Flamingo - Everglades National Park

Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Catch a Flamingo Grand Slam

Water Temps. on the rise means the fish will be more active! This is when the species that compose the slam turn on and catching a ‘grand’ is considered great accomplishment.

I have been fishing south of Flamingo with great results due to clean water. Snake Bight has been full of catfish due to the sedimentation and erosion caused from high winds. Trout and snapper have been a surefire bet along with plenty of sharks. Reds have also begun to show up on the flats and I’ve spent some serious time pushing around for them. Snook, have been and not, there. Temps. are favorable but they are scattered about on the Bay side.

Thankfully I have been on the water several days a week and have also been keeping busy with the publications. Highlights of some excursions include: famous Chef Ron Berthiaume’s snook and trout catches with wife, Javier Granados and friend Jesus’ action-packed day, and Hernan Lopez and sons’ trip. The last included quite a varied day on the water. Diane and partner Virginia also spent a beautiful day on the water with me. I know they’ll be back for some summertime action.

Bass fishing and nighttime tarpon action continues to peak! Frank Poro and father-in-law had an tremendous day with me too.

But it looks like I’ll be spending much more time in the Glades as we prepare for the long-awaited Lucerne Tournament.

Please give me a call to arrange a trip in the coming weeks or months-I’d love to guide you around the Glades or on the flats.
