    Lets catch Redfish and Snook at Everglades National Park, hosted by Craig, Saturday, April 7, 2018, 7:00 AM to Monday, April 9, 2018, 1:00 PM. Hey! You do not have to stay for all the days. Come just Saturday or Sunday or any part or parts of this Meetup you wish. Camping is an option. 🙂

    There are lots of options for fishing here. Plan “A” is to launch Saturday at 7 AM from the docks or boat ramp at Flamingo and either fish Snake Byte or the islands just to the south. For those that will stay the weekend, we will set up our tents at the back of campsite “B”.

    For Sunday we can do Snake Byte again or fish Coot Bay or any of the other numerous fishing areas nearby. The weather will help us decide. Some will have to get back Sunday night, but some may stay to fish (or get on the road) Monday morning. We will have some discussions about where we want to go for any or all of the 3 days and we can have a big camp fire for cooking and heat at the camp site.

    • Important to know
    Bring anything that you may need, including insect repellent (very important), food and drink, protective clothing, tent, sleeping bag, fishing rods, etc.

    The GPS coordinates for the launch area are 25.14205, -80.92359 to put in Google Maps. The address for the Flamingo Boat Ramp is, 1 Flamingo Lodge Highway, Flamingo, Fl 33034.

    • Looks like there is no way to add a MAPS location.

      • Our club is pretty good at using GPS coordinants, so putting them on the site will allow everybody to copy and paste them into Google Maps or Google Earth, of Mapquest, or Bing Maps, etc., etc.

    • I’ve been having to assist my dad with some health issues he’s having and that has been consuming most of my free time outside of work, but I am planning to make the drive down and get some fishing in. I will not be down there at 7am. I’m plan on launching my kayak at West Lake around 9am. I’ll will swing by the campground when I pull out and see if I can find you guys to catch up on the day. Unfortunately I will not be able to camp. I will have my VHF on channel 68 but guessing I will be out of range from Flamingo, but maybe in range if anyone fishes the north part of Snake Bite or decide to fish West Lake.
