Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report
I am back up and running after a motor issue, Yamaha/Bob Hewes Boats took care of it as they always do.
The weather is warm here, 80's for the last couple weeks. This means the Tarpon are getting into a early spring time pattern which is great, any time we can get into a more Tarpon it's good. There has been a pretty good Snook, Redfish and Trout bite going on as well down at Flamingo. Miami beach has Tarpon from Haulover to Government Cut on the beaches and the inlets.
The fun/eating fish have been productive catching them on live shrimp down on the bottom. There are plenty, Trout, Jacks, Ladyfish, and Snappers to bend the rod for the kids.
If I can help you catch a fish of a lifetime or just catch some dinner give me a call at 305 333 8149,
