8/22/15 Flamingo, Everglades National Park

Went to Flamingo with my buddy to catch my first Florida redfish. This was my third time at the park, I had been previously to fish offshore and another time where we almost got skunked except one slot snook. Today went much better. Finally got my first Florida redfish and my first redfish from the kayak. I caught 2 redfish, 1 mangrove snapper and two jack crevalles, my buddy caught 1 juvenile tarpon, 6 redfish, and a handful of mangrove snapper. Caught on zoom flukes in pearl and white and some other similar looking lure, I forget the name. Pics below and see the video HERE!

    I've actually caught redfish before but only on my annual fall trip to South Carolina where we catch bulls on the beach. I had never caught one in Florida until I purposely sought after them by heading out of Palm Beach or Broward. Went to Sebastian once without any luck and twice before to Flamingo.
