My bro-in-law and I will be in Everglades City the last week of April/first week of May. We are fishing with a guide (Paul Ray) the last two days of our trip, but on our own the first two days. Staying in Everglades City, but will have rental car to travel. Only bringing fly rods. Spoke to Norm Zeigler briefly, and he recommended sight fishing for snook off the beaches around his area, and someone else said to fish along the canals off Tamiami trail. Any other suggestions? Thanks!

Fishing snook on the beach just before, during and after dawn gets hot around that time but the bite dies off fast after the sun is up. Canals are loaded with juvenile tarpon and they are starting to bite on warm days but they often get complete lock jaw.

The river up by us (Cape Coral/Fort Myers) is really good fishing during the spring months off of bars and mangroves when the tide is moving but a boat is recommended.
