Will be visiting the Everglades for the first time the middle of February. Camping in Flamingo. We have a guide for one day but will be DIY for 3 other days. Just looking for any tips or fly recommendations. Would like to primarily target snook and tarpon of any size.

I am not looking for you to give me your spots. Just looking for tips and tricks to help get my wife and I on some fish.

Thank you for your help in advance.

When? I'm camping there with my son and some friends weekend of 15-17th. If you want to fish "out front" then I can tell you that you don't have to run far. draw a semi circle with the middle point at the outside ramp for less than a 1/2 mile and tons of fish can be caught. If you are going into the back country then that's a different story. Who did you book?

We should be there Feb 13-17. Thank you very much for the info.

We will spend time both out front and in the backcountry. We want to hopefully hook into juvi tarpon (those little things just look like a blast), snook, and if the weather works out a bonefish up in Biscayne hopefully.

So we'll be there the same time swing by our camp for warm beer and bad fishing tales. =) As for spots out front you could spend several days fishing from the sough drains to snake bite and out no further than Palm and Murray Keys.

Be sure to take the online course to get your boating permit before you go. It is now required to boat in the park. Also get a map of the pole and troll areas and channels and be aware of the times of high and low tides.

Take the free online course and print out the permit or put a photo of it on your phone. It's not a difficult course. Mostly common sense. I had mine laminated. The fee to get into the park is $20.00 and the fee to camp is about $23.00 a night. If over 65 or a disabled vet you can get a lifetime pass. It used to be free, but now costs $80.00 for a lifetime pass.
