Back from NC and ready to for some saltwater action

November 15, 2017 by

I arrived back in Sarasota mid October but it was slow going getting back on the water. On top of many days of clean up from hurricane Irma we moved into a new house plus I returned to a bad high pressure fuel pump on the boat. Once I set my ego aside and hired a service to remove the large downed trees and took boat to the shop after multiple attempts to repair myself, I finally got back on the water.

February 2017 Fishing Report

March 01, 2017 by

I have a very good client who fly fishes with me in North Carolina in the summer, and he’ll be staying on Sanibel Island in March, when we’ll fish for several days. Even though I have fished that area many times, it’s a little further south than my normal fishing grounds of Gasparilla and N. Pine Island Sound.

January 2017 Fishing Report

February 01, 2017 by

I spent the first two weeks of January in Cashiers, N.C.  We had a project completed at our cottage so we took a trip up to inspect the work. The day after we arrived, I fished the Chattooga River in South Carolina. There was a decent blue wing olive hatch coming off a long with some small stone files on the edge.

December 2016 Fishing Report

January 01, 2017 by

I started the month with a little R&R and Pre-Fishing.  My wife and I rented a small cottage on Little Captiva Island, which is in East Pine Island Sound between Boca Grande and Sanibel Island.  I have a client who is staying on Sanibel this year instead of his usual location of Boca Grande , and even though I’ve fished this area before, it’s a little farther south than my regular grounds of Charlotte Harbor and North Pine Island.

November 2016 Fishing Report

December 01, 2016 by

Fall is my favorite time of the year to fish in southwest Florida, and November didn’t let me down.  The redfish bite was excellent in Charlotte Harbor.  Anglers enjoyed catching good numbers on D.O.A. Cal Shad Tails and Zoom Super Fluke.  Snook was the name of the game - they were feeding strong as they moved off the beaches onto the flats and gorging themselves to prepare for winter.
