Charter Fishing in Flamingo

Published March 31st, 2012

As usual, the day started nice and early with a drive to the west. We launched the boat and noted that once again, the wind was blowing out of the west.This is an unfavorable wind direction because it ends up churning the water up to a disgusting color. Chocolate milk water would plague our trip once again but we knew we would catch fish regardless. Thankfully charter fishing in Flamingo sees a lot more fish than areas in and around Miami. We threw top water plugs, bucktails, and soft plastics. The conditions were piss poor but we still produced a solid mixed bag of fish. There weren’t any trophy fish but the quantity was there. We missed the 2 biggest snook of the day which was a bummer…



This is a great time of year in Flamingo and the conditions should improve as an easterly flow begins to prevail in the coming months.Catching a mixed bag of fish in tranquil waters is soothing to say the least. As usual, it was a beautiful day on the water.

Final Tally – 5 snook to 25 inches, 4 redfish to 21 inches, 12 trout to 19 inches, a black drum, over 10 mangrove snapper, some sheepshead, spanish mackerel, ladyfish, jacks, catfish, and croackers. (11 total species)
