Its spring anf just yesterday I was out fishing with my longtime fishing client James who comes on a yearly trip from the UK, we have been fishing over 23years and I can honestly say we have caught so many great fish and had so many great memories together. We started out the week fly fishing for Tarpon in the backcountry and ended the week looking for the early migration of tarpon and were lucky enough to see the first ocean tarpon of the season yesterday afternoon. I wish I had a photo to share but we were too busy fishing! Check back for photos soon its spring and the silver kings are here!!!
Here is a longtime fishing buddy with his first Mackerel on Fly, we have been fishing together most of his life and he just has caught the fly fishing bug. Its great to see young anglers pick up fly fishing!
Here is a photo of the Hillbilly Deluxe a good friends 39 Contender headed down island as the sun was coming up.....
I had the chance to go fishing on the new GTB demo boat a beautiful 39ft Contender Fish Around which is a center console with a cabin. I need to buy a lottery ticket because I WANT ONE!!!! If you want one give Gus at GTB a call www.gustoybox.com
The cold snap hit the Florida Keys this morning and we had to cancel our trip due to an all day rainstorm and winds up to 25mph. We are going to get back out there tomorrow so check back later in the week for a fishing report... gp
Just finished up a few fun days of fishing with Christy & Terry Kirk who are great friends and longtime clients. We caught lots of fish and had lots of laughs, below are a few photos from our fun. If you can get away from the shopping malls this month give me a call and lets get out on the water...
I got a call from an old friend and client who wanted to surprise her son with a fishing charter for his 17th birthday, we booked the trip and he brought along his best friend for a fun day out on the water. Hunter & James started the day throwing the new for some pilchards and then we ran to the Everglades for a Snook & Redfish trip. Happy Birthday Hunter it was great to spend the day with you guys.
Yesterday I took out 3 generations out for their first trip to the Florida Keys and they had a blast. We caught some fish, fed the Tarpon at Robbie's and had a great day on the water, if this sounds good to you watch this short video and lets book a trip for your family!
Its been way too long sense I have taken the time to write a fishing report for this blog, but I can tell you I have learned more about a chain saw then I ever wanted to know. The Hurricane was over a month ago and the island is getting back to normal, most of our restaurants are open and the resorts are working hard to rebuild or opening up. If you can get away from life and come down contact me at 305-393-3327 or firstname.lastname@example.org and I will provide you with a list of places to stay. I have been getting out on the water a bit lately and I can tell you the fishing has been amazing just the other day we had a 3 boat trip into the backcountry and we all caught Snook & Tarpon. Below are a few photos from the trip, ill be at the Ft. Lauderdale boat show with CONTENDER so if your in the area come by and say hello.
