Capt. Mike of Good Time Charters reports a productive week in Estero Bay with Trout, Sheepshead, and Redfish being the most prodominant.  If the trout bite continues into the new year as well as it has been this past week He expects to see lots of nice fish being brought in.  Most of the trout caught were low to mid slot with several topping 20″.  The trout caught this week weren’t on the flats but in deep troughs running out from the mangroves in good current.  Live shrimp either free lined or lightly weighted worked great.  The sheepshead are everywhere and starting to show some decent size several convicts over 7 lbs were hooked using live shrimp on small hooks.  The sheepshead are found oyster bars and mangroves as well as dock pilings, anywhere there is shellfish.  Redfish were found in these same locations often mixed in with the sheepshead and hitting the live shrimp as well.
