If you’re a fly fishing fanatic like me, this is heaven on earth. Where else can you throw at Tarpon, Snook and Redfish all in the same day and actually have them eat. These fish are not as pressured as some other areas and they love to eat your fly. Bring your own equipment if you would like but if you don’t want to travel with your rods, I use Hardy Fly Rods and Ross Fly Reels with Scientific Angler Fly Lines. We’ll do what you like.
Plug or Jig Fishing:
same as above, only with a spinning or baitcaster. I use Waterloo and Falcon rods and Shimano and Daiwa reels with Power Pro Braided line. We will throw anything from topwaters to soft plastic jerk baits. This is a lot like bass fishing except that these fish would eat a bass for dinner and still be hungry.
Be sure to take some time before your trip and practice a little. This is tight quarter, target fishing, the more accurate you are with your casting, the better time you’ll have, I promise.
This is the premiere fish in Florida. The prime time to come and fish for these magnificent creatures (50-150 lbs) is March through June although Tarpon of all sizes can be here year round.
This is our year round go to fish. We can catch Snook everyday of the year but the summer time is the best time to find large numbers of fish on the beachfront and larger females congregated around the passes. Snook can always be found cruising the flats, some small and some large but they are all great regardless of size. And these fish eat, some takes will actually scare you!
Hard fighting and always hungry, these shallow water fish are brutes. Whether tailing or cruising with their back out of the water, these fish are awesome. The best time to fish for Redfish is in the Fall or Winter but they are here year round.
