Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Flamingo Fishing Report

May the New Year bring positive boating and fishing experiences for everyone. So far it has been excellent for myself as well as many other south Florida guides. We have been on the water steadily during the moving season.

On the outside of Flamingo there has been abundant drum, sheepshead fishing. Some redfish and snook are mixed in. Catch reports include 2 fly caught snook by Hank Reedof Kent, Washington. One measured 26” roughly around six pounds or so. Bob Halsel and Dave Flowers fished with with me and caught snook, gags, trout, and redfish on the inside of Whitewater Bay.

Whitewater Bay is an excellent choice right now with the high winds. Solid trout fishing. Lee Holladay’s father and son-in-law DR caught a 26” redfish, 8 black drum, 7 sheepshead, and a tarpon on fly. The tarpon was estimated at 50 pounds and was the highlight of the trip.

Hal Marrying and Frank fished with me on the outside to take home 4 drum and 4 sheepshead for dinner. We also released many more. Doug Pickered and son also caught the same amount of fish for another good day.

Ramon Sobrado and son fished with me around Stiltsville in Biscayne Bay and caught plenty oflane and mangrove snapper

Whatever your choice is, the fish are biting especially in the coastal Everglades region. Call and book a trip NO FISH_NO PAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!
