Default Florida

Got out today with our guide, i blew almost all my chances at my snook. 3 of em just wouldnt eat. One was a big guy and charge the fly but turned around at the last second. Missed a few shots at reds, then made it onto some grass flats for trout and ended up catching a few trout and lots of small jacks. Managed to hook a big trout and have a monster 5-6 foot shark eat him and peeled some line out pretty quickly. It was an awesome day, got another day booked on the 29th. So looking forward to it!

Droppin a line from Florida!

BH: Sounds like a pretty interesting day on the water, getting to fish for mulitple species despite the lack of hooking into the snook or red fish!

Curious as to what constitutes a big trout? I've not fished for them, but have caught some of their relatives. milt.

He hit and came a bit out of the water. Had him on for about 5 seconds, then had the shark come full body out of the water and chomped him. Gonna get more pictures next time out!
