Long lasting cold fronts and a long period of cold water has had the water in Everglades National Park a little slower than normal, but be that as it may every day we find fish. I have said it before and I will say it again we are so spoiled here in Islamorada. What most of us guides feel is not a banner day still lives up to the expectations of our clientele, and when we have a good day most of our patrons are blown away, and when we think it is an exceptional day the client is left with life long memories. Anyway the bridges although a little slow are still producing some decent snapper action, but that the only place seemingly. The Mackerel bite in the bay has slowed, but in the gulf it is still pretty good. Snook bite around Flamingo is slow, but around areas of the cape it is holding its own. Redfish around Flamingo are making a moderate showing, their strong at the last of the tide and into the ebb. When the wind has allowed the guys have been frequently making trips to the patches and the bite out there has been topnotch. Even some unseasonable permits have made quite a show. Speaking of permit Captain Rich Burson took his party Permit fishing and they managed two Permit over twenty five pounds and both on ten pound test… Good Stuff. Sometimes it seem like there is no best or worst time maybe someday we will have a Tarpon Tournament in February, but I am not going to hold my breath. Any way come down and come see us here at World Wide Sportsman Bayside Marina, lots of things to see and do, and a lot of talented guides to choose from. Catchemup Captain Ron.
