Flamingo - Everglades National Park

Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Flamingo's Hot Early Morning Fishing Tough to Beat!

Early mornings have been producing good numbers of tarpon , snook, and snapper. There has been plenty of bait around (mullet and pinfish) and those have been keeping the game fish active. Mornings have had relatively calm wind making things even more pleasant to sneak out and try for cobia and tripletail. Watch out for the late storms so don’t be sorry and begin early.

Catch reports include the McCarthy brother’s four cudas on fly and snapper. They also hooked a 60 pounder that cut us off near Crandon. I had the pleasure to fish Mike Boucher and Susan Schooler out of Flamingo for a super day with two redfish measuring 26” and 24”. We also put snook and tarpon in the air. Later in the backwaters we also caught a gag and a goliath that just wouldn’t budge. It was a great day because Susan grew up fishing with Lefty Kreh, Vic Dunaway, and many of the famous fishing authors and celebrities. Paul Decourt and son caught drum, snapper, and managed a runaway snook for a few seconds. The rest of the day was fly casting lessons and I did see a big improvement in Paul’s technique. Then Joe Digraziano managed to put two tarpon in the air. One of the ‘poons came within reach of the landing net but pulled the hook.

Special thanks to West marine and Outdoor Florida for the sponsored seminars at the retail location as well as the W. Palm Beach boat show.

Captain’s recommendation for summer is to get a super early start!
