Post storm fish have been on fire! Everglades and Naples fly fishing has been productive for mid-sized tarpon, big snook and redfish. With the tannic water these fish will be on the top and ready to eat. Its a great time to fish The Everglades when everyone is dealing with wind, rain and other boats! None of those bother us in the protection of the tall mangrove trees there is always somewhere to hide. Adult Tarpon fishing was good prior to the front and should stabilize after the water settles and clears. I just love the time after the rains as it seems like the place is flushing out and as good as it gets. Come inquire about a fly fishing guide in the everglades and ten-thousand islands.
I teach about the estuary and encourage first time fly fisherman and plug fisherman alike. I am passionate about both kinds of angling here in the everglades and ten-thousand islands. I am located south of naples so can always meet up for some fly-casting lessons or refer you to one of my master casting instructors in the area. I look forward to your next fishing adventure in the beautiful Everglades!
We are in our rainy season here in Boca Grande which can be some of the best spilt days or early morning fishing. Plug fishing is especially good when the tannin waters are present. These fish are sitting in warm water and looking to attack on top. Tarpon on the fly remains stable as well as big snook on topwater plugs. We are coming into our Redfish spawning season where schools of oversized redfish will be present. Fly fishing in Boca Grande is about to heat up for our sub-species Redfish and Snook! We will be offering day and overnight trips in The Everglades (Everglades City) as well as Ten-Thousand Islands (Naples) starting in November. So weather you are looking to spin or fly fish, lets get out there and stab something!
Finally got some cold fronts to put these fish where they belong for the winter time…the the super shallow waters. Sight casting for snook and redfish is at its pinnacle here in Charlotte Harbor this time of year. The big snook just got into the back and are willing to play ball with a well placed fly. I like to get to the places most people wont fish and have my clients wade at low tide for these trophies or pole a quiet shoreline on the higher stages of the tide. Redfish are still tailing on the flats as well on the right tides. Weather looks great for the coming week!
