Late Tropical season should be over!

Capt. Jim Hobales
December 21, 2023
Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

The last couple months have been slow business wise. The fishing was pretty good until we started getting Low pressures systems late in the season. 3 separate storms flooded and had gale force winds in south Florida and the Keys. We had no hurricanes but some water/wind issues which just stopped everyday life.

If that wasn't bad enough I had back and knee issues which made me take a break. I took advantage and had my boat restored during this time. My first day on the water since Thanksgiving was 12-20-23 and of course it was cold and windy. I fished Biscayne Bay although it was tough, we caught Trout, Mackerel, Jacks and jumped a 40 lb. Tarpon. It was miserable and the wind was relentless.

I am open a few days during Christmas break, it looks like some good weather coming next week. The backcountry Tarpon will show up as soon as this weather levels off. If you are interested in fishing Flamingo, Key Largo or Biscayne Bay give me a call at 305 333 8149.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
