Flamingo

The great news from the weekend is the National park announced that Flamingo is back open. All the boats ramps on both sides on the marina are open and safe. That is the only thing that is open down at Flamingo. The store, visitor center, bathrooms, and camp grounds are all closed due to the damage from Hurricane Irma . That is great news for everyone who fishes out Flamingo. The park hasn’t been fished in a month and it showed. We had a great weekend of catching a bunch of tarpon and snook on fly.

Everglades Fishing Report

The park road down to Flamingo is still closed at the moment but I believe they are really close to opening it up. I am still fishing out of the upper keys and running across Florida Bay to reach Flamingo. The fishing has been excellent out font on the flats for baby tarpon. We have caught them on fly and plugs. The fish have ranged from 5 lbs- 30lbs and there has been a lot of them. Some days we have had over 10 bites on flies and plugs!!

When the weather is warm, which it is almost year round, you can find tarpon. No other place offers that. I made a short video of what you can experience in the...
