October, November & December

We have just about gone full circle for the year --The tarpon are not gone but have thinned way down and the first good cold fronts will send the remainder back into the gulf of Mexico for the winter- patch fishing still good when weather permits- Emmm good fresh yellowtail snapper for dinner--The water has started cooling down and the Park fishing will begin to build into the nonstop action that we enjoy in the winter, Snook are beginning to school up and hungry ,the Redfish and Sea trout are moving out of the gulf into all the channels and Islands of the Everglades National Park-a light tackle dream for sure!

Snapper fishing for the kiddies is good and judging by the smiles so far Dad's a hero and mom gets sometime in the sun on the beach--wink!

Back on the flats it is the hunt for the elusive grey ghost [bonefish] of the flats it continues on ,the permit are offshore on the wrecks spawning, still plenty of bonnet head sharks and cudas to help keep your casting sharp.
