Fishing report for this week: The FL Keys offers such a variety of fish to be found between fishing the Everglades National Park and the Gulf! The snook bite remains strong in the creek mouths, tarpon are in those same creeks and can also be found around the bridges and channels. The snapper and trout bite is excellent and the tripletail are continuing to stay around in the past couple weeks around the Gulf. Cobia should be showing up in the Gulf soon again too! www.captronhowellfishing.com
Snook season is now open on and we have been catching plenty in the past 2 weeks. The areas we have been getting hooked up are Sabal Creek and out front of Flamingo - both part of Everglades National Park. Mangrove snapper have been filling up the coolers, we're using live shrimp and the tripletail also started to show back up under the crab buoys. Tripletail will hit live shrimp, artificials and fly too. Tarpon are in the creeks and eating on a falling tide - we released a 40 lb tarpon last Friday using a live pilchard. Over the weekend we caught a few spinner sharks which always make for an action packed fight!
The weather has been beautiful. There are places to hide from the wind and still easily catch fish.
Spring Break is coming up for the kids - give Captain Ron a call and get the family out on the water!
