  1. Heading to the keys this weekend. Fished it in February but a front had rolled through and had to “settle” for redfish. Renting a skiff around summer land keys and going to fish the bridges. Mostly a fly angler but looking to head back into the flats? Obviously not looking for a spot burn but with the tarpon migration it’s not secret to where the fish are. Anyone ever fish “behind” the summer land key area?

  6. Hey guys, Was down in Marathon at the beginning of the month. Got the lay of the land and a I am planning on heading back for the new moon in mid April. My buddy who doesn't fish has an inflatable SUP and he was telling me how he easily gets it checked in on his flights. It got me thinking about picking up an inflatable SUP and taking it to the keys (or wherever else I can get to) Will be primarily fishing for bones but I wanted to know if anyone else has had any experience with the inflatable SUPS. Any suggestions?
  7. Ok ok. So now that I am mentally preparing for my next trip to the keys I am looking at more options. My buddy has an inflatable SUP and he got me intrigued. I usually don’t like them but I am somewhat young and somewhat in shape so I think I can handle them. I was surprised at how easily he travels with his. Anyone have any experience? How about an inflatable kayak?
  8. REPORT BACK: Cold front last week supposedly shutdown the bonefish and tarpon. I did manage to spot a HUGE bone in a channel off Bahia state Park. Had two shots at it but it was deep and cruisingg pretty quickly. Went out with Kayak guide Randy morrow and managed to successfully sight fish some nice redfish. Fished long key and saw two smaller bones but they were cruising, def not in feeding mode and skittish. Tough to spot fish in such a huge area. Also had a tarpon around 3 feet cruise right at me and right by me. Threw a bonefish pattern at it but he was not interested. Once it warms up I am going to keep my eye on the conditions and head back down. In my opinion there are much more DIY opportunities than somewhere like Amergris Caye, Belize but I can imagine the fish are more pressured. Was impressed with the size of some of these flats.
  9. Hey guys, Heading down to the keys this weekend for a few days. I know it is last second and with this cold front odds are not in my favor but I was seeing if anyone has ever gone after bones on foot in the marathon area. I have done plenty of research but i was just seeing if anyone had any last minute suggestions. I checked off Long Key and Bahia state park. Obviously, bones and tarpon would be great but anything to put a bend in my rod would be appreciated. Thanks for the info in advance. SMC
  10. Hey guys, Itching to get out of the cold. Was thinking about heading to the Bahamas for a DIY bonefish trip. (Would be willing to get a guide a few days) I was thinking January even thought I know the weather can be hit or miss. I have read great thing on Eleuthera. Any advice or reports would be greatly appreciated. Thanks SmC
  11. Hey marcel, do you usually have any tarpon this time of year? Fly rod?
  12. Thanksgiving blitz. Around 50 landed on the fly.
  13. Hey guys, Heading to Ireland the second week of october for two weeks. I would love to get some fish on the fly while I am over there. Will be traveling all over. If anyone has fished over there or has any knowledge I would appreciate any advice. Thanks!! SMC22
  14. Hey guys, Headed to Ambergris Caye for 10 days at the beginning of March. Going to be staying on NE side of the island. Have a guide for a few days down south, but will be DIY for the rest of the trip. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. SMC22
