Fishing and the Oil Spill

Everglades City - Saltwater Fishing Report
Oil Spill....seems to be on everybody's mind lately and so it should.
Has it affected the Everglades? NO
Can we smell the oil? NO
Can we see it on the water? NO
Is it effecting the fishing? NO
Remember Florida is a long way from Louisiana and we are down at the southern part of the state and 100+ miles in from the gulf stream.
So with this in mind....how is the fishing? It is catching as usual, with Permit, Cobia, Redfish, Trout, Pompano, Mackerel, Snook, Shark and there are still some Tarpon around. The bait is here for the summer which also helps keep the larger fish here and makes summer fishing good.
The Snook are in the Passes, Around the Islands, in the River Mouths and out on the Near-Shore wrecks/reefs.
The Redfish are Around the Islands, Along the Beaches and in the River Mouths.
The Trout, Pompano, Cobia, Permit Sharks, Mackerel are on the Flats and also out on the Near-Shore wrecks/reefs.
The Tarpon are in the Passes, Backwater Bays, and off the Outside Beaches.
We all are concerned about how this catastrophe will affect our beautiful natural habitat in the Everglades and how it will affect the fishing. It is still an unknown but what is known is that we are open for fishing, open for fun and open for charters!
So, come on and give me (Capt. Becky) a call (239-695-2029) and we will get your reservations made for that fishing experience of a lifetime.
