Big Sea Trout In Matlacha Pass
Sea trout are a common catch this time of year but keepers of this size have been rare, at least for me. Using live bait like shrimp at this spot would be the best way to hook into them but you'll also land a way too many catfish in the process.
The three foot deep flats west of Mcardle Island are a great trout habitat right now and that's were most of my hookups have happened lately. Other than that, the high traffic areas of Matlacha Pass have been really quiet now that the slow season is here. Good luck if you're coming here for vacation. Everything you try for trout on your home waters will work on Pine Island at the same time.
