Best Red fishing in 20 years

Capt. Jeff Legutki

Ten Thousand Islands - Saltwater Fishing Report

This past month has been probably the best fishing everyone has seen in Decades. Everyone you talk to is having banner day, no matter what kind of fishing you're doing.
Fly fishing for red fish in the skinny water has been the best I have seen in 20 years. I would usually say if my clients sight fished 3-4 fish it was a great day!
Lately, we have moved into numbers like hooked 18 and landed 13. Absolutely unbelievable, fish are everywhere and they're gobbling down anything in front of their face.
Flies, soft plastics, or bait is all working better than one would expect.
If you like to sight fish, you cant beat this. If you are freezing up north and want to bens a rod, I suggest you get in on some of this. Cause it does not get any better!
Snook are around, yet numbers are few, saw and had 3 shots yesterday at big late season tarpon laid up.
On the easterly days, off the beaches of Naples are loaded with bonita and mackeral and a few tarpon as well.
Great time of year to be here and sample some incredible fishing.

Ten Thousand Islands Fishing Forecast:

Tides will get lower as winter gets closer. For us that means much more sight fishing opportunities. Waters will start to clear as the standing waters in the Glades dry up.
Reds will continue to cooperate throughout the season and the bigger snook will start moving into the shallows to warm themselves over the brown muddy bottoms.

Target Species:

Anything that eats a fly!

More Fishing Reports:


Come fish the 10,000 Islands and the Everglades National Park for tarpon, snook, red fish and more with either flyrods or light tackle. All artificial no live bait, geared for two anglers. Fly through the shallows in a Hellsbay Whipray. Fishing with the finest equiptment like Sage fly rods and Bauer reels or St. Croix spin rods and Quantum reels. Sight fishing is my passion! Target the toughest saltwater species in mere inches of water and fool them into eating year round.
