Classic Podcast: Fishing the Everglades with Capt. Jason Sullivan



This week I interview Capt. Jason Sullivan, of Rising Tide Charters, who fishes out of Flamingo in South Florida and covers both the southern Everglades and Florida Bay. We talk a lot about tarpon, but also redfish, snook, sea trout, cobia, and even tripletail. In the second part of the interview, we discuss the longstanding ecological problems in South Florida caused by man-made diversion of fresh water from the Everglades and Florida Bay and the over-abundance of human-directed fresh water on places on both the Atlantic Coast and Gulf Coasts.

The Everglades belong to all of us, and anyone who loves this vast wild place should be concerned about what is going on in Florida. So please don’t turn off the podcast after we get done talking about tarpon fishing. To learn more about Everglades restoration, see the great film, “Follow the Water” and explore the whole ecosystem.
