Man, is it ever cold down here this week. Since the week before Christmas the weather has been touch and go. I have been fishing in nice weather and fishing in very cold weather. Have we been catching fish? You bet'cha. I think the fish have finally got use to the cold but hope it doesn't get any colder as we might just loose some snook do to extremely cold water temp. Trout season opened on the 1st of Jan and it has proven to be a very good season for nice BIG Trout. We are also catching Redfish, Snook, Baby Tarpon, Whitting, Gray Trout, Silver Trout, Sheepshead, Blackdrum, Snapper, Ladyfish, Jacks and Flounder.

The North wind has been blowing for a couple weeks, but it seems like forever. This blows the water out of the back waters and doesn't let the tide bring it back up to normal. When this happens we start to fish our winter holes. Different types of fish come and go through these holes as the tides flows in or out. This type of fishing can be very exciting cause you never know what you are going to catch or get ahold of in these deep spots. It might be a 100 lb tarpon or a 10 lb snook....ya just never know.

Okay, we just got good news that the weather is going to start getting warmer in a couple days and will be back into the mid to high 70's by the end of the week. (Jan 16)

I am posting some winter fishing pictures including New Years Eve camping trip for you to enjoy. These will give you an idea of how the weather here in SW Florida, Everglades National Park/10,000 Islands bounces up and down, but more days than not the weather is quite nice and sunny.
