Giants in the Backcountry

Capt. Jeff Legutki
March 1, 2009
Everglades City - Saltwater Fishing Report

Typical weather for this time of year, and the giants are finally into their winter/spring haunts. Semi consistent weather has made the fish very predictable.

Big snook have been haunting the shorelines in the backcountry bays, Hugging the darker mud bottoms, warming themselves to speed up their metabolism and feed.

Whether you are throwing a fly rod or a spinning rod the snook are willing to take your offerings. Jerk baits and jigs in dark colors are working well, and rootbeer colored flies are getting the nod.

Outside on the nicer weather days are producing good trout fishing with a whole pletherra of other species willing to bend the rod and eat a jig. Pompano, whiting,jacks, bluefish, as well as bonita and mackeral off the beaches.

Redfish are around as well as some small tarpon, but you pretty much trip across them when you least expect it.

So tight lines and screaming drags to all who dare to go. Hopefully this weather stays mild and the tarpon show up early this year.

Due to the hurting economy, call for new rates.

Everglades City Fishing Forecast:

Cold front blowing through tonight, expect fishing to be on the slower side for the next two days.

Target Species:

Anything swimming in the shallows!

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.
