Everglades Fishing – April 6th Fishing Report

Everglades Fishing for Redfish
Redfish with Riptide Jig

The weather in The Everglades is really starting to warm up, holding the promise of active fish and great fishing. Such was the case today when we pointed my Maverick towards the outside points in the vicinity of  The Chatham River to fish the incoming tide for Trout and Redfish. The first spot, a shallow grass flat with deep cuts on the edge, yielded several slot sized Trout and Pompano. As of late, Riptide jigs tipped with shrimp and bounced slowly on the bottom seem to be working the best for all species, which makes it easy to rig for the day. Later, as the day progressed and the tide started to fall we switched to fishing around oyster bars with live shrimp under a  popping cork, which brought Redfish up to 10 pounds. Call and reserve your Everglades Fishing charters while prime dates are still available.
