Trip Info

The Catch
Spanish Mackerel

Capt. Keith of Bamboo Charters has been racking up great catches of Spanish Mackerel in the shallow waters of the Gulf of Mexico and topping off the day with big numbers of Sea Trout.  The Gulf borders the Western edge of the Everglades National Park so we can fish both areas on the same trip, even on half day charters.  The Macks are eating anything we throw at them right now!  jigs, plugs, bait and flies, the action is something to see.  Every cast is producing violent strikes! These Spanish Mackerel are reaching 7 pounds and are excellent table fare.  After getting beat up on the Macks Capt. Keith went into the Everglades and had our clients throw Gulp! shrimp under a popping cork for a steady bite of Sea Trout on the grass flats.
