This morning was typically hot, normal for Everglades National Park this time of year, and so was the fishing. The bait that we were using today was live pilchards. I headed south, in the vicinity of Lostmans River to fish the outgoing tide. I setup on an outside point, free lining the baits on the back side of an eddie. The Snook action was immediate, and we caught several in the 28 to 33 inch range.
When the tide switched, so did we and our next spot was and oyster bar were the tide was falling. We quickly scored with a nice 7 lbs Redfish, then a mix of Mangrove Snapper and Redfish.
We finished off the day by heading out to the “grass flats” to catch a few trout for dinner. Fishing the grass flats is a relaxing way to have fun while drifting in about 3-4 ft of water with steady fishing action. We scored with several nice trout that we in the 3-5 lb range .
With May finally here the Everglades fishing is good and should even get better.
