Everglades Still Standing

After Issac passed through South Florida I was eager to get back into the Everglades National Park and see how things were looking in some of my favorite areas to fish. There is a lot of freshwater runoff from the heavy rains and the water clarity is pretty dismal but the fishing remains solid. On a short 3 hour trip to Flamingo we were rewarded with Gator Trout, Snook to 37 inches and a pleasant surprise from some Triple Tail hanging around channel markers. Most of my trips have been focused on Snook but we have recently been venturing out to some of the deeper wrecks up the coast in the Gulf of Mexico. Me and my guests have been catching and releasing  Permit, Snook, Redfish and a lot of Gag and Goliath Grouper. The Permit have been sketchy after the recent storm but seem to be favoring live Shrimp instead of their usual preferred meal of Crabs. During the summer months these wrecks can  hold a ton of fish and you never really know what you might bring up. The Reds are still all over the bights east of Flamingo and may need a few days to return to their normal feeding patterns after Issac. The fishing will remain solid and will only continue to get better as conditions return to normal.
