Those of you who fish the flats out of Flamingo know the predatory pecking order has changed. The venerable spot-tail, better known as redfish has virtually taken over the waters around Flamingo’s outside flats. I found out one day last week.

If you haven’t experienced this phenomenon, just reach out to Benny Blanco, master guide of Flamingo, Florida Bay and beyond. He knows where to be and when to be there. You won’t believe the numbers!!  Plenty of nice trout, too.

Here are some of the images from that day. Click on them and enjoy.

Having been raised in in an environment surrounded by ocean and bay in Miami, FL, I took to the world of fishing in a big way starting at the age of five. In the past 15 years, my fishing experiences have come to include related photography. I travel to many venues throughout the Western Hemisphere to photographically promote fishing destinations' vast offerings to the avid light tackle angler. My images have been portrayed in several publication media which include "FLORIDA SPORT FISHING MAGAZINE", "DESTINATION FISH MAGAZINE", "SOUTH CAROLINA SPORTSMAN", "THE HERALD" (Miami). I also maintain a small photo gallery on my blogsite:
