I was out the past few days with Capt. Ned Small sight shooting reds with the fly rod. We launched out of Chokoloskee and fished south towards Lostmans River. Saw fish at every spot we looked at. The morning was fast and furious with schools of reds and black drum crawling all over the place in very shallow water.
The redfishing around Flamingo continues to be very hot. We have had some high winds the past few days and this makes fishing the flats at times a challenge. Fishing out of the HPX-Micro definitely makes it alot easier poling in shallow water in windy conditions.
This has been a great week of weather and fishing. We are catching redfish, tarpon, and snook on most trips. Late summer is my favorite time to be on the water, not only because the fishing is so good, but because of the wildlife that is present during this time. Each trip out were seeing gators, crocs, sharks and a plenty of birds wading the flats. Just another reason why we are so lucky to be able to fish in the Everglades.
