As I look back over the last year I can only feel blessed to be able to do what I do and live here in the Everglades. Sometimes I can tend to take it for granted and then I'll take someone out thats never experienced The Everglades and see their expressions and listen to their comments and it all comes back into perspective.
Happy Holidays everyone !
Even though I've caught a few nice fish and had some some good reports recently from others the bite has been tough on a couple of recent trips. There have been a couple of cold fronts come through (another will be here tomorrow) and water temps have dropped and the winds seem to have been nonstop. Those fishing for sea trout and sheepshead in the bay and outside islands have been catching a lot of good size fish, along with some pompano, some whiting and sand trout. I've been mainly concentrating on the backwaters catching a lot of midsize snook although I've seen a few monsters. Juvenile tarpon have been scarce but that could change any day. On the last couple of trips we've also caught a few nice redfish along with big jacks which are always fun to catch.
