Fishing Forecasts

Fishing Report September 25th 2011

This weekend proved to be awesome! The air temperatures got up to 89 degrees, which is a little more comfortable than the mid 90's we saw last week. We will start to see a gradual change in water temperatures as we head towards fall weather patterns. We are still leaving the dock at 7:00am in order to get a good 4-6 hours of fishing in before the bite wanes from the heat of the day. Here in Chokoloskee and the Everglades City areas of the Everglades National Park, we are catching an awesome amount of Redfish and Speckled Sea Trout right now. On Saturday we had out Rick Lademann from Naples along with his father. They caught a nice amount of Redfish, some Trout, a couple of Flounder, and a few Snapper. Some nice fillets went home with those guys for sure! The Snook bite remains decent on the outside. Next month we will begin to fish the rivers again with their anticipated annual migrations towards the back country. Come book a fishing charter with Captain Rapps Charters and get in on the action!
