Summer of the Everglades Spot-Tail…

It feels like late August in July. That grey hazy sky has lingered over the Florida Keys for the past couple of weeks as they turn into darker hues of stormy greys in the afternoon, bringing the torrential downpour of Niagara Falls with it. Even if you weren’t soaked by the rain, you are soaked with sweat before the clock strikes noon. The summer-time doldrums are here and the heat on those slick calm afternoons can sometimes be unbearable to the normal mammal. Fortunately, the redfish seem to think otherwise. So with the usual calm days and warm water, we’ve been hitting some redfish tailing in real shallow water and fishing the occasional offshore pelagics. Here are some photos for you to enjoy…

We truly have a special fishery here in the Everglades National Park.

Stay tuned… redfish aren’t the only thing biting in the summer heat… more to come shortly…
