Everglades redfish and mackerel report

Capt. Steve Friedman
January 23, 2011
Islamorada - Saltwater Fishing Report

A cold front passed through South Florida yesterday. Fishing and the weather had been consistent up until then. Gulf was a little slow with a mackerel bite, but closer inshore they were thick. Lots of redfish around Flamingo but most in the 13-17′ range. A couple of nicer ones are in the mix, but the little guys are faster to the shrimp and jig than the larger ones.

Tarpon were thick while the water temperatures reached up to 76 degrees in some areas. The cooler temps will push them out for a while until the water warms up again.

Looking forward to this weekend, Janaury 29th, for the annual Swamp Guides Ball tournament. A fundraiser that brings in thousands for the Don Hawley Foundation which benefits fishing guides in need. A cause near to me for sure. Need to catch bonefish, snook and redfish all in one day. Forecast is unusually pleasant. Can't wait.
