The Glades is on fire right now! I had the plesure of taking an ole friend/client out for a super half day of Everglades backcountry fishing this weekend. The tides were'nt exactly what I like to fish..but if planned right. I figured the day could payoff.
We started off throwing topwater plugs in and near some creek mouths. Which were immediatley attacked by Snook and Jacks. Nothing to brag about(up to 26"), but the numbers were phenominal...somewhere around 50...I stopped counting. Next on the list were the Redfish. He tells me his biggest one was 21"...hmm...let me see what we can do about that.
After a short but scenic run through some of many mazes in the Glades, we pull up on quiet little bay that I know holds some bigguns. After a short lesson on how to use the the bait he was throwing. I hear it..Yous know what's coming next..."I'M ON!!" For the next hour or so it was almost non stop action on the Reds. Not only did he get his biggest(31"), but he also caught his most in a trip. It turned out to be a pretty good day after all. Even with un-favorable conditions and all. All fish we're caught on arti's , and release to fight another day. I took some pics of the day for yous to check out. Thanks for reading my report.
