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!
As we all know the hurricane Irma touched down in the florida keys as well as a lot of southwest Florida. We are very sad for Key West as well as much of The Everglades and were very fortunate here in Boca Grande that the storm spared many of our homes and property.
This storm has many fish displaced currently but we hope it will give the backcountry water the good cleansing it needs. We will be looking forward to schooled spawning Redfish along with big Jacks and Bonito on the outside and blind casting the edges of the tannic water for Snook. Tailing Redfish season on low water will heat up as the water temperatures cool in the coming weeks. The small Tarpon are displaced at the moment but will fish well for the following months. The winds have subsided and make for great morning and afternoon fishing. We have openings here starting in October and look forward to seeing new faces along with returning anglers!
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!
