Chokoloskee & Everglades City Fishing Report 5/21/13

Warm weather and light breezes have made another fantastic week of fishing in the Everglades National Park.The near coastal waters and river areas of the 10000 Islands of the Everglades National Park and are now ranging between 81 and 84 degrees in the back country areas. Captain Kurt, Captain John, and Captain Brandon have been targeting Redfish and Spotted Sea Trout the past couple of weeks with many nice 20"-26" Redfish being caught, 16"-21" Spotted Sea Trout too. Big black drum have been around and Capt Kurt and one of his charters got into a school of 20-26 pounders on light tackle... talk about a "Blast"!   Snook have been cruising the near coastal shore lines with some nice 20"-31" Snook being caught on a few of our charters. Most of our recent fishing has been with soft plastic jigs, buck tail jigs, and shrimp under popping corks. The offshore fishing for Permit with live crabs has been really good too. See photos below of fantastic catches here in Chokoloskee and Everglades City this past week on Captain Rapps Charters.  It is warm and mild out which is what makes May a fantastic time of year for fishing in the Ten Thousand Islands of the Everglades National Park out of Everglades City & Chokoloskee Florida.
