Fishing Report 11/25/16 Everglades City, Chokoloskee, 10000 Islands FL

The water temperatures here in the near coastal waters and river areas of the 10000 Islands and the Everglades National Park have been ranging this week between 69 and 72 degrees. The Fall fishing patterns are happening right now and we have been getting some nice Redfish, Trout, Snook, Black Drum, Flounder, Snapper and more! The average redfish size this week has been a bit smaller than a few weeks ago, however some beautiful ones are still being caught. The Snook are still loving live bait as they are headed off the gulf and now being caught in the river mouths and into the back country. We have been catching some nice Flounder on the outside oyster bars and hard bottom while targeting redfish. A good quantity of trout are being caught on the grassy flats. We also recently got into a nice bunch of Pompano on jigs. Come fish with our guides here in the Ten Thousand Islands: Capt Kurt, Capt John, Capt Brandon, Capt Jeff, Capt James, Capt Gary, Capt Austin, and Capt Pete.  Isn't it time you got out and fished with us in the 10000 islands from Chokoloskee, Everglades City, or Goodland, FL? Be sure to get on the web site and book a trip with any of our fantastic fleet Captains.

Fishing Report 7/12/16 Everglades City, Chokoloskee, 10000 Islands FL

The water temperatures here in the near coastal waters and river areas of the 10000 Islands and the Everglades National Park have been ranging this week between 87-89 degrees. Summer time fishing patterns are here and the fishing has been great. Redfish have been around in good numbers. This time of year we get a good mix of the little "Rat Reds" along with some hefty slot size fish. The trout bite remains strong and the flats have been alive with action early morning until the peak heat of the day when the bite has been slowing down a bit. The mid to late afternoon rain showers have been regular so we have been able to get some awesome 4 and 6 hour trips in without much of an issue with weather. Below are photos of some of our recent catches. Come fish with our guides Capt John, Capt Kurt, Capt Brandon, Capt Gary, and Capt Pete.  Isn't it time you got out and fished with us in the 10000 islands from Chokoloskee & Everglades City?
