Its a time of year that is a lot of fun to cast a fly rod in beautiful Boca Grande. Lots of Snook and Redfish cruising the edges on higher stages of the tide and very willing to take a fly in a larger radius. Sight casting a laid up snook with a fly is one of the greatest experiences in fishing, they are so aggressive and so visual. They are also eating top water plugs at low light conditions. Steve hooked two Tarpon over 100#’s on larger top water outfits the other day. These tarpon in the backcountry are there to eat, just have to know where they are 🙂 So I look forward to fishing with you if already booked and if not still have a few April and May slots available. New fishing report video coming soon 🙂
See you in Paradise

Tom Brokaw caught some nice snook, along with countless others!
Well Water temperatures are up and so is the fish activity! Everything is happening along with some good shots at early season Tarpon. I have been mainly concentrating on Sight casting Snook along with the occasional Redfish. Snook “season” is open which is unfortunate for our resource, but the fish are sure fired up and aggressive to eat a fly put anywhere in there sight. We have been seeing some big fish on high to Falling Tide with alot of 20-30 inchers in bewteen. It takes a bit of practice to see these “laid up” fish, but once you do its easy to connect with sight casting a fish. There is no greater way to catch a fish in my opinion; to see that fish and deliver a fly to him, you twitch it and see how he reacts and then fool him with some fibers and feathers tied onto a hook. It really is the pinnacle of any anglers career. As always I enjoy throwing some top water plugs at first and last light, magic hour time to check the drags and knots that 40 inch club on artificial is waiting in the back country this time of year. I look forward to fish with you.
