Lots of damage, Fishing intact

Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Hello there Cyber Angler community, This week I was able to pre-fish on Thursday and gather fishing intel for my clients. Our beloved Everglades National Park was beat up by Irma...There are lots of heavy, random seaweed patches- other than that we didn't come across many other debris patches. Additionally, there are PLENTY of blowdowns and lots of broken off mangrove trees that were lifted and dropped miles from their original location. In the near future these broken off trees will become new spots as will new channels that have formed as a results of heavy winds and current. As for the water quality... there are several good stretches of water, although we found those closer to Key Largo. The fishing...we located rolling Tarpon and jumped at least two within the first 20 minutes of the trip. Fished a bit for Snapper and found two in the 12-15 in. class within a school of 10 or more. We closed the trip looking for Snook on the fly and picked up two on an 8-weight with a tan colored fly on 20 lb. leader. All in all, the fishing was better than I expected, I do expect the water quality to improve in the coming weeks.

WARNING to my fellow captains and boaters. The channels leading out of Flamingo AND those right of front of the park HAVE SHIFTED! Be mindful that a dredging project will commence shortly in the park...I recommend that you "expect the unexpected" while navigating, there are multiple markers that have been blown down, some of which are left floating or blown over- in some cases they've landed in what used to be the channel. BE SAFE friends!

I do have charters available within the coming days, contact us today!
