Saturday, October 15, will be the outing for Everglades City.
Tomorrow evening, October 11, we will have a logistics meeting at the club at 7:30. The boat and kayak launch points will be reviewed. All the secret spots to fish will be disclosed.
Bridge fishing, Kayak fishing in Chokoloskee Bay, or Flats Boat fishing in the Gulf with access through the Baron River.
Tom will be bringing Piza so we can chow down and enjoy the planning. This planning opportunity is special since we missed the bullet on Hurricane Matthew.
October 15 is the first day of Stone Crab Season for the whole world. All stone crabs are caught and process through Everglades City. The plan is to fish in the morning (after breakfast at the local cafe), until about 1:30. Then we will have lunch at Triad Seafood Market & Café, with Stone Crabs.
Everglades City is 1 1/2 hours from Miami, same as Flamingo. An early morning drive is across Tamiami Trail. Alternative is to spend Friday and even Saturday evenings like Carmen and me.
We will stay at River Wilderness Resort, but there are also Everglades City Motel, the Captain’s Lodge, and Outdoor Resorts (at Chokoloskee).
Start planning this minute. Planning is more than half the fun.
Hope to see you there.
