Update from Flamingo

The fishing in Flamingo has been at its finest with Snook being the stars of the show.  Although the Snook are making a strong comeback, these fish are beginning their summer spawning rituals and need to be handled with extreme care during this time of year. Action has been consistent around the mangrove shorelines and beaches on the higher stages of the tide and should continue for the next few months.  Mixed in with the Snook have been large Sea Trout to 5 pounds, Tarpon and slot Redfish. As a bonus to some of the most impressive Snook action I have seen since 2010 , we have been consistently jumping Poons to 100 pounds that have been providing some pretty awesome acrobatics. The extreme shallows of Snake Bight and surrounding areas have been teaming with tailing Redfish and gator Trout but the recent low pressure systems and high winds have made sight fishing these areas difficult.  Once the winds die slightly the fishing should heat back up and the good anglers will be ready to capitalize. Now is a great time to enjoy the Everglades National Park and visitors can expect to enjoy amazing bird life, Dolphins, Sharks and of course the incredible fishing that this amazing resource has to offer.
