It’s been an awesome spring, busiest since 07′. Many apologies to those who we weren’t able to return calls to as the fishing was “off the hook” and so was the phone. Every guide I know was fishing everyday and many times two trips a day.

On to the report..


Fish like snook, redfish, seatrout, and more were eating live and dead bait with ease and some really nice fish were brought aboard. The bait has been easy to find and so have the fish with the exception of redfish. They seemed to be here one day, gone the next. As always if redfish isn’t happening we’re on to bigger and better things. Speaking of bigger, the sharks came in in force this year. We’ve jumped spinners on trout rods, sight casted sharks, even made a blind cast with a hunk of mackerel that was eaten and pulling line before I even engaged the reel. This should continue all the way until beginning of winter if you know where to look.

Tarpon time is now. Bridges, bays, passes, beaches, they all have them. I tend to look for the area that has the least amount of boat traffic so we don’t have to deal with the hassle of “those who don’t know, or those who simply don’t care”. Give everybody a little space, there’s plenty of fish for everyone to go find there own school.

If you are looking to fish this summer please don’t delay in booking your trip. Good days/tides fill up fast. Tight lines!
