Flamingo - Saltwater Fishing Report

The summer rains have arrived to South Florida sparking the beginning of the snook spawning season. Snook season has closed on both coasts as the fish do their romantic thing but they can still be targeted for catch and
release. I only mention this because if you have never caught a snook of size than this is the time to do it. During my last three Flamingo trips using live baits and artificial lures my clients have had over 30 shots at snook and have caught and released as many as 13 in a day up to 13 pounds.

Besides the snook that my clients are catching on light 10 pound Daiwa Lexa spinning gear and Key largo Rods, my clients have had over a dozen slot size redfish during a charter plus tarpon, ladyfish, snapper, jacks, sharks of all sizes, jacks, catfish and tripletail. We have seen deer on the road in the Park, raccoon's on the shorelines, big sea turtles, manatees that have swum right up to the boat, crocodiles and huge sharks. Bait has been easy to catch and the storms that we see on the east coast have not bothered us at all in Flamingo. Not a bad way to spend a day!
