  1. Fly Fishing
    New to the forum and I could sift through older posts but figured I’d post as well. Headed down to Everglades for the first time next month and was looking for color suggestions for tying up some Seaducers, Hot Lips, Dedeaux poppers, Kwans and Clousers. Any other types of flies and patters...

  3. Fishing Reports
    Met up with a group of friends for a trip to the Everglades and 10K Islands for some camping and fishing. Most of us launched out of Port of the Islands and met up at the island we were camping at. First day was great weather but then the winds picked up each day after that until the day we...
  4. Fly Fishing
    Not looking for flies/spots/anything that would cause drama. Just looking for some 3rd party info on how y'all read tarpon either laid up or cruising the beach. I've heard that fish that are riding high and slow are more likely to eat than the fish that are cruising along in the deeper section...

  6. General Discussion
    Looking to learn of anyones experiences with a Towee in South Florida. I am sure the skiff would do well in the glades and small waterways, but how would it fair off the south coast, keys, or biscayne bay. Can it manage big water well enough to fish for monster tarpon?
  7. Florida Gulf Coast
    Hey all. I'll be in Naples visiting my folks over New Years week and looking for tips on inshore fishing opportunities. I have an inflatable kayak available for access. Any thoughts? Also, I would love to see an Ankona skiff if someone has one in the Naples area.

  10. Fly Fishing
    Hello everyone, A friend and I are planning a last second trip down to Flamingo this weekend. We both rarely ever get the chance to fish together since he lives up north, so he's making the long drive south in hopes of catching a few fish and having a good time in the glades. Just wanted to...
  11. Fly Fishing
    Just finished up a successful camping trip to the Everglades last weekend. Even though its not 100% fly fishing, I thought you all would enjoy. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1LwmkXQQ38RfIzGmxW52jpt8g1MsYtQKq/view
  12. Fishing Reports
    Just finished up a camping trip with a few boats in the Everglades back country out of Choko. The weather was perfect and the warm winter led to super productive fishing. Small snook were abundant to put it lightly. I think we landed over 200 snook in three days. Didn't find the big ones as we...

  14. Florida Gulf Coast
    I have been camping in the Everglades for a few years now but I have never visited any of the beach sites. I am camping out of a skiff and was wondering which beach sites are the easiest to access by boat?
  15. Fly Fishing
    Title says it all. Headed to the Everglades for a few days coming up. Considering all the gear needed for camping and fishing for 4 days, I don't want to bring anything extra. I have rods for snook/reds covered but will be targeting the big girls in the rivers or laid up fish if we can find...
  16. General Discussion
    I know we have all seen the videos of people taking house boats deep into the Everglades with the skiffs in tow. Has anyone here ever done that? I am curious if anyone in that area knows of any marinas renting enclosed house style boats. A quick search online has turned up nothing for me. Any...

  20. Fishing Reports
    Got back from an everglades camping trip last weekend. The cold front changed things up a bit from our original plan but still found a lot of fish. Put in at Chokoloskee, found reds in the bays, snook in the creeks, and trout on the bars. Overall great trip. The cold kept the mosquitos away for...
