Chokoloskee & Everglades City Fishing Report 4/13/14

The water temperatures here in the near coastal waters and river areas of the 10000 Islands of the Everglades National Park have been ranging this week between 71 and 75 degrees. We have had a challenging couple of weeks of fishing due to the winds, but still have managed to lock into some nice fish. Primary targets have been Speckled Sea Trout on the outside flats and grassy areas, along with Redfish on the oyster bars of the outside barrier island shorelines and the mangroves in the nearshore river areas. Snook are on the move from the back country into the near coastal river areas and shore areas. Best bet for the Snook has been both live pilchards and also live shrimp under popping corks. Tarpon are showing on some of the flats. We have hooked into some just by chance while fishing for Trout.  Bonnet head and black tip sharks are hitting near shore and prove to be a lot of fun on light spin tackle. Isn't it time you got out and experienced some of the best fishing in the Ten Thousand Islands of the Everglades National Park out of Everglades City & Chokoloskee Florida? Book your trip online with any of our fantastic Fleet Captains. We are just south of Naples and Marco Island, Florida, in Everglades City and Chokoloskee.
