Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

My summer business has tapered off a bit and I always take advantage of that to spend some quality down time with my family. In the past few months I went on a cruise to the Caribbean with my wife, a short trip to Islamorada with friends and a great trip to Key West with the family. In between these short breaks I did get in a few fishing charters.

In North Bay sea trout, snappers, jacks, ladyfish, snook and small tarpon are scattered throughout the bay.

Offshore there have been all the bonitos you wish to catch.

In Flamingo the snook fishing continues to be red hot and there are sea trout, redfish, snappers, ladyfish, jacks, tripletail and lots of big sharks to catch.

This past week I was in Key West with my family and soon to be son-in law Doug. The wind blew everyday at 15 to 25 making the water dirty and rough but we still managed to catch lobsters and quite a few fish. Doug caught his largest fish ever a barracuda that weighed in at just over 25 pounds that ate a live pilchard hooked to a Mustad #4 Ultra ever tarpon!

The fishing should continue like this for most of the summer!

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!

So there you have it. Be flexible as to where you fish and you are sure to get in on the action.

Miami Fishing Forecast:

Summer 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 the birds will be leaving but the scenery will always be there and there is always the unbelievable sunrise and sunset pictures. Fishing for snook, redfish, snapper, sea trout, tarpon, jacks ladyfish, sharks, tripletail, cobia and more will be as exciting light tackle fishing as one could wish for.

Target Species:

Snook, Tarpon, Redfish, Sea Trout, Dolphin, Sailfish, Cobia, Mackerel, Shark, Tripletail, Grouper, Snapper
