obviously anything can happen.

That's part of the adventure, innit?
