Best fishing in November

Lorenky1Lorenky1 California Posts: 6 Greenhorn
Hello. We’re beginning to plan a trip to Florida in early November 2021. Would like to add a couple of days of guided fishing. We prefer freshwater fishing or the backcountry, as opposed to ocean fishing. The species doesn’t matter as much as good fun plentiful fishing. But we’re having a hard time finding any fish or places that are really peak in early November. We’re open to going anywhere in Florida. What fish or locations would you recommend in early November? Thanks so much

    Chokoloskee or Flamingo.... Everglades National Park fishes very well now if the weather cooperates... Send an email request and receive a brochure with color photos... by return [email protected]

    Bass fishing on Lake Okeechobee can be real good in November. With water temperature cooling, the fish are moving to shallower water. It is little early for spawn, but you could still catch a big one.

       Since you wish to have a guide be very specific what species you
    wish to catch.Water temp primary factor because some fish become
    inactive in cooler water.Others like trout and sheepshead more active,
    redfish have a wide range of comfortable conditions.

    SW Florida or the Keys probably provides the most diverse set of opportunities with good fishing and good guides, and importantly in November, options if the wind starts blowing.

    Only other place that comes to mind would be SE coast Ft pierce / Stuart / Jupiter area- Early november could be a great time to catch the tail end of the mullet run for snook and tarpon as well as the sailfish bite heating up offshore.

    So I think we will aim for bass in the Everglades. Any recommendations for good guides? Thanks

    If I was going to go for bass...I would pick east central florida.....by far.

    Take a moment and check out my fishing reports on the south Florida board here on Florida Sportsman... I’ll have a new one later today when I get a free moment.  

    Thanks for the kind words y’all. Hope. I can live up to them...

    Hold on there...
    You can do 100 Bass a day in the Everglades Conservation Areas. Might get a 5 /6 pounder but you'll get a bunch of 1 to 3 pounders. 
    Non stop action sometimes plus you get Oscars , Snakeheads , Mudfish ( fresh water Cobia ) , Mayan Chinchlids , All kinds of weird stuff. Variety South Fla. has about everywhere beat.

    Maybe you did not read what Gary S said... High water is not what you want in the glades...at all... And I don't care where the OP goes...just passing on some info to him......without blowing up the latest greatest spot...
