    Life is Good in Flamingo

    The weather has been extremely hot but the fishing in the Park has been really good with a lot of quality fish landed in the past week. The best time to focus your efforts during the late summer months is definitely early in the morning and late in the afternoons. Fish are certainly more active when water temps are cooler and will be much more open to chasing an artificial lure during these times. Justin Guzman and I decided to venture out on some numbers for wrecks of the coast and ran into some Gag Grouper and Snapper but nothing spectacular. After blazing around Florida bay all morning we returned to some reliable spots that have produced some incredible summertime fishing. On a recent trip my guests caught several double headers on quality Snook as well as a fish up to 37 inches. It seems as the fish are stocking up in certain areas so once you find a couple fish there are probably several more around. I highly recommend using a little heavier tackle because these larger Snook don't get so big by being dumb. They slurp down your bait and head directly for the structure. In order to prevent these fish from being lost I use a 30lb spinning outfit with a 50 lb fluorocarbon leader. The Redfish, Seatrout and Snook have been available on the flats east of Flamingo and the Snake Bight areas. Topwater plugs have been very effective early in the morning when water temperatures are low. We also jumped a couple 100 lb Tarpon on Rapala Skitterwalks in less than 18 inches of water which was quite a sight. Sharks are absolutely everywhere and can provide some good battles during slow periods in the tide or when you cant seem to get on anything. Life is good in the Glades right now and the fishing will continue to be excellent. If anyone is interested in learning the waters of Flamingo or would like to enjoy some of the best Snook action in Florida feel free to contact me. Scottbrown483@gmail.com

    Nice snuke. The bull sharks usually start showing up there after we catch 2 or 3 and we have to leave so they don't eat them all.
