Looking for a guide in the keys/s. miami area
Any recommendations for a flats guide around the keys/ or South miami?
I will be in Florida Dec. 18-Jan 2.
My girlfriend wants to help me get a charter and guide as a graduation gift.
Her folks live on a boat down there. We've stayed on Islamorada in the past, but are willing to drive some where on the keys or south of miami. Everglades could work also.
Caught my first barracuda and bonefish last summer, but both were pretty small.
Hoping to find migrating tarpon, snook, permit, reds, and some bigger bones.
I will be traveling with a 11wt, 300yd backing setup, and a 7wt with maybe 120yds backing. I have a bunch of flies ranging from shrimp, crazy charlies, etc, to bigger **** punchers and gurgler patterns. Also lots of deceivers and clousers.
An adult tarpon would be a dream, I would be happy hunting many species though.
