Capt. Vinnie Biondoletti reported good backcountry fishing in flamingo today! Matt Myers and his friend Jim caught 40 redfish and several snook today. They fished the Flamingo area all day. The winds were strong about 20 mph. Lots if jacks and lady fished mixed in. Capt. Rick Stanczyk picked up a late afternoon half day today, they stayed close to home and fished some muds that had lots of nice trout in them, about 2 dozen total. Also in there were several nice size ladyfish and a few mackerels. Shrimp has been doing the trick and is the bait of choice here in the winter time when the water cools down in the backcountry.
