It’s high summer in the Everglades, we’re leaving the dock early in the morning, before sunrise, around five thirty. The fishing has been good, you need to have a plan for your route though, you have to assess the weather every day just like in winter time, and the tides. We’ve been trying to take advantage of that morning bite, snook and red’s primarily, and lots of chances at small tarpon too. I haven’t seen any black drum these past few days but lots of clear, shallow water sightfishing for snook and reds. Here’s a photo of John Frohnhoefer with a red from Discovery Bay, we caught lots of ‘em, just like this one and we lost one that was way bigger. The Big One Got Away!
