July Outlook

July weather is very hot and so is the fishing like June we like to get an early start to beat the heat and the afternoon thunderstorms . Snook fishing should remain good Snook love the warm water temperatures and with the pilchards starting to thin out this time or year the bait we like to use are live finger Mullet . Snook in July can average all different sizes but the bigger ones will be hanging around the mouth the rivers on the falling tides . Redfish will also be on the bite in July .Redfish this time of year like to school up along the outside points and beaches .With shrimp being small this time of year we like to use a fresh cut ladyfish for bait. Another and fun fish we like to fish for this month are Sharks .With the water temperatures reaching the high 80’s the Sharks can provide a lot of great action . Most the sharks we catch will average anywhere from 100 -175 lbs . The bait that’s works the best and we like to use is a live Ladyfish under a balloon. Even no the weather in July can be super hot July fishing can provide fast and great action If you would like to book a trip please give me a call and let me get you in to some great fishing action

Everglades Fishing Charter – July 2011

Summer Tarpon Fishing in Everglades National ParkJuly fishing has had some great action. We have been leaving the dock at daylight to beat the heat, starting off by targeting the Tarpon that have been active early in the day. The Tarpon we have been catching have been averaging between 60 and 125 lbs . The best baits lately have been a live ladyfish or big pinfish. The Snook fishing has been strong, the best luck that we been having has been on the rising along the beaches. On one of my trips the other morning we caught several nice Snook that were in 10 lb range using live pilchards. The Redfishing has also great with a lot fish hanging around the oyster bars and mangrove islands.

The wreck fishing offshore can also produce some great and fast action this time of year. The main species of fish that like to hang around the wrecks are Cobia , Permit and Mackere. Summer is a fantastic time of year to fish, the trick is to get out early while the fish are active. Thanks for checking out my website and if you would like to book a trip please give me call.

Warm Weather… GREAT Fishing!

Warm weather sets the fishing on fire!

Everglades Fishing for TarponThis years weather went from cold to hot. With the weather absolutely beautiful the fishing has been red hot . This morning when we left the dock the water temperature was warm 76 degrees so we decided to look for some tarpon for the first time this year . When we arrived at the first spot we saw several nice fish rolling and within minutes of casting a sinking mirrolure we hooked up with a nice tarpon in the 70 lb range after a 15 minute fight the Tarpon took its final jump and spit the plug . After fishing for Tarpon we decided to run offshore and look fish for some Triple Tail . After minutes of stopping at our first spot we spotted a nice fish in the 10 range and with a perfect cast with a shrimp we had fish for tonight’s dinner . Later on in the day we decided to fish for some Trout and Pompano so we headed for a grass flat that was in 3 to 5 feet of water . The bait we were using was a Rootbeer Riptide Jig that the Trout and Pompano can’t resist . On our first drift across the flat we scored with some big Trout in the 5 lb range with some nice Pompano mix in . On our way back to the dock we had some time left to we stop at an oyster bar were there has been some redfish schooled We decided to use a shrimp under a popping cork for bait and that seem to do the trick we caught 5 nice Redfish up to 5 lbs. We are coming into the time of the year were the fishing in the Everglades starts to get better day bye day and with spring time right around the corner the Snook will start leaving the backcountry and heading out to gulf and the Tarpon migration should be in full swing . Along with Snook and Tarpon fishing being hot the Trout Pompano Redfish Triple Tail and Cobia fishing will should remain great providing a lot of great action…

I want to thank you for checking out my website and if you are interested in  Everglades fishing charters please give me a call as spring time is one of my busy times, and we can reserve your trip today.

Everglades Tarpon Fishing – April 16th

Everglades Tarpon Fishing
Everglades Tarpon Fishing

Each year April is when the Everglades fishing really starts to heat up. It’s typically when the large Tarpon arrive, and so it begins! Live baits and calm winds, combined with water temperatures moving up into the 80’s really gets the fish in The Everglades turned on. Tarpon can average 60 to 150lbs are roaming the bays and creeks, looking to rest and feed on their annual migration. Also, the Snook fishing really kicks in as well as they move out from the deep shallow bays of the backcountry to the mangrove islands that blanket the edge of The Gulf. Snook this time of year can average anywhere from 5-25 lbs, and will put up a fight to be remembered. In addition, fishing for Redfish this month will continue to hold steady as we catch them in the same locations as Tarpon and Snook.
