This time of year can be really good or really bad. Most of my trips the past couple of weeks have had me in Everglades National Park (Flamingo). .
The winds have been strong and the cold fronts keep coming through, but the good thing about fishing the Glades is that there is always somewhere to hide out. On windy day’s I’ve been running through the backcountry and heading to the rivers and on others day’s fishing right out front of Flamingo and fishing around islands and working the shallow banks. This all depends on what the wind is doing.
River fishing has been steady with a mix bag. On almost every outing to the rivers we have been catching plenty of Gag grouper with a few keepers in between. Spanish Mackerel have been everywhere from the river mouths, to the gulf wrecks along with some Cobia as well. Snook fishing has been descent as long as the water temperature stays warm. Redfish have been consistent on the grass flats as well as deep troughs and runoffs.
Tarpon fishing has been hit or miss, but any day now they will be in full force in White Water Bay. If you have never experienced this before, it’s a must do on your to do list.
Until next time,
