Fishing Reports

10/27/15 Fishing Report: Everglades City, Chokoloskee, & Goodland 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 77 and 79 degrees. It has been an unseasonably windy couple of weeks and the water has been a little stirred up, however in carefully selected spots, the redfish bite has been very good and they have been our primary targets for some fantastic table fare. Most of the reds are being caught on the rising tides fishing mostly shrimp presented both live under a popping cork, and also free lined on a circle hook. Live bait has been around in decent quantities and we have been getting some snook on those live baits like live pilchards and thread herring. I like to use about 3'-4' of 40lb fluorocarbon leader with a circle hook to match the size of the bait. We have been catching some nice Black Drum this week too. Below are photos of the Axelrod crew with some slot sized reds, Jim Lupo with a Black drum, and Zaida Diaz with her first ever Snook. Isn't it time you got out and fished with us from Chokoloskee, everglades city, or goodland? Be sure to get on the web site and book a trip with any of our fantastic fleet Captains.

9/17/15 Fishing Report: Everglades City, Chokoloskee, & Goodland 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 82 and 85 degrees. We are experiencing some nice Redfish action currently. We are getting them on both rising and falling tides as long as there is decent water movement. Baits used right now are mostly shrimp presented both live under a popping cork, and also free lined on a circle hook. Some artificials are working great too including Gulp soft plastic shrimp in new penny color and 3" long. They work nicely with a red or chartreuse jig head that weighs between 1/4 and 3/8 oz. Snook are hitting live baits and are really liking the live Pilchards. We like to use about 3'-4' of 40lb fluorocarbon leader with a circle hook to match the size of the bait. Isn't it time you got out and experienced some of the best fishing in the Ten Thousand Islands and the Everglades National Park?  We fish our charters from Everglades City, Chokoloskee, and Goodland Florida.
