October / November Everglades fishing report

Capt. Alex Zapata
November 27, 2019
Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

Greetings to all, it's been a while since my last report and is time to catch up with all you guys. I'm happy to say that I can't remember the last time I had a slow day fishing in the park (even during not so ideal weather) which speaks volumes about the great improvement in fishing and water quality around flamingo this year.

My time is mostly spent on the flats between islamorada, key largo and flamingo, pushing my boat around in the shallows, sightfishing for redfish, snook, trout, sharks and tripletail among others.

The redfishing has been as good as it has been in years. Days hooking 20 to 30 reds have been the norm. These fish have been in about a foot of water or less, tailing or cruising.

Some big snook have been around as well. Although, the redfish appear to be taking over some of the areas that were once dominated by the snook, so catching quality linesiders has definitely taken additional planning and strategy, targeting different areas, under special conditions and techniques.

With the arrival of the first cold fronts, the fish are adjusting and moving to their winter time places and patterns. Cold fronts usually come along with strong winds and some rain (pre-frontal condition). This makes the fishing tough in some areas but also makes the fishing easier at others. Once the cold front comes through, the wind usually shifts from West to East and it gets sunny and warmer (post frontal conditions) which makes the fish more active again. Great days can be had in winter time using the right approach at the right places.

Most guides and anglers migrate to the traditional and effective jig and shrimp combination this time of the year. However, if you're not a fan of live bait and prefer sightfishing with lures and flies, great trips can be had in the backwaters of the glades. weather conditions such as wind direction, water temperature and cloud cover will dictate where to go and what our chances will be.....Your choice and preference as client is my choice.

Give me a call and I will work my tail off to show you a great time on the water.

Flamingo Fishing Forecast:

Expect great fishing with bait in the creeks and canals during colder weather. Colder weather also brings great sightfishing opportunities for flyfishing and soft plastics in the backwaters of the Everglades for snook and redfish. Expect good tarpon fishing during warm spells. Great time to fish the gulf for mackerel, bluefish, snappers and Cobia in the gulf.

Target Species:

Tarpon, redfish, snook, sea trout, blackdrum
