    Live in Crystal Beach, East side of St. Josephs Sound directly behind the pass betweeen Honeymoon and 3 Rooker islands. Boat ramp is a mile from the house but use dirt launch at a park to avoid that madness, Anclote is another option. Reds, Trout, and Tarpon within minutes of launch. Typically work my home area and North, great diverse fishery.

    Been fishing the Southshore of Tampa Bay from the Alafia River south to the sunshine skyway for 14 years. Mainly use artis but will throw the castnet when I have guests aboard. The diversity and quality of our fishery down here never cease to amaze me!

    Hi Cliff ... heading to Englewood June 9 and spend a week on manasota key. First time in the area so don't know much. Will you be there then? Any place you recommend for fly fishing? Looking to get my young one (17) on a babytarpon. The folks on this site have given me lots of options but still have three weeks to go so continuing to plan! Cheers

    I live in burbs of Havana, Fl. Currently fish out of a yak, but we have a 13 whaler that we need to get running and in the water. Fish St Marks to St George Island and local fresh water on the fly.

    Did not know they had suburbs up there in that neck of the woods beautiful part of Florida. My mom lives above Tallahassee in Georgia my wife loves antique shopping up that way.

    Wish I could join in but I am in Island Park, Idaho for the summer fly fishing. Henry's Fork, Madison, Yellowstone. Lucky to have the chance for some of the best salt and fresh water fishing.

    Oh yeah, I have seen you out there. We should do a meet up. Fish some, park on a sand bar and take some pics. Maybe a couple of cold ones.

    Padre, Give me a holler a few weeks before you are out here. September is fantastic-we can do a float on the lower Henry's Fork or over on the Madison.

    I am hoping to get out Friday. I have someone in the hospital so I might have to do a funeral. I'll message you tomorrow. Maybe we could meet up. Are you fishing in the Star Tournament?
     
  19. Hope it all works out for the best. I'll be out there Friday if the wind isn't too bad. I haven't heard anything about the tournament. When/where is it? I won't enter, but would definitely check out the weigh-ins

    The tournament runs all summer. It is a catch and photo tournament. They have great prizes including trucks and boats for catching a tagged redfish. They released like 4 reds in each coastal county in FL. I took 4th in the fly division a couple of years ago and won a nice Engle prize package. It starts Memorial weekend. https://www.ccaflstar.com
