I’m new to the area so this question may be silly to you locals.
We’re probably making this area our full time home so I have a steep learning curve to fish here year round.
I’m fishing these areas for the first time ever during the summer months and the water I’m seeing flowing between Ft. Myers and Sanibel as well as the water in Bonita & Little Hickory Island is very dark and tannic looking.
Is this normal?
What causes it?
How does it affect the fishing?
Thanks so much and have a terrific week.
P. S. When I’ve fished here Jan-March in the past I’ve wade fished inshore usually up and down the beaches and have related to points and flowing water as much as possible.
I’ve tried those same tactics a few times lately but with not the best results.
Any tips to tweak my fishing style are appreciated.
In the past I’ve primarily fished beach and inlet types of areas.
