Well the april flats fishing islamorada was pretty great. All kinds of fish can be caught at this time of year. The backcountry has warmed up for the most part and many fish are prowling the shallows in search of food instead of ‘holed up’ in the deeper creeks and run-offs trying to stay warm. Redfish, snook, and tarpon are often the sought after fish in the everglades. Trout make their presence known as well and are a blast to catch in shallow water. Locally in Islamorada, the florida keys flats fishing in april will yield some bonefish as well as many tarpon on the edges of the flats. The fly fishermen will line the banks all up and down awaiting their shot at the ‘silver king.’ Often poling is not required as the good local guides know the banks to set up on and you can sit and wait for fish to move by. If your looking for a great islamorada flats fishing guide then give me a call!
