I want to first introduce myself. My name is Capt Charlie Phillips. I own and operate Hope Fishing Adventures out of Everglades City. I run inshore, backcountry and offshore trips. I was made aware of this forum from my membership in the Florida Guide Assocation. Wanted to start sharing reports from fishing trips and being a part of the forum. Fishing has been outstanding the past few months in my area. I have averaged about 3-4 trips each week and the most consistent bite has been the redfish. This is one of the best years that I can recall for reds in the Everglades. Livebait, chunk bait, arties its not seemed to really matter. They are everywhere. The snook bite has been strong as well. Here are some pics of recent trips. Look forward to sharing reports of future trips.
