The redfish are on the move with schools of 100’s of fish on the flats if you take the time to look for them. We spent 6 hours looking for these schools and found 6 or 7 groups of tailing and boiling redfish with big snook and jacks on the edges of the schools.  Very cool stuff!! This should last a few more weeks?


New Hells Bay for the 2013-2014 season

New skiff will make a great boat for everyone to enjoy.  Comfortable and stylish as well as a great tool for fishing was what I had in mind when I had this boat built. This Hells Bay Whipray is a great riding boat and also runs and poles shallow.  Come on down and fish in the finest flats boat made period!!!

Texas in August 2013;

Wonderful double on fly with my good friends Ty and Mike in Rockport

Wonderful double on fly with my good friends Ty and Eric in Rockport Texas

Having a great time in Rockport Texas this month.  A place I grew up fishing as  a kid.  Lots of redfish tailing along with some monster jacks this time of year. Next year I may stay until the middle of September and guide some of my best clients to some of this great fishing. Let me know if you want to fish. August is almost booked for next year and September is getting full.  The best time to be here is August thru September. The winds are not so bad and lots of fish around.   Headed back to the Everglades in a week or so to pickup my new boat and get ready for the Redsnook tournament and looking forward to some great snook and baby tarpon fishing.  Special thanks to all my friends on the Texas Coast this year. Loads of fun!! See you next year same time!!

May and June Tarpon fishing 2013;

sunset morningDr. Peter MilletDr. Peter Millet from Val Colorado jumped 8 tarpon and landed two or three in a few days with me in  late May and early June. Tarpon were traveling over the sand moving north and sight fishing small groups of fish was the ticket until the clouds and wind moved us to a new scenario.  All on fly.

April tarpon fishing 2013;

Steve's tarpon fight

Steve Pensinger fighting his 160lb Tarpon for 2 hours and 20 minutes

April is off and running and tarpon are everywhere.  Steve Pensinger landed two in as many days this week and had a epic battle that lasted 2 hours and 20 minutes. We landed the fish and estimated it to be around a  160 class tarpon. Frantic at the boat but we got the hook out of her and she kicked off without a good photo. Hooking lots of tarpon but these guys are strong and hard to land. They seem to have lots of energy this year. Wow !!!

Steve Liesman with his biggest snook ever on fly…

March has been good for snook and lots of trout.  No tarpon yet but Steve Liesman of CNBC’s squak box, sight fished this 34″ snook in 6″ of water.  He got it done after many had tried but failed this month.

Trout and redfish in March 2013;

Nice trout and redfish on topwaters in Pine Island Sound. Just finished a few days with Mike and caught lots of trout  and a few redfish. We also hooked some nice snook that broke us off or the hooks pulled.  Enjoyed having Mike on the boat and look forward to helping him threw his retirement.HAHa!!!
