April and May Fishing Outlook

May Fishing Report for Everglades FishingApril Fishing Report / May Fishing Outlook for Everglades Fishing

April fishing was fantastic with light winds and warm water temperatures the bite was on all month . Snook fishing has been the best since the freeze 3 years ago. Snook have been hanging around a the beach fronts and mangroves island and are averaging anywhere 5 and 15 lbs . The bait that been working the best have been live pilchards and fresh cut lady fish. Tarpon has also been showing up the this month in good numbers. Most of the Tarpon we have been catching have been averaging between 60 to 100 lbs . The bait we been having the best luck with has been live ladyfish or pinfish .The Trout fish has been the best I have seen in years . A lot of the Trout we have been catching have been big averaging anywhere from 3 to 6 lbs . Riptide Shrimp Jigs have been working great but the bigger ones have been biting on a live pilchard under a popping cork. Redfishing remain’s steady alot of the redfish we have been catching have been mix in with the Snook and have been of nice size . Another great fish we have been catch has been TripleTail that like to hang around the crab buoys offshore on a recent trip we scored with one that weight in at a whopping 22lbs (in picture above) .April fishing was absolutely great providing a lot of fast and furious action

May Fishing Outlook

May is my favor time of year to fish .With hot water and air temperatures the fishing should great. Tarpon should still be hanging around and be on the bite Tarpon are truly one of the best fish to catch and truly provide a challenge to the most seasoned angler. Snook fishing in April was great and should even be better in May. The Snook we catch in May can average in the 28 to 38 inch range with a few bigger ones mixed in . Trout fishing can be red hot this time of year .Trout like hang over the grass flats in 3-5 ft of water .A live pilchard or shrimp seen to work the best this time of year. The Redfishing in may should remain steady providing so great action .If you would like to book a trip for May please give me a call and I will be happy to set it up for you
