Chokolosee, Everglades city area was off the chart

Fishing this week in Chokolosee, Everglades city area was off the chart. The Gulf or Mexico wreck fishing is Hot!!! My clients and caught a total of 9 Permit this week. These fish ranged from 18-25 lbs. We caught all of these fish on live crabs. We also found a large school of Tarpon ranging from 40-100 lbs 0n one of the offshore wrecks. We hooked several fish , but never boated any. This time of year the Gulf Of Mexico is full of Spanish Mackerel. These fish are ranging from 1-3 lbs. These fish can be caught on artificial and live baits, and make a lot of fun for everyone.

Lets go to the Mangroves, I have one word for the Red fishing AWESOME. The Redfish population is at an all time high. An average day in the Everglades National Park area is around 40 Redfish boated and some days near 70-80 fish boated. These fish are ranging in size from 18”- 27” with several fish over 30”. It doesn’t seem to matter what area we fish, we are catching Redfish from the Pavilion Key area down the coast through Lostmans river to the Rogers, Broad, and the Harny rivers. We are fishing the river mouths, oyster bars and Mangroves. Bait of choice is a finger Mullet. We have caught a few Snook this week ranging from 20”- 33” but only a few!!

Tight Lines,
