Everglades Fall Fishing Report-2019

What can I say, it’s one of my favorite times of the year to fish. Fall has hit us hear in South Florida from Miami to the beautiful landscapes of Everglades National Park.

Flamingo Marina is the southern most headquarters of Everglades National Park, and this is where we fish from when fishing out the of the Everglades. Right now the fishing is some of the best fishing of the year.

In the fall we have a huge bait migration up and down the coast of Florida, and the fish right now are gorging themselves on finger mullet and pilchards. Not only is the fishing as good as it gets, but I am seeing and catching fish in areas that were not holding fish in the past couple of years. This is a great to see!

The Everglades Ecosystem has been fragile for the past several years now, but with the Everglades restorations projects that have been put in place, The fishing this year has been one for the record books. It’s as good as it gets.

If your looking for big Snook, now is the time to fish the Everglades.  We are catching them on the flats sight fishing, on fly or spin tackle as well as bait fishing.  We are catching them off the beaches, creeks, and mangrove shorelines. We are also catching many fish on just artificial buck tail jigs, plastics, and surface lures.

We have to options available. Flats fishing on the skiff or fishing off our new 24′ bay boat that can accommodate three adults. Give us a call and book a fall fishing trip, you won’t regret it.
