Fishing Reports

Fishing Report October 4th 2011

What a beautiful weekend! We received our first cool front reminding us that the fall season is upon us. The air temperatures got down to 67 degrees in the morning, and hit 84 by mid day. The humidity was a little lower than it has been, so the comfort level was nice. Water temperatures were about 80 degrees near shore.  We will start to see a gradual change in our water temperatures as we head towards fall weather patterns. We are now leaving the dock at 8:00am. and fishing 4,6, and 8 hour charters. Here in Chokoloskee and the Everglades City areas of the Everglades National Park, we have been catching a nice amount of Redfish and Mangrove Snapper. The wind picked up Saturday afternoon, Sunday, and continues to blow a little today. This North East wind helps blow the water out on the outgoing tide and keeps it out. Because of this we did experience extreme low tides especially on Sunday. The wind also muddied up the water on the outside flats making the Trout fishing tough.  On Sunday I had out John, Lisa, and their daughter Emma from Naples. Emma proved to be the "Master Angler"  of the crew and caught a nice amount of Redfish & Mangrove Snapper. They went home with a few fillets and some Captain Rapps Seasonings! I am so looking forward to the Snook migration into the back waters next month.
Come book a fishing charter with Captain Rapps Charters and get in on the action!

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!

It's the middle of September and the outside temperatures have come down a bit this 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 right now. 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. Trout bite is also excellent.
