This winter in Everglades National Parks will go down as one of the warmest in history , and with the weather being hot the fishing has been fantastic. The Snook fishing has been providing us some great action deep in the backcountry, with Snook averaging anywhere from 5 -10 lbs. For the most part, the bait we have been having the best luck on has been live pilchards, which have been available early this year do to the warm weather.
Trout and Pompano fishing has also been on fire, with the best luck on the rising tides over the grass flats in 3-5 ft of water. A lot of the Trout we been catching have as big as 5 lbs with a few averaging over 6lbs. The pompano have been mixed in with the Trout and been in the 3-5 lb range . Redfishing remains steady… On yesterday’s charter, the first spot we hit gave us 19 Reds. Over all this month has provided some of the best winter fishing I have ever seen.
Fishing Charter Outlook:
March is the turn around month for us down here in the Everglades The Tarpon should start showing little by little and be on the bite. A live ladyfish under a float seems to work the best this time of year. Our tarpon here in the Everglades can average anywhere from 75 to 150 lbs. The Snook should start moving out from the backcountry and into the mouth of the rivers and along the island that blanket the coastline. Live pilchards and pinfish seem to work the best this time of year. Trout and Pompano fishing should remain red hot right on though the spring, along with continued Redfish action.
