Flamingo

I was only on the water twice this past week because I have been working on getting the Pathfinder up and running.  I am very excited about this boat because it gives us a lot of different options when it comes to fishing.  I plan on using it mostly for tarpon fishing at night in downtown Miami during the shrimp run, which will start in a few weeks and last until the summer.

Now back to the fishing, with the weather being so warm, the tarpon are THICK in the interior of the Glades.  They will continue to hang around until we get another cold front.  The redfishing has been pretty good, both out front and along the coast.
The fishing around the dock lights for snook is red hot right now and with the small baits, the advantage goes to the fly fisherman.  A great way to start if you were ever thinking about picking up a fly rod.
