Each year April is when the Everglades fishing really starts to heat up. It’s typically when the large Tarpon arrive, and so it begins! Live baits and calm winds, combined with water temperatures moving up into the 80’s really gets the fish in The Everglades turned on. Tarpon can average 60 to 150lbs are roaming the bays and creeks, looking to rest and feed on their annual migration. Also, the Snook fishing really kicks in as well as they move out from the deep shallow bays of the backcountry to the mangrove islands that blanket the edge of The Gulf. Snook this time of year can average anywhere from 5-25 lbs, and will put up a fight to be remembered. In addition, fishing for Redfish this month will continue to hold steady as we catch them in the same locations as Tarpon and Snook.
