  1. Fly Fishing
    New to the forum and I could sift through older posts but figured I’d post as well. Headed down to Everglades for the first time next month and was looking for color suggestions for tying up some Seaducers, Hot Lips, Dedeaux poppers, Kwans and Clousers. Any other types of flies and patters...

    A line in Ray Wylie Hubbard's song Mother Blues goes "And the days that I keep my gratitude higher than my expectations, well, I have really good days." Yesterday was the summer solstice, our longest day of the year and the first day of astronomical summer in the Northern Hemisphere. I was...

  6. General Fishing
    Live bait seems to be a staple of Florida fishing and a world unto its own. The extent of my live bait knowledge ends at bluegill and farm ponds (or throwing the occasional skipjack w/ a stinger hook for stripper and flat heads). What are some of your favorite methods for catching bait? Do you...
  7. General Fishing
    Looking for any information on fishing onshore or wading or kayak fishing on St Martin. My cruise will be there for the day on April 4th. I've tried to contact the only land based guide I found online but can not get a reply. Looking for general information on lures and or locations. I've heard...

  9. Introduce Yourself
    OK that got your attention-I have a fishing company in Alaska but will be buying a Travato in Ocala after the Superbowl. I want to pick up a skiff or flats boat to fish for 3-4 weeks on my way back to Boise ID- along the southern coast. I am trying to stay in a budget under 10K but see a lot...
  10. General Discussion
    I've been lucky enough have a 2013 13' Gheenoe as my primary shallow-water boat for the past 6 years but it's time to upgrade. It's been a reliable guide around Punta Gorda's miles of mangrove-lined canals but I want to venture out further and on longer excursions. It only makes sense that I...
  11. Microskiffs For Sale
    The undeniable skinny water master. After years of fishing with friends and guides, this was my made to order never sell boat. With a 500lb kevlar hull weight, a sharp entry leading to a 4 inch dead rise and a 5 inch draft, this boat goes where others quake, turns on a dime and poles with the...
  12. Introduce Yourself
    Hi All, I head a lab at the University of Florida (Whitney Lab in St. Augustine) and we have started an acoustic tagging project to help conserve local inshore gamefish, beginning with redfish. We are currently doing our tagging from a borrowed boat and with help from local guides and...
  13. Fly Fishing
    Last couple of weeks have seen the massive amount of sargassum on the beaches subside - allowing for some great sight fishing for snook. Biggest of the season (caught by my dad) went just over 42 inches - non spillway, inlet, or beach fish by the way which is crazy. Go to flies are a modified...

  17. Fly Fishing
    Hey y'all, new account but previous user here. I had an account probably 7 or 8 years ago and bought my Mitzi off here but couldn't remember my old login information. Anyways, I've got some questions for y'all. I'll be in Naples in late May for a week. I might be fishing with a buddy on his...
  18. Fly Fishing
    Hello everyone, A friend and I are planning a last second trip down to Flamingo this weekend. We both rarely ever get the chance to fish together since he lives up north, so he's making the long drive south in hopes of catching a few fish and having a good time in the glades. Just wanted to...
  19. Fishing Reports
    Fun day beach fishing up north yesterday, targeting tarpon and snook. This big gal ate a soft plastic shad tail. Water looked good and there was some bait around, including what may be the first schools of mullet. Most of the tarpon were a bit out of range from the beach, but there were some...
  20. Fishing Reports
    Last week on my way to Sanibel Island from NE Florida I stopped for a short break to fish out of Oscar Scherer State Park. Even with reports of red tide in the area I did not see any affects of this plague on South Creek. I got lucky with my timing and the snook bite was excellent for the hour...
