12/14/15 Fishing Report: Everglades City, Chokoloskee, & Goodland, FL

The water temperatures here in the near coastal waters and river areas of the 10000 Islands and the Everglades National Park have been ranging this week between 70 and 73 degrees. November started out to be a stellar month and the Redfish and Black Drum bite was nothing but spectacular. Live bait flooded the area and the fish cooperated. Just prior to Thanksgiving the wind kicked up and stirred things up a bit so we had to work a little harder, but still got into some awesome days of fishing. We are now at our normal start to our winter fishing patterns. The flats are filling up with some real nice speckled sea trout, the deep cuts in the rivers are loading up with sheepshead, the oyster bars in the rivers are holding a few decent reds, and lots of other action fish are now in the area both on the flats and inshore waters. Below are photos of recent trips where Lou and Jimmy caught an identical pair of 30" snook, Kevin caught a beautiful sheepshead, and Kevin, Ray, and Bob got some fantastic eats of reds and black drum. Isn't it time you got out and fished with us from Chokoloskee, Everglades City, or Goodland? Be sure to get on the web site and book a trip with any of our fantastic fleet Captains.
