It’s Florida, folks, better yet, it’s Everglades. We sighted two on a flat in Setting Moon Bay, believe it or not, this is the smaller one. You don’t get ‘em like this every day, not by a long shot, but wouldn’t you have liked to have been there? We caught about nine or ten today, sightfishing on the flats, snook on fly, Everglades Style!

The reds are in. We fished south today, working a high falling tide at daylight. We sighted a few reds right away but as the tide fell and the off shore wind cleared the water they were everywhere. There were singles, triples and schools of a dozen or more cruising the flats. These fish are just arriving, each one we caught had a light coppery color and remoras on their backs. It was tough to get them to bite, I’m guessing that is a function of being fresh in from the Gulf, and that will change over the days and weeks to come. Here’s Dr. Dan Newman with one of the reds he sighted in the clear waters of Typhoon Bay.

Clyde Foster and Stew Nelson on the foredeck. Here’s Clyde with a redfish, fresh in from the Gulf. This fish had a remora on it’s back when we landed it. Sightings of red’s are increasing daily.
