November 2015 Fishing in Everglades City & Chokoloskee

Capt. Brandon Acosta
November 5, 2015
Everglades City - Saltwater Fishing Report

November 2015 Forecast: Chokoloskee, Everglades City, and the Everglades National Park

November is just about always my favorite month here fishing the Everglades National Park. My top reasons are that the daytime air temperatures will average in the low 80's, water temperatures will drop to the mid to high 70's, rainfall will drop to about 1.2" for the month, humidity is low, and schools of live bait enter the area and get the fish feeding.

The new moon this November falls on the 11th and the full moon is on the 26th. Now is the time of year we really start to pay close attention to the tides, especially around the full and new moon. We will have some pretty low tides the mornings of the 11th-15th and the 24th-29th. Do your research if fishing those days, as you may want to adjust your fishing times to avoid those negative low tides.

Looking at the moon phases, tides, and the Solunar calendar, I like what I see for peak bite days the 9th-14th and the 24th-28th, especially on the rising tide. Refer to our website to look up where I post Solunar peak bite days.

The near coastal areas should be chock full of spanish mackerel, bluefish, jacks, ladyfish, and other energized fast swimming species. Look for the flocks of birds feeding on the scraps of an underwater frenzy. Send out any bucktail type jig, about - 3/8 oz, tipped with a small piece of shrimp for immediate action.

Stock up on D.O.A. Baitbusters and Terror Eyz and head to the backwaters to battle with the snook as they begin to head back into the creeks and rivers for the winter season. In a good moving tide, fish the eddy side of the points. For some fantastic action, throw them a handful of live pilchards followed by one on a circle hook. Hang on!

Redfish will be a primary target on the oyster bars and along the mangrove shorelines. Try a live shrimp on a popping cork for some great Redfish action.
