Eeverglades fishing reports’ Category
It has been very warm so far this winter and we need some cold weather to start the move of snook into the backcountry. The really big snook are slowly starting to trickle into the backcountry and we are getting good shots and hooking a few but they are breaking us off in the mangroves. We are also catching large mouth bass on some trips. The next couple of months will be the best time to catch a monster snook. Redfish are around year round and on the right tides we have been catching some big fish. Get in on this snook fishing if you can. I still have some opening on my calendar.
Fishing is heating up in the Everglades and Pine Island. Lots of shots at redfish and yes the snook are coming back after the freeze in 2010 that killed over 500,000 (FWCC). On this day we caught four snook over 27” with 6 or 7 smaller snook, and few redfish and one nice trout that Terry caught at the end of the day. November and December should be good if this weather stays nice. Tarpon still around as long as the weather does not get to cold!! Then the big snook really come in my area. Got my finger on the pulse!!

Steve Liesman with his biggest snook ever on fly…
March has been good for snook and lots of trout. No tarpon yet but Steve Liesman of CNBC’s squak box, sight fished this 34″ snook in 6″ of water. He got it done after many had tried but failed this month.
