Everglades City, Chokoloskee and Everglades National Park

Everglades City - Saltwater Fishing Report

June 19th -- The Tom, Whitney and Carson Wright

Tom Wright and his sons, Whitney and Carson, from Huntsville, Alabama, fished a 1/2 day this morning. The wind was blowing harder than expected, so our planned permit excursion had to be curtailed. However, on our first stop, a bait was picked up immediately on the first drop. We were after some of the 20lb class snook that had been schooled up on this spot in the previous days. But instead of a snook, Whitney tangled with a very nice Goliath Grouper. This was by far the largest fish that Whitney has ever caught. Even though he is relatively inexperienced with big fish, he did a great job muscling this 70lb fish to the boat. Dad, all the while, was filming the wrestling match on video while being chased around the boat by the rest of us trying to stay out of Whitney's way. Snook fishing for the really big linesiders remained slow all morning. Both boys landed Jack Crevalle close to 12lbs and Whitney had a very nice trout.

Trout fishing has been a bit slow in the last week, as has the catching of reds and snook. This primarily because the weather in the last week has made things difficult. It has been raining for what seems like a week. I am not sure if the fish bite less aggressively in the deluge, but it sure seems to take the punch out the anglers. As I get older, fishing in wet socks seems a lot tougher now that it used too!!!!
