Re: St Marks 12/31

Yeah, Beeready, thanks for the report. I fished some good spots thoroughly on the 31st and didn't hook a fish. Had some action way up a creek on Saturday. Constantly changing winter conditions sure do add to the challenge of catching fish in Apalachee Bay. Dense fog Friday and Saturday, Gale force w...

Re: St Marks 10/23

Friday I went out and hit some likely bars and didn't sniff a fish nor see any bait in 4 different spots. This included some thorough wade fishing. Saturday I went way up a creek and saw some bait moving around and got 3 Reds and a short Trout. Didn't see a ton of fish around. Water was a bit off co...

Re: October Fly Tie Night!!

Also, today I'm fishing a small creek today on a ranch that a friend of mine owns. The creek feeds the Beaverhead River and has some surprisingly nice Browns in it (18" is not unusual). Gonna be 72F here and will likely use small wooly buggers and attractor dries to try to entice a big guy to e...

Re: October Fly Tie Night!!

Jay, if it's in the same timeline in November, I'll be there. Coming down 11/2-11/17. PS - post a link if you and Evan do a monthly report. Enjoy listening to the discussion. Also planning on doing the Steelhead Fly for Clouser trade with Gary Droze while I'm down there if he hasn't already complete...

Crud, wish I could make this. Maybe the November Fly Tie night I can be there. Love to hear more about what you end out tying.

Re: ST George Island--places to eat

A lot of good choices, especially the Owl but for me, it's Hole in the Wall in Apalach. Dynamite food with attitude.

Re: Pompano

Congrats on the state, and perhaps world record pompano! I hope you registered it. Pretty cool that pompano are still around this late in the season. Guess we can attribute that to the longer than average cooler temps. Hopefully they will stick around for a few more weeks so I can capture one. That...

Re: Pompano

I caught a 2' Pompano on a bar in Shell Point this year on a White McKittrick Jawbreaker. It's pretty easy to tie flies that are similar to it. Check out Cohen fly tails for a curled, durable tail that provides nice action. The tails on the Jawbreaker are fragile. On another note, I tore it up at th...

Re: Flyfishing - Locally

Good reports. Have a safe trip back. I am going Glacier this summer. Do you have a guide recommendation out of whitefish? Showboat, I'd probably recommend Lary's flyshop in Columbia Falls owned by Hillary Hutcheson who is on Trout TV. She and I have a few mutual friends who think very highly of her...

Re: Flyfishing - Locally

Winding down my time in FLA at what a buddy would call, the exact wrong time, as the fishing is picking up. Unfortunately the weekend weather has been crap for a while so that has curtailed a bit of my fishing. A few weeks ago I caught a large Pompano on a white Jawbreaker fly. I released it as i th...

Re: St Marks NWR - 28 Feb

You fellas did better than I did. Sunday I wadefished a couple oysterbars and got squat. Was bait around and I fished thoroughly. Water is so dirty, that's what I blamed it on. Went out Saturday and poled the Seaark around looking for Redfish. Saw a bunch, mostly when I came up on them and I watched...

Re: Jon boat or Gheenoe for flats

Can anyone recommend what to look for in a used aluminum boat for this area? I'd like to comfortably fish at least two adult men, handle the flats on a nice day, and get into the creeks reasonably skinny. I get that there's nothing that can do it all, but what makes for the best compromise? Sent fr...
