I am at Flamingo again today with Thomas and his 2 friends Scott and Mark. They are from Australia and haven’t seen each other for a while. I am starting out late again today which I don’t typically do but it is still a bit cold and its 12 o’clock. We started off with a great Trout bite close to Flamingo, we are only a half our into the trip and got more fish than the day before. I said let’s try something different and ran west to East Cape again. We sat in there again today and watched as the other boats caught nothing. We had a Black Drum and a Jack and I couldn’t take it anymore. I moved around and kept running into other guides all with the same “no bite info”. I said, lets go and I ran until I found clean water all the way out at Sandy Key. The Trout bite was good and they were happy as they killed a case of beer and caught up with some great stories. The Aussies are truly story tellers!
We ran back towards Flamingo in some nasty north chop but they continued to drink beer and tell stories, we made a couple more stops caught more Trout, Jacks and Ladyfish.
It was time to go and we made the best of a tough day!
The last few days were tough but hopefully we will get to some stable weather conditions soon. The big Tarpon should make their way into the back country as soon as we get a week of warm weather. This is something every angler need to experience in their, life big fish on light gear or fly rods.
We have Tarpon on all of Miami Beach, the early morning and late afternoon bite has been good and getting better the next few months. Flamingo, Whitewater Bay and the Gulf of Mexico are all reachable by driving thru Everglades National Park. It is one of the coolest places you can fish! if you would like to try give me a call at 305 333 8149.
