Everglades fishing log June 2009;

Snook Tom and his son had two days of braking off a tarpon each day and catching a few nice snook. Both tarpon were laid up and the eats were epic but the explosions after the initial take proved to be to dramatic.  The last day was overcast and the tarpon fishing was good with rolling and laid up shots all morning until noon. When a thunderstorm sent us to the dock early.

James Overturf paid me a visit and we had some great fishing over the three days we fished. We saw tarpon each day and caught snook but on the last day we really nailed it. We ended up with a 20-30Lb tarpon and a 100+pounder to the boat with photos by 8:30am. We then went after snook and caught a few before heading in after a great day. James Overturf and his big tarpon at the boatIn the boat after the DNA sample was taken

David Philps paid me a visit and we had two great days on the water. The first day we had another monster 32″ redfish to the boat and landed a few nice snook. We had some shots at tarpon early but the full moon really slowed them down. We did catch a bunch of snook early on the last day and just before heading in for the day caught two 30″ snook on fly. Wow what a great time.   Nice 30" backcountry snook

 

Second snook on fly late in the day

Frances from Hollywood Florida fished with me this past week and had shots at over 40 snook early and a 150LB tarpon in get this 2 Feet of water. The afternoon was great as well with a few snook being caught and then Frances let me fish for 30 minutes. I hooked a big snook and broke him off in the roots. Then I hooked a nice baby tarpon in the 20LB range on the 7 wt and had a few jumps before I gave the rod to Frances to enjoy. What a day!! Lets do that again soon.

I still have a few days in the last week in June and the first week of July and would love to fill them soon. These should be some great days for a grand slam on fly or plug.  Shot me an e-mail and the photos of all these trips will be coming soon. Thanks again guys.

Late MAy 2009 Fishing Log;

Well, I don’t think I have seen so may tarpon and snook during the last two weeks of May in awhile. John Manuel and Lee Sprikles had a few days with me and what a great time we had. We jumped three tarpon each day put never got one to the boat.  The hook would pop out on the eat or they would jump off. We did manage a few nice snook each day and of course had some really big snook shots. One setup was a 34″plus snook with its tail out of the water under the mangrove roots. The fish would not eat.

It was good to see my good friend Brian Peck and his brother Glenn make it down for a day and what a day it was. We broke off three snook and had shots at four snook over 34″. One big snook ate the fly but the fly pulled out.  We ended up with a few snook but the big ones broke us off or the hook   popped out of their big bucket mouths. I really look forward to fishing Brian and Glenn Peck very soon. Thanks to all the others that made  the trip this month.
