Description

A typical day of fishing Flamingo would be getting up early and making your way through the Everglades National Park before daybreak. There will be time for sight seeing on the ride home in the afternoon. Arriving at the boat ramp at daybreak means the things are going according to plan.

The Dolphin 16 foot flats boat can run very fast and shallow getting into position for an early Tarpon bite. After battling Tarpon big and small, attention turns to Snook and Redfish. If you are good at casting accurately then working artificial lures in and around the mangrove roots will be most productive.

If snagging tree limbs is your forte then no worries adjustments are quickly made and the fishing action continues. Time to eat your lunch. Pack a big lunch because you will work up an appetite winding in countless numbers of fish. You will wrap up the day fighting more fish until your arm hurts. Back to the ramp and then the long 38 mile road trip through the National Park.

Grew up fishing south Florida with my father and grand father. I lived near the water so fishing after school was a daily event. Spent the last 10 years traveling the Bahamas in a sport fish catching some awesome fish and seeing some of the most beautiful waters in the world.

Clarification on recommendation of this experience.  I did not know that the fish we caught were not edible due to mercury contamination.  Therefore we only had catch and release.  This was fine but, I may have chartered a different trip had I known.  I was hoping to catch supper. 

As it was we caught a few smaller fish and had a good day on the water.  Got to see some of the Everglades and a few alligators.  Capt. Tom was friendly and knew the waters well.

You could have eaten them. They are edible. I just thought it was nice to inform you that everglades bass have a mercury warning.
It was fun catching them anyway.
