Snook Season

Everything is finally coming together. There have been nice cool mornings over the last few days with warmer afternoons. The next couple of months should be ideal conditions for fishing especially for larger snook and juvenile tarpon in many of the backcountry areas, There are never no guarantees but seeing and catching some nice fish recently are very good signs for the foreseeable future. Even though the fishing can be great, when we get into June the daily rains typically begin and temperatures will soar so now is a good time to kayak fish this area of The Everglades.
For those that have been following some of the devastation of the waters and the fishery from the state government dumping polluted water out of Lake Okeechobee, it hasn't had any effect on this area of the state (yet). For those uninformed about this disaster and other concerns about how the state is trying to cover up the water problems please check out this site:
