Waters Are Clean and The Fish Are Feeding!!

November 2018 Fishing Report

Everglades City Fishing

As I sit down to write this report I have been struggling lately with the realization that the media is hurting us local fishing guides with the constant reports of Red Tide. And I am not down playing the severity of the bloom by any means. I know my fellow guides to the north are struggling because it is a real problem for them. I am Just informing people that Our waters out and around Everglades City, Chokoloskee, 10,000 Islands and the Everglades National Park have not been impacted by the Red tide. Fortunately for us being tucked up in the southern part of the state the currents go right on by way out in the Gulf.

Now that we have cleared that up lets get to fishing.
Snook–The Snook season ended on December 1st and it did not disappoint. This last week out captains have been putting clients on some nice fish. Those fish should continue to bite thru the next couple of weeks trying to fatten up for winter. However they will be catch and release until March 1st 2019.

Redfish—I have been amazed at the number of Redfish that have been caught this month. Some holes are so full of fish that you get one every cast. Now having said that the quality of the fish has come up a bit short. We are catching 2-3 dozen Redfish ranging from 15”-18” on some trips with an occasional big one mixed in. While this is fun to be the fisherman, it is also great to such a great crop of redfish for the seasons to come.

Sea Trout—The Spotted Sea Trout bite has really picked up this month. Anglers have been happy to be able to take some of these home for dinner guests.

July 2018 Fishing Report

July 2018Fishing Report: This week the water temperatures in the areas we fish in the 10000 Islands and the Everglades National Park right now have been ranging between 83 and 87 degrees. Now that we are in our typical summer patterns with daily afternoon storms we have been getting out early and back to the dock before storms and heat. We are still fishing the outside shallow flats and oyster bars around the barrier islands and offshore structures. The highlight of the month has been the Permit and Snook. The Permit have been averaging 12-25lbs eating live crabs and jigs. The Snook have been averaging 20-36” and preferring live pilchards. Team Captains Brandon, Austin, Tyler, and Kurt have been targeting these fish on six hour charters fishing out of Everglades City and Chokoloskee. They have also been fishing the grass flats on the four hour trips with catches of Sea Trout and Pompano. Both of which have provided great table fare for clients.
Come fish with our team of family friendly guides here in the quite Ten Thousand Islands.

June 2018 Fishing Report

June 2018 Fishing Report

June has gotten off to a hot start. Both the weather and the bite. The water temps are sitting around 84 degrees. All of our captains have been catching Snook, Redfish, and Seatrout.  And for the early birds the Tarpon have been feeding good at sunrise. We have been using a mix of Live baits and soft plastics. Live baits have been a mix of Pilchards, Pinfish and live shrimp.

The key to the best bite has been to get out early.

Give us a call today to get you out on the water!
