Nothing is more rewarding than a big ole smile on a kids face after catching a fish. Whether a half pound Bluegill or hundred-pound Tarpon, it really doesn’t matter to them. I have been fortunate over the years to take part in days such as these.
For anglers, summertime in Florida can be some of the best fishing of the year — if you can bear the heat and don’t mind dodging storms. Along with all the usual inshore species, Tarpon of all sizes are perhaps one of the most abundant on the inshore flats and the back water estuaries.
Springtime in Florida is not only a great time for Anglers around the state. Second only to my passion of fishing is my love for the Florida “Spring Gobbler” Turkey season. Central and South Florida are unique in that these are the only areas to hunt the sub species of Wild Turkey known as the Osceola.
We are lucky to live in or visit a state where there is usually always some type of fishing no matter the conditions. This past week has presented us with unstable weather which can sometimes call for multiple changes in tactics.
As 2022 comes to a close a can think of no better way to end it than putting a client on a bucket list fish! The water temps have rebounded from the Christmas weekend freeze and the inshore fishing has picked back up. Most inshore areas have cleared up as far as water clarity and fish are once again on the move in the shallows.
The colder weather has finally arrived in Florida. Recent cool downs and this past weekend’s arctic blast are doing their job in cleaning up the algae blooms which have plagued our inland waters for quite […]
Although Florida is well known as a state where we are fortunate enough to be able to fish most of the year, our inland water ways do depend on cooler water temps at some point to complete the cycle. Most of the Indian and Banana Rivers are still fairly bad as far as dirty water either from ongoing algae blooms or from all the runoff occurring during our two recent hurricanes.
With the remaining high-water levels, off-colored water, winds, and latest cool down this past week’s inshore trips were some what of a challenge. Although slowly receding, water levels throughout our lagoons are still at a higher-than-normal level. All the runoff from the recent storm and winds from this latest cool front have the water fairly churned up which presented some difficulty for sight fishing on the flats and mangrove shorelines.
