January Fishing in the Everglades

/January-Fishing-in-the-Everglades/

Many Floridians prefer to spend a bright, sunny day casting their lines out on the water. Luckily, there is plenty of perfect weather and thousands of spots to catch some big fish in South Florida. Whether you like fishing the intercostal or the deep blue sea, you are guaranteed to reel in some beautiful fish and aquatic life; but, don’t forget to check out fishing in the Everglades.

If you have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to go fishing in the Everglades, January is a great time to start. January brings colder weather, which forces all kinds of fish to wander together throughout the shallows of the Everglades. The shallows range from 18 inches to three feet of water, making it perfect to spot fish and reel them in.

Snook, Redfish, and even massive Tarpon are commonly spotted in the waters of the Everglades throughout the early winter months, since they migrate to the calmer backwaters for warmth. While the rest of the country is buried in snow, Floridians are soaking up the rays and fetching their boats to go fishing in the seemingly endless miles of Everglades wetlands and waterways. Rent a Jon boat and fishing rods from our on-site rental facility, and purchase bait and tackle to go fishing off our docks or through the Everglades waterways. You can even join in on one of the January fishing tournaments held in the Everglades to really have some fun and test your skills.

Just coming to visit? If you wish to scout some of the local fish, opt for an Everglades airboat tour and learn all about the land and the most popular fish inhabiting the area; you may even see an alligator or two.
