Flamingo Fishing Report

Trip Info


Over the last week or so, the Everglades has been invaded with Tarpon.  We got a nice push of tarpon in the 40-80lb range, with a couple of bigger fished mixed in.  We found them schooled up, rolling, and tailing.  Definitely some of the most exciting fishing you can experience, whether using fly or spin tackle.  There is a lot of bait in the Everglades right now and it looks like the tarpon are keyed on it and fattening up for the winter.

The redfishing as been probably the next best thing.  A lot of fish mudding and tailing on the Gulf side of the Everglades.  These fish are usually pretty aggressive and a lot of fun to sight fish. 

One of the many reasons I love the Glades is you just don’t know what you are going to get into on a daily basis.  I went to a redfish mudflat yesterday that has been recently holding a lot of fish.  The only thing we found was a school of 15-20lb tarpon and they definitely were hungry!
