Click to Enlarge PhotoDespite some of the strongest winds of the year the fishing continues to be really good inside The Everglades National Park. During the colder months in the Glades, the fishing techniques tend to forget about aimlessly poling the skinny and casting weedless jerkbaits and returns to a more stone age approach of the bucktail jig and knocker rigs strapped with a large live wintertime Shrimp. Some of the coldest days of the year have produced some incredible fishing in the creeks and Bays of Cape Sable and will continue to produce until waters warm and fish return to their usual hunting grounds of the shallow mud and grass flats of Florida Bay. During this month in Flamingo we have been experiencing some extreme low tidal stages and this can be one of the best times to capitalize on gamefish seeking refuge from the unstable water levels and temps of the flats. Big Black Drum are ever present and my anglers have caught some up to 37lbs on simple Shrimp rigs on the bottom. Big Snook have been mixed in with the juveniles causing us to keep our drags tight in a weak attempt to avoid a heartbreaking trophy loss to the mangroves. Redfish and Trout have been schooled along mangrove shorelines and if you run into a couple there is generally a whole lot more nearby. Redfish tend to seek out specific conditions during this time of year and will congregate in an area that provides them comfortable water temps and food. On the rare calmer days the grass flats in and around Sandy key have been covered in fish willing to hit almost anything. There have been big Blue fish, Redfish, Trout, Snook and even Pompano that are eating topwater plugs and jigs tipped with Shrimp. Also Dons Bait and Tackle, now Homestead Bait and Tackle has relocated a few blocks south on US1 and has the same great tackle and customer service as always. The weather is mild, the fish are more than willing to burn some drag and you couldn't ask for a better time to come and experience The Everglades, for more info on trips or if you may be interested in learning the waters of Flamingo and Florida Bay contact me @ scottbrown483@gmail.com or 305 542 6345.Click to Enlarge Photo
