Ten Thousand Islands - Saltwater Fishing Report
Flyfishing is on fire
The month of May is finally here and the fishing has been on fire. The weather is finally starting to be stable and the spring winds that have been haunting us are pretty much over.
Flyfishing in the 10k islands and the Everglades has been great to say the least. Snook fishing has been really good with some large fish being fooled by the feathers. Numerous double digit days for the well presented cast.
Tarpon are here and have been growing in numbers with each passing day. Most fish ranging from 70-130 pounds. Smaller fish have been found in the numerous creeks and basin throughout the islands.
Red fish are around as well, but have been a little more sluggish than usual for reasons unknown, and there is still trout in the troughs and out on the grassflats.
All above species can be targeted with the spinning rod as well with soft plastics and topwater plugs as well as jigs.
Falling tides are providing better sightfishing, and the incoming tide flushes the tarpon onto the flats.
Fishing is only going to get better as the warmer season arrives. Still have some open days left on the calender, so call and reserve an adventure in the 10,000 Islands and the Everglades.
Thanks to all my clients who have fished with me this year so far, hope to see you again in the near future.
