In the Flamingo area of the Everglades National Park fishing will be best in the deep creeks and backwaters that are sheltered. It is the traditional time of year to throw plugs and flies at laid up tarpon in Whitewater Bay and beyond. Some of the best places are just off the Wilderness Waterway. Approach quietly and be patient. The tarpon here can be subtle, at times. And on the other hand, can present themselves by rolling and making great disturbance often by leaping after a mullet. Long rods with baits that can be cast at great distance prove best. Near the same spots but closer to the "wood" you can find the snook, and sometimes, redfish. I fish for the seatrout between the islands often. Bring plastic lures and popping corks.

Other alternatives to enjoy our south Florida winter inshore fishery is take take out the canoe and find a backwater trail. This is the most enjoyable time of year to do that due to the pleasant climate and the fact that water levels are low. Bring plenty of drinking water and check your maps to see if sections are navigable. I like to fish some of the backwater lakes this time of year for snook and baby tarpon.

I want to personally thank all of you for reading my articles and fishing reports/forecasts. Please visit my websites for more information and updates.
