It’s been a while since my last fishing report. My computer broke and I hadn’t been able to download pictures and update my website for almost three weeks now, and I finally got it back today!
As far as the fishing goes, it has been a great summer. The past two weeks I’ve been mainly fishing out of Flamingo Everglades National Park, and the fishing there has been great. There are loads of redfish pretty much everywhere from the shallow water grass flats, to the deeper creeks and points in the gulf.
The outer banks in the gulf have had a mixed bag of fish, from big trout, mackerel and really nice size mangrove snappers. The snook fishing still remains consistent in the gulf side shorelines and live bait is the way to go. There is loads of bait fish along the coast and finger mullet and pilchards have been the bait of choice.
For the rest of the month of October I’ll be mainly fishing out of Biscayne Bay and Islamorada for bonefish and permit along with some red-fishing in between.
As far as the bonefishing goes, the fall is when the big bonefish come out to play. There will be plenty of double digit bonefish being caught this fall and now is the time to come down if you want to try your shot at a trophy.
