Early Season Cold Spell

Most saltwater anglers scratch their heads when the cold front comes through and everything that was happening starts to stop, thats what I pride myself in; finding my clients quality fishing opportunities in even the worst of fronts. Snook, Tarpon and Bass are very predictable in The Everglades. Thats why you hire me as your Everglades fly fishing guide, I stay on the water! I have seen this year after year and the fishing heats up once the fish are comfortable with the cooler water temperatures, they are not going anywhere, not migrating or spawning yet so they are easily located. Ive had explosive tarpon fishing for triple digit tarpon fly fishing the Everglades and Naples area when the water temps drop and they do not “show” techniques and areas are key and then after we get our tarpon on the fly out of the way we go after some trophy snook and I love getting fooled by a largemouth bass in snook country, thats why I love being a Everglades fly fishing guide, we just go fish untouched water and we never know what we are going to catch; Bass, snook, and the mighty tarpon are of course my main targets but being secluded in a park the size of the everglades and getting the opportunities to guide great clients out of Marco Island and Naples is why I’ll never really work a day in my life, its way too much fun to call it work.

Lets get after it! I will be following the migration I still have June dates available if you are looking for a Boca Grande tarpon fly fishing guide

Early Migration

Looking for a Boca Grande fly fishing guide? Its going to be an early migration this year which is great news for The Everglades and Boca Grande. Migratory tarpon are thick in the everglades currently and going to get better and better, May and June with be great for a fly fishing trip in the Everglades or Boca Grande. I have these fish eating larger patterns and plugs currently and will size down as we move to the outside for the real migration. I have a lot of great dates available for a Tarpon fly fishing charter in Boca Grande. Fly fishing Naples area will be productive throughout southwest florida until July, book your trip early as it is filling up!

 

 

Everglades Tarpon Season

These next two months I migrate toward these giants, I am in full on Tarpon mode at this point with still fishing for snook when the opportunities arise. I pick up at Chokoloskee Island and have lodging options available for traveling guest. The Everglades in March and April are worth planning a trip around, I still have a day or two available each month along with good May and June dates to chase these magical fish. Tarpon deserve all the credit, best fish that swims in any water know to man and readily eats flies and plugs with some serious acrobatic maneuvers. I love them when they so peacefully roll and gulp air then once hooked they turn into the most aggressive animal Ive ver seen. We have been getting them good on multiple trips, the fish of a lifetime! Give me a call for Boca Grande fly fishing for tarpon or Everglades fly fishing for tarpon.
