Naples Fishing

We may take a few day trip in and around Naples within the next few months. The resort where our friend stays is in the area south of U.S. 41 and situated on the bay area.

I gave the area a look on Google Earth and noticed of course the gulf shoreline, the bay itself, and the bridges.

I will be on foot using light spinning tackle, jigs and soft plastics, perhaps some live bait etc.

My first two thoughts are to simply wade along the gulf shore but from Google Earth it didn't seem to have many cuts, inlets, etc. to hold or attract fish so my second thought was to fish under and around the bridges up into the bay.

From what I could tell, most of the bay shoreline is either private homes or boat docks so I didn't expect that area would be accessible.

Any tips are appreciated.

    I might suggest going down rt#951 before the Marco bridge there is a boat ramp with some acess as well as down the road just before the bridge. You might also head down the road toward Goodland where is a canal along the road with pull off spots all along it. You can catch snook, ladyfish and jacks as you get closer to Goodland bridge . Naples beaches are always a good spot using the county acess areas. Good luck.
