Fall fishing Islamorada

Trip Info


Fall is a great time for flats fishing in Islamorada and the everglades national park. Permit and bonefish are the targeted speceis in Islamorada, polling the shallow flats while looking for tailing or mudding fish is the preferred way to find and catch these amazingly fighting fish. Back in the Everglades the fishing is also in full swing, redfish, black drum, trout, and snook can be found in the runoffs and channels on the proper tides. Up on the flats in just a few inches of water snook, redfish, and baby tarpon can be found tailing. Using a light weight spinning rod with the preferred bait or a fly rod are the most common ways to cast at these shallow water fish. The Everglades also hold a vast amount of wildlife which are always a great sight to witness.
