Everglades City, Chokoloskee and Everglades National Park

Everglades City - Saltwater Fishing Report

Great Tarpon Action in Chokoloskee/Everglades City

Phil of Light House Point, Fl. took his brother Ritchie from Connecticut fishing in the Everglades National Park/10,000 Islands with Capt. Bruce Hitchcock where he caught his first snook a nice13 pounder.  He is hooked for life!!

Al and Lee Ann Lewis of Lee County fished with their son Tim and his wife Susie with Capt. Charles Wright for a 1/2 day in the morning on the flats.  Lee Ann took top rod honors with a ~ 75lb shark.  Fishing was sporadic, as the fish were in fast moving schools.  They had a nice mess of trout and pompano for the freezer (and dinner). Happy birthday Al!

Don and Heidi Lewis of Key Largo fishing with their son Scott (Detroit) fished the afternoon with Capt. Charles Wright for snook using live mullet.  They had one very large snook take a very large mullet, but the hook pulled that fish would have been Scott's first (big) snook.  The rest of the mullet were repeatedly molested by sharks!!!

Kitty McGowan of Ft. Lauderdale and her friend Tim, fished a split day charter Saturday with Capt. Bruce Hitchcock.  They fished the flats in the morning for trout and fished the evening for tarpon.  The spilt day charter is a great way to get the best of a fishing day. You catch the morning bite, get back for lunch, some air conditioning and a nap, and the fish the even bite usually until dark.  Even though the rains delay the evening launch, they still jumped six tarpon!! Everyone in Chokoloskee is still talking about Kitty's tarpon fighting hoops and hollers.  Looks like we may have another Chokoloskee Convert on our hands!
