Great day in the Everglades National Park yesterday with my buddy Mike fishing on his awesome HPX-18. That boat will fly!  Post-front, blue bird sky with warming temperatures. These transition periods present great opportunities to catch multiple species. We fished from the East Cape Canal to the Shark River area and inside in Oyster Bay before making the run back to Flamingo (just in time to exit before the barrier went up at West Lake at 7:00 p.m.!). Big numbers of black drum, red drum, snook, trout (with a few snapper, cat fish and jacks thrown in) and 1 tarpon in the air early in the morning. Surprisingly (based on recent reports) we caught more redfish than snook, though we had 7 or 8 really nice robalo. The black drum and most of the trout were caught with live shrimp on jig heads as were some of the snook and redfish.  Many other snook, red fish, trout and the tarpon hit soft plastics (mostly paddle tails in natural color with some sparkle and chartreuse tails) rigged weedless.  Here are a few pictures from the day.

Glad ya'll got in on the bite! All weekend was beautiful. Fishing was nothing short of stellar for us in the 10k yesterday!! I really love the new spots that Irma created. 

Whats up with the HB shirt?! 🤔

Dave likes to remind us of his sequester to the Dark Side when out on the HPX - :)
