February Everglades Fishing Update 2“The Florida Everglades is one of the best places to take your children fishing. It will get them hooked for life on some of the most action-packed adventures you can embark on. During these cooler months of the year, water levels drop making for a great time fishing in the long canal systems.

I had the pleasure of fishing with Bryan and his son Luke. They were traveling from the cold northern state of New York. While doing so, Florida bass fishing was most certainly on the list of things to do. They were staying over on the west coast of Florida and within miles of their destination, they landed themselves in the Florida Everglades along Alligator Alley.

Calm winds and light showers made for an interesting day on the water. The fish were active right from the start of this fishing trip. Artificial baits and live bait were used on this charter. The best artificial baits to use are soft-plastic flukes, senkos, and hard topwater baits. Live bait works exceptionally well, especially for Everglades peacock bass. Numbers of bass were caught on this fishing trip. Most of the fish caught were largemouth bass along with oscars and cichlids. The action is getting really good.

Bryan and his son Luke had a fantastic time fishing in the Everglades. I am most certainly looking forward to getting them back out on the water soon!”- Capt Mark Rogers

“It is not every day that you get the chance to travel to Florida. Every trip can be truly amazing, only if you include an outdoor adventure. Soaking up the Florida sunshine while setting the hook into largemouth and peacock bass is a great way to get outdoors.

I had the pleasure of fishing with Richard and his son Jack. They were traveling from Colorado looking to spend some time in FL. While doing so, they wanted to explore what the Florida Everglades had to offer. Peacock bass was one of the main species on their list to catch and we made it happen for them.

Sunny and breezy conditions made for a fantastic day on the water. Both peacock bass and largemouth bass were biting on this fishing trip. They got what they were looking for landing over 20 bass on this trip. The peacock bass are very aggressive towards live bait and the largemouth enjoys eating soft-plastic baits. You can catch both species all trip long when visiting and exploring Alligator Alley!

Richard and Jack both had an amazing time fishing in the Everglades. I am looking forward to getting back out on the water again with them soon!” – Capt Nick Pasquarello

Fishing with Captain Joe Gruny

“Some of the best adventures and fishing trips are the ones that you get to spend multiple days with a client. I love to get to know new and repeat clients on two-day fishing trips. I had the pleasure of fishing with Howard and Julie, who were traveling from Minnesota to escape the cold weather.

Unfortunately, it seems like they brought it with them to Florida. On their 2-day fishing adventure, South Florida experienced a cold front that did not slow the bite down. Several locations stay very consistent even though the temperatures change.

The Florida Everglades, especially along Alligator Alley is most certainly one of them. Howard and Julie had a blast catching over 40 largemouth bass on their fishing trips. As the water continues to drop, the bite will get even better.

All-in-all, Howard and Julie had a blast catching bass on their fishing adventure. I am looking forward to seeing what I can help them catch on their next adventure!” – Capt Joe Gruny
