Flamingo Fishing Report

We just got another cold front that came through yesterday. This one was a quick and should start to warm up quickly. This has been a good winter so far this year with lots of cold fronts. Even thought the cold weather prevents us from having good winter tarpon fishing , the spring is usually incredible for tarpon after a cold winter. I am definitely looking forward to that. The snook fishing has been pretty good between the fronts, on the warm days. The sight fishing has also been pretty good once it warms up about mid day. My days are filling up for tarpon season, so give me a call and lets put something...

Cold front

We just had a big good cold front blow through the South Florida late last week into the weekend. That slowed the fishing down for the most part in the backcountry. The fish were down deep and required some live bait and shrimp to entice a bite. The good thing is that right after the front, fish get really active because they haven’t eaten much in the last few days. The weather is calling for a warming week which will really turn on the bite. Looking forward to some great fishing this week. Miami Fishing...

Everglades Fishing Report

The fishing in the Everglades remains strong. It has been warm and the tarpon are around. Not in huge numbers but if you can find them, they will eat. The snook fishing has still been very good with lots of smaller fish around. The redfish has really picked up on the Gulf Coast and we have been sightfishing them in shallow water. There is a ton of bait out in the Gulf and lots of predators attacking them. The fishing has been great in the Everglades, so give me a call to get out on the...

Everglades Fishing

I hope everyone had a great Holiday weekend with friends and family! We have had some great weather in the Everglades with some even better fishing. The snook fishing in the backcountry has been absolutely outstanding. There are lots of smaller fish around and some bigger ones mixed in. It is not uncommon to catch 30-40 in a day throw plugs or flies. There is still a lot of freshwater in the backcountry which is great for the fishery. There has also been some pretty good baby tarpon fishing. These fish are in the 5-10lb range and pretty aggressive. The big ones are slowly starting to show up and once we have some light winds and warm mornings, we will definitely be chasing them. We usually get a good push of big tarpon about mid-December. Just keep an eye on the...

Snook fishing in the Everglades

It has been quite a few weeks fishing for snook in the Everglades. There has been a lot of smaller fish around with some bigger ones mixed in. Most fish are in that 15in to 25 in range which is a blast on fly and light tackle. With all the rai we have had this summer, the salinity levels are way done, which is good thing in the park. Seems like you cant have enough clean fresh water in the Everglades. That is the life line of the whole system. With having this many snook around, it should be interesting how the next few years pans out. I am thinking we are in store for some incredible snook fishing in the Everglades...

Hurricane Irma

It’s been a while since I have been able to update my reports page. Hurricane Irma put everybody on guard as she made her way to South Florida, changing her projected tracks daily. This massive storm made landfall and debased the lower keys and Key West and then went up the west coast and hammered Everglades city and into Naples. When this storm finally left Florida, it had made an effect on the entire state. We got lucky on the east coast, as we experienced Cat 1 winds for 15 hours straight. It definitely could have been worse. My heart goes out to all the residents in the lower keys and west coast as it hit them the hardest. I have not been out on the water since storm because of the fact that the eyeball went through Everglades National Park and caused a huge amount of damage. The park has been closed and will remain closed probably for a while. I plan on launching out of the upper keys and running to the Everglades starting tomorrow. I will definitely let you know what is going on...
