Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report
With cooler temperatures in South Florida the fishing in Florida Bay, the outer edges of Everglades National Park and the interior waters of Whitewater Bay and Oyster Bay has really taken off. When the weather is nice the Spanish mackerel, bluefish, cobia, pompano, jacks, ladyfish, snapper and tripletail fishing has been outstanding. When the wind blows the fishing along the coast, in the outside creeks, canals and runoffs has produced nice catches of snook, redfish, black drum and many other species. This is easy fishing with live shrimp fished from under a Cajun Thunder float or with live shrimp fished on the bottom with Hookup lure jig heads. Either location is a great bet right now!
On the freshwater scene the water levels in the Glades are falling and largemouth bass are congregating in many of the freshwater canal systems in the conservation areas of thye Everglades. This fishing will get better each and every day. Rapala floating minnows fished in these canals will produce catches of up to or over 100 largemouth bass and panfish in a day.
This time of year I also provide fishing trips for largemouth bass and other freshwater species.
If you're interested in any of these species and looking to get out on the water for 4, 6 or 8 hours then give me a call and let's see what we can do!
If you read the Miami Herald in print or on the web you may have noticed that the Miami Herald has not had a Fishing Report for the past few weeks. I was asked by the Herald to stop writing that report. I was informed that the Sports Department had to release all of their free-lance writers due to a lack of funds. I am not sure if they will have a fulltimer pick up that article or not. Having grown up in South Florida I had the pleasure of reading Vic Dunaway, Jim Martinoff, Marty Klinkenberger, Jim Hardy and Sue Cocking's articles and fishing reports over my lifetime. I always looked forward to seeing those reports every Friday and Sunday and then Thursday and Sunday. It's sad that a fishing community like ours can't support a Fishing Report once a week. If I was asked to do it again I would not hesitate to do just that. I'm not sure if a letter to the editor or a call to Herald will make a difference but it may! If you contributed to that article while I was writing it I Thank You!

Flamingo Fishing Forecast:
Everglades Fishing Report
Winter is here and the fishing in South Florida is about to explode. With water temperatures rising sea trout and snook will start their spawning seasons. Bigger fish and bigger numbers of fish! Spanish mackerel, bluefish and kingfish are heading north for the summer. As they pass the Miami area they always provide a months' worth of action. Big jack crevalles will be chasing baitfish schools in North Bay and big tarpon will be stealing baits intended for other fish. Offshore we will see kingfish and Spanish mackerel, bonitos, sailfish, dolphins and blackfin tuna feeding right alongside each other. In Flamingo in Everglades National Park we will see the return of all of the migratory birds as they fill the park and make unbelievable sunrise pictures. Fishing for snook, redfish, sheepshead, blackdrum, snapper, sea trout, jacks ladyfish, sharks, tripletail, cobia and more will be as e exciting light tackle fishing as one could wish for.
