Tarpon Day 6 = Everglades

Posted 06-25-2011 at 10:48 AM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

In an attempt to right the wrong off to many libations the night before and pulling a no show on day5 our guide offered a run over to the Everglades. Hard to turn that trip down!! We have made this trip a few times over the years and if we had a trailer for Dads boat we would do it more often.

Guide arrived to pick us up very promptly this morning and we were off to Flamingo. We put in on the inside and headed out the channel to Coot Bay. Crossed Coot Bay to Tarpon Creek and into Whitewater...

Tarpon Day 5

Posted 06-23-2011 at 08:54 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

This day seemed doomed from the start. Since it has become so crowded out on the flats near Ocean Reef this year we decided to head out earlier than usual. We decided on the schedule change in order to get on our favorite flat. Over the last 7 yrs of this trip we have figured out the moves of the Tarpon during the tidal changes on this particular flat. Until this year we have been one of only two boats fishing the flats in this area. This year there have been many boats out there. We have been beaten...

Day one on the Water

Posted 06-22-2011 at 07:33 PM by mbphotos54

well first day on real water was a bust, the creek I had planed to fish today was swelling from alot of rain over the last few days, and throw in an average of 15-20mph winds that location was a bust, I did get to cast a bit there and did get in a few rollcasts. I decided to try a small pond here close by, and one side was out of the wind but it was the corner where the grass carp are rolling right now, so more casting practice was had. now that I think about it I dont know what I would have done...

Catch & Release Salmon Fishing;

Posted 06-22-2011 at 05:04 PM by Hardyreels

If you've read other entries here you know we have an annual limit on harvest of king salmon. I'm at 3 and will hold out for either more big ones or a nice male fresh in. I went out very early today and used the same fly that has caught the fish so far this year. I'm very much in the 'if it ain't broke then don't fix it' club and things worked out well. Almost everything that is, I don't know how long it will take for me to learn to check all the settings on my camera before taking pictures. Way...

Tarpon Day 4

Posted 06-20-2011 at 09:14 PM by Davo (Davo's Fly Angling Adventures)

I'd love to tell everyone it was a stellar day, but that was not the case. Headed out at 7:00AM and found the best flats already full of boats. Very disconcerting to say the least so it was time to explore new fishing grounds.

We headed south from Ocean Reef in search of a place to intercept some north bound fish. We ended up staking out 3 good spots. However the cloud cover limited visibility to 30ft or less due to the glare on the water. Even with polarized glass seeing sets of fish...
