Tailing Redfish can be found this time of year!

The 2016 Fly Fishing Season is officially underway and the last month has been fantastic and should continue if our weather patterns hold. Give me a call ASAP to book your next saltwater guided fly fishing trip. Don’t let February pass us by without going fishing! We will dodge the cold fronts and the fishing can be exceptional this time of year! Schooling fish and tailing fish can be found and these fish are hungry and willing to eat!

Good fun on the fly!

Back in January I spent a week, or maybe it was two, chasing some trophy trout that were quite the size of my leg! I don’t particularly focus on these fish but this year I found so many giant trout in one general area that I continued to target them for a bit. It was a tough bite and was only able to get a handful of shots over the course of the week and finally I didn’t catch one of those tree trunks.

Those chances are not entirely past either though as the possibility of finding more trout in the trophy class should last into March!

peanuts catch big fish!

In the meantime we continued to clean up on redfish in less than a foot of water and the sight casting opportunities just kept coming. Then the schools of redfish and black drum came.

They are schooling up thick and while they were picky I  did manage to find out what they can not resist!
