    Took a local guide for a boat ride this morning to see a few tarpon free jumps. (may have been the same fish)

    Caught a lady fish that got off at the boat.

    Sorry no pic.

    Got a nice 26" red on topwater Saturday. No pics because I was supposed to be mowing the grass while the wife was out of town. I'd rather be caught at a strip club than get caught fishing without her.

    Got my first fish on my Tailwater Outfitters Toccoa, a little peacock bass on a tan/white Clouser. I think these are my new favorite fish. I've caught a good bunch on live baits and graduated to flies.

    IMG_0734.JPG Love the colors of these fish, the blues on the edges of the pecs is really neat.

    @Forcefed that's a beautiful fish! It's tough to take a picture that does it justice -- the silver is kind of iridescent, the blues and the green/olive on their back is just gorgeous. That's a great shot too.

    Is that a Florida fish?

    Yes the colors are tough to capture in a photo. But wow are they eye popping in person. That is a Hawaii bone, along with rhe ones of the previous page I posted.

    Another first for me last night... picked up my first few snook on fly. I got them on the white/pearl cactus minnows I tied a few months back. My casting is finally getting back to respectable, too. As an added bonus, my black lab Merlin came along for the trip and was really well behaved!

    Mom is visiting from Pennsylvania so I figured she should catch a peacock bass. I've been catching fish with her for over 30 years and it never gets old.

    Lets get this thread going again with some fish pics. Haven't been able to get out due to shoulder surgery 4 weeks ago. Son stopped by and said shouldn't you run the boat? Yes we should lets go! Loaded up a couple rods and on to the Banana river we went. Definitely still some clear water out there but the brown patches are showing more and more, water temps were 85-87, Winds NNE, Lots of bait in the water. Hit a couple areas where fun size tarpon frequent and went 1 for 6 on spin and artificials. Came across a school of Black drum and picked one off too. 20170810_112257.jpg

    9CBB6452-068C-45C8-80B9-F4992DD33DE4.JPG Caught this red on fly in about 5" of water. When he got hooked he attempted to run out the creek which was blocked by the boat. My buddy was turning the boat to try to avoid line breaking while the red swam underneath. Saw a red swim out the other side of boat and my line was still under the boat stuck. I thought I lost him at that point because my line wasn't moving, it was just stuck on the bottom. Pulled harder to get it unsnagged and the red was still on there. He got burried in the mud underneath the boat and the red that swam on the other side was just another red that got spooked. Crazy fight.

    Some Banana river action. Started out the day with the mission of Tarpon on fly. Had a good friend on the front of the boat using the fly rod. Tarpon have been up on the flats for a bit now. All fish about the size in the pic with a few bigger ones in there. We probably went like 1 for 8 for the day. Tarpon where on micro bait like a 1/4" in length. So fly had to be small. Also pulled a Red on spinning gear and artificial. Water temps 85-89, wind SSW then turned SSE. Unfortunately water quality is starting to diminish.

    IMG_2103.JPG IMG_2105.JPG Got out there yesterday morning before the sun came up to find some snook and reds. As soon as I launched it started raining..... There was some lightning to the south but it was far enough away to keep me out there. Unfortunately I had to abort my original plan but as soon as the sun came up it showed signs of clearing. Decided to stay close to home in case the storms came back and was lucky enough to catch 3 reds and 4 snook. I had to call it quits early to go mow the lawn but I was happy to get a few hours out there. Can't wait to get back out there next week.
