2/20/17 Fishing Report: Everglades City, Chokolosee, Everglades National Park

The water temperatures here in the near coastal waters and river areas of the 10000 Islands and the Everglades National Park have been warmer than average again this week, ranging between 71 and 73 degrees. The warm water has the fish in a pattern similar to what we typically see in November. The redfish bite has been great for this time of year. Live shrimp under popping corks have been the key to a successful day on the water. The bite for Trout, Sheepshead, Pompano, Black Drum,  Snapper, Mackerel, along with some sharks and other fun to catch species, has been a lot of fun.  Good size winter Speckled trout are being caught in good numbers on the grassy flats. Pompano have been hitting on jigs on the grass flats too. Come fish with our guides here in the Ten Thousand Islands: Capt Kurt, Capt John, Capt Brandon, Capt Jeff, Capt James, Capt Gary, Capt Austin, and Capt Pete.  Isn't it time you got out and fished with us in the 10000 islands from Chokoloskee, Everglades City, or Goodland, FL?
