Everglades Fishing Report 4, 2010

Here we are into the middle of April already...finally, we are just starting to feel like things are starting to get back to normal from an unusually cold and windy winter. The fishing has been good even with the wind blowing 20-25 on many days. I was talking with several other captains and one of them said he couldn't find any trout in places he normally fished, but there had been nothing normal about this winter and spring so with that in mind it was just a matter of hunting for them and not going back to our same ole spots. However in the last couple weeks, the fish are starting to be where they normally would be for this time of year. We are catching lots of big trout....the biggest on my boat so far is 26"...with lots of fish over 20 inches. These fish are really fun to catch and put up a good fight.

While we are fishing for trout we are also catching pompano, large permit, small cobia, sharks, mackerel, blue fish, blue runners, ladyfish, and jacks. Needless to say there is quite a lot of action to keep you and your captain busy while fishing out on the flats. When the tide is right we are also catching redfish, black drum and snook.

Fishing will continue to be good and even get better as summer approaches. May is the time of year we start to catch our big snook as they start to get into schools for their spawn.

The evening rains haven't started yet, but are sure to come in time. Unless we have a dry summer....never know.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy while you're planning your next fishing trip.
