Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report
Flamingo and Whitewater Bay: either is good choice right now
We are seeing the best backcountry fishing of the year right now. Everything from cobia, tripletail, tarpon to snook and bonefish on the flats. Here are some catches:
Rick Silva family with a pair of 30 # cobia. Released 4 more cobia. Son Mike lands a 12 pound snook the same day. Daughter Jessica catches pompano and drum. E-mail me for photos. Mike is the snook man. He did it again!
Don Calhoun and son release over 25 largemouth bass all on lures.
Tony Vega, a regular now, released a cobia. His son, Byron caught the largest Flamingo sheepshead this season four fish weighed just over six pounds each. Mackerel, pompano, and trout were also mixed in. He saved $100 on his trip with the take a kid fishing discount.
Ariel De Armas and wife had redfish, pompano, drum, grouper, and big snook. Great people.
Cynthia Gray fished Biscayne for a mixed bag of fish and a cool afternoon. Sending your shoes to you soon.
Greg Henson and partner caught a 35 pound tarpon on plug somewhere in the deep backcountry. They also caught spanish mackerel, big trout, snapper, grouper, and the big snook got away with the $8 Yozuri. But we had an awesome day fishing with mostly plugs. Theyíll be back, for sure.
Most recently, Guy Vellacott and Mike Kahler caught a 24 pound cobia, mackerel, trout, and many tripletail. These fish will be pictured on Sun Sports Chevy Fishing Report by Capt. Dave Sutton.
I also wanted to take this time to thank my fellow guides and friends who have been able to participate in some group/corporate trips Iíve had the fortune of putting together recently. And a special thank you goes to all of my readers, many whom Iíve actually met at the ramps or on the water.
There is a good possibility of me finding myself into a larger boat to accommodate my growing family and business.
