Fishing Report for January, Plus February Fishing Outlook

January Everglades Fishing Report: This January is one of warmest we’ve ever had in S/W FL and with it being so warm the fishing in Everglades National Park has been red hot .The Red fishing still remains on fire we have been having our best luck on the rising tides the bait that has been working the best has been a riptide jig tip with a piece of shrimp. The Redfish we’ve been catching has been averaging between 4-10 lbs. The Trout and Pompano fishing has also been great this month . We have been having our best luck drifting over the grass flat on the high tides. A shrimp under a popping cork has been working the best for the Trout and a small tube jig bounced slowly on the bottom has been the trick for catching Pompano . Snook fishing has also remained steady. January 2012 Everglades Fishing - Outlook and ReportWe have been finding most are Snook deep in the backcountry were the water is warmer. On one of my charters the other day we caught 11 Snook averaging between 5 and 12 lbs. Casting a Zara Spook over the shallow mud bottom has been working the best . On the days were the winds are light we have been running 2-3 miles offshore were the Mackerel have been . Mackerel are one of the best fighting and can provide some great fast action . The Mackerel we have been catching have been of nice size averaging 4-5 lbs.

February Everglades Fishing Charter Outlook: With the weather being so warm the fishing in February will remain excellent, with fish on both the outside areas as well as the rivers and backcountry. The Snook fishing will still be good deep in the backcountry were the water is warmer and the bait fish are plentiful. The Trout and Pompano fishing will also remain steady on the grass flats Trout and Pompano provide some great and fast action and can make for a great fish dinner. The Redfish fishing over the last 2 years have been some of the best I have seen in my guiding career. Redfish are a great fighting fish and when we find them school up it can provide hours of great action. Tarpon usually don’t show up till march but don’t be surprise if see a few in February with the weather being as warm as its been.
