Chokoloskee & Everglades City Fishing Report 5/3/13

5/3/13 Spring time heat and sunny days has warmed up the water temperatures here in the near coastal waters and river areas of the 10000 Islands of the Everglades National Park and are now ranging between 78 and 83 degrees in the back country areas. Fishing for Redfish and Trout has been productive using DOA soft plastics on 3/8oz red and chartreuse jig heads. We have been working them over 4'-5' outside flats on the incoming tides with great results on Trout, and the Reds have been hitting the same DOA jigs and also shrimp under popping corks around oyster bars and mangrove shorelines. See photos below of Captain Kurt's crew's fantastic catches here in Chokoloskee and Everglades City this past week.  It 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.
