Everglades Fishing – October 19th Report

This weeks fishing in the Everglades was fantastic, with the weather starting to change the cool morning temperatures has turned on the fishing . When we left my dock this morning the we decided to head south to fish the grass flats off Lostmans River and fish for Trout .Snook from Everglades Fishing Charter

When we arrived at our first spot the Trout were on the bite! Our first drift across the flat produce Trout in the 3-5 lb range. The bait that worked the best was a smoke colored riptide shrimp tail jig. After catching enough Trout for dinner we decided to switch gears and fish for some Redfish and Snook . With plenty of live bait around we broke out the cast net and filled the live well with some nice size Pilchards . The spot we decided fish was a beach front island that had a lot of blow down logs and snags, a prefect spot for Snook and Redfish to lurk . Our first cast hooked into a big Snook that we couldn’t turn and after a few seconds broke us off . On our second cast we did much better landing and releasing a nice 12 lb Snook.

As the rest of the day went on we caught several more Snook with some nice Redfish mixed in .

With the cool October and November weather the fishing in the everglades should remain good with a lot of great action. It’s the perfect time for fishing charters, so lets go catch some fish.
