Flamingo - Redfish Rodeo

Capt. Benny Blanco
June 19, 2009
Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

As I idled up to a famous Florida Bay flat, we were met by the Sun's first peek over the horizon. When I turned the engine off, the familiar sounds of happy mullet surrounded us. I joined my long time client on the bow platform for the show... in the distance we could see dozens of wading birds and glowing golden Redfish tails. For a brief moment we just sat and watched. Back home we each had a myriad of stresses, but during that moment we had none. There simply is no substitute for time on the water... it can be your therapy, your release. I wish all of you more time on the water this Summer!

REDFISH RODEO
This week was filled with schools, and I mean BIG schools, of Redfish on every flat from Flamingo to Islamorada. I'm not sure what is tougher, poling to single tailing fish or poling in endless circles following hundreds... but, I can tell you I am exhausted and sore after a week of chasing schools around. It was certainly worth it, though... what a week!

Big Mike Battistoni from Maui Jim took some much needed personal time to bring his son down to Flamingo. He wasted no time putting the first one in the boat...

From 5" of water to offshore wrecks, I will tailor a trip in Everglades National Park that will blow you away. Come aboard one of my top of the line Maverick or Pathfinder skiffs and enjoy the comforts of the best back country boats while we explore some of the most beautiful water in the World.
