Full moon with some light winds and a big falling tide means snookin under the lights. Have a few trips this weekend fishing after dark for snook. Here’s a picture from a trip a few weeks ago.
Pushed off into the jungle before dawn today in a light steady rain. The snookies are making a very nice comeback in the backcountry. Hammered the shorelines with fly rods and were rewarded with fish ranging from 12 inches to 24 inches. Got into a few baby tarpon as well.
Here’s the fly that has been working well in the Glades.
I have been tying a new fly for LargeMouth and Peacock Bass in the Glades. It’s a baitfish pattern that resembles a Mayan cichlid and they can’t get enough of it. This past week we have had some violent bites.
If you catch the tide right you can have epic days of casting at tailing redfish on the flats close to Flamingo. Here’s Bill with one of those fish.
Fished a new client today in the Everglades for Largemouth and Peacock Bass. 30+ fish on fly in the four hours that we fished. Nothing really big but alot of action. Missed a few big ones. Not bad for a 4 hour trip.
Good Tarpon action the last few days down in Flamingo. John Richards of Pembroke Pines, Fl casted to rolling tarpon all morning and landed them from 5lbs. to 40lbs.
Martin was with me last night sight shooting snook with a fly rod off the dock lights in West Palm Beach. Hooked a few and landed a nice sub slot snook. Water still extremely dirty from the fresh water that’s being pumped into the Intercoastal. I hope they stop that soon.
Its been a great summer for redfishing up on the flats and should only get better as we move into the cooler months. Alot of these fish tailing and swimming in very skinny water. It’s been alot of fun chasing these fish with a fly rod and light tackle spin rods. Here’s a picture from the last couple of weeks fishing down in Flamingo.
