Strong winds haven't stopped the fish from biting in South Flor.

Capt. Alan Sherman
February 25, 2018
Miami - Saltwater Fishing Report

February in South Florida typically is a calm month as far as wind but not this year. The winds have been howling every week. On average we have had about a day of calm winds each week. That has hardly been enough to get the water to clear up. Add to that the Boat Show traffic and fishing the bay has been a challenge. Inspit of the challenges when my clients let me take them to where I think we have our best shot at catching something the results have been quite good.

So let me go from location to location with a little discription and lots of pictures.

On the freshwatrer side in the Everglades the fishing has been outstanding. On average my clients in 6 hrs of fishing are catching up to 100 fish of which 80% are largemouth bass. The fish have weighed up to 4 pounds. The other fish that we are catching are bluegills, sunfish, gars, mudfish, Oscars and Mayan Cichlids. These fish are weating Rapala Floating Minnow, Rapala X Raps, soft plastic worms and flies.

North Bay has had very live baitfish to catch. We have been throwing Gulp shrimp baits attached to a Hookup lure jig head and doing very well on sea trout to 5 pounds and jack crevalles to 4 pounds plus a 4 pound pompano.

South Bay has had plenty of action from big schools of bluefish, jack crevalles to 5 pounds, lots of sharks, lots of barracudas, snapper, grouper and Spanish mackerel. We are catchingb these fish using live baitfish under a Cajun Thunder float hooked to a Mustad Ultra Point hook and Hookup lures tipped with a Gulp shrimp and the Rapala X Raps and Rapala Twitchin Minnows.

I have not fished offshore due to the weather but I expect the bottom fishing in some of my pet spots is great and can't wait to give it a shot.

Flamingo has had its up and downs. Hurricane Irma was not very friendly to the Park. Besides knocking out most of Flamingo's facilities of which many are still down but a few of the bathrooms are now working. The outside waters have been a mess. Very dirty, green algea blooms at times and some fish kills. When the wind lays down the tripletail and large sea trout fishing has been very good. Snook, redfish, sheepshead and black drum are being caught but not in great numbers. On the backwater side when the wind lays down and the weather is warm there has been a decent large tarpon bite.
