Fishing Forecasts

Fishing Report 10/25/12

10/25/12 The water temperatures have dropped about 5 degrees in the last 2 weeks in the near coastal waters and river areas of the 10000 Islands of the Everglades National Park. Today the water temperature was right at 80 degrees in most areas that we fished. The morning tide was incoming which is my favorite tide to fish right now. We have been using live shrimp under popping corks, and also gulp shrimp on small jig heads. Our 4 hour morning 1/2 day trip today was productive despite the wind and the changing barometer with Hurricane Sandy cruising up from Jamaica into the Atlantic coast. Ken and June were able to pull a lot of slot size reds to the boat. I do expect the fishing to be poor tomorrow and Friday with predicted 30+mph winds. The weather man says things will straighten up by Sunday and we are looking forward to a beautiful Fall week the last few days of October and into November. Fall is here and It's my absolute favorite time of year for fishing in the Ten Thousand Islands of the Everglades National Park out of Everglades City & Chokoloskee Florida.
