Still "Slammn" on every trip!

Capt. Jim Hobales
July 27, 2023
Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

The species are here in good numbers, when that happens, we try to catch all of them. The backcountry fish that make up the Slam are 3 of the 4, Tarpon, Snook, Redfish and Trout. If you are lucky enough to catch all 4 it is a Grand Slam. In the last couple months, we have slammed on almost every trip.

The fishing is so good I hate to miss a day but it's a very hot summer, I know a lot of guys that just won't do it.

The Tarpon are thick and hitting assorted lures, I use the Berkley Swimming Mullet and a weedless Fluke. There are plenty of good lures, but floating grass has been a problem so no treble hooks.

The numbers are good lots of Snook and Redfish and throw in a handful of Trout. The Sharks are out of control. We have to muscle the fish in, otherwise they will get bit by a Shark.

The fishing is really good and the rids stay bent, if this is something you would like to try give me a call at 305 333 8149.
