For the last several days in The Everglades, fishing has been all about the Redfish. Typically, we’ve been heading out from my dock at Glades Haven (just between Everglades City and Chokoloskee) at daylight and running south to the mouth of The Chatham River on the rising tide for some hot and heavy Redfish action, along with a few decent Snook mixed in. Redfish have been averaging all different sizes anywhere from 18 to as large as 30 inches. The primary bait I’ve been using that seems to be working the best is a fresh cut Ladyfish, my secret weapon, or rootbeer Riptide jigs fished very slowly on the bottom.
Snook season is closed, however, you are still allowed to have fun catching them but all must be safely released. In addition, we have also been catching some nice size Trout and Pompano over the grass flats in about 3-5 ft of water on the higher tides.
October fishing has been excellent. It’s one of my favorite times of the year to take my fishing charter customers out into Everglades National Park, as both the action and weather are fantastic. This is an excellent time of year for anglers of all skill levels to enjoy a fishing trip.
If you would like to book a fishing trip please give me a call!
And thanks for checking out my website.
