Wintertime fishing finally seems to be here! Snook fishing has been good both on fly and light tackle, and the redfish are starting to show up in their wintertime spots. There is nothing better than sight fishing a big snook or an aggressive redfish.

It has been way too long since I updated the blog, so I will try and post more frequently before springtime fishing begins. Buddy, John, and I had a wonderful trip together. It’s great when you laugh so hard your sides hurt. On day 4, we decided to finally take a pic of a few fish to document they actually did catch fish. We ended up catching a pile over the four days, and what better people to do that with.

I look forward to the springtime every year because of the friends and fish that migrate to this area every year. Lots of good laughs and a bunch of good fish. I posted the after photo of Jon Robbins so you won’t forget what that tarpon did to you. Thanks Guys!

​One of the best parts about being a guide is the friendships you form over the years. You forget the “Client /Guide” titles and become old friends just cutting up on the water.  I have had a blast the last few weeks with new and old faces alike. Here’s to you good friends. Thanks for letting me enjoy it, hopefully as much as you do.

Still have quite a bit of water in the backcountry for those fish to spread out in, but we have had some great “9th inning” fish on the bow the last few weeks. Great job guys!

October was all over the place in terms of fishing. Fish seemed to be in transition the second half of the month. Had a few slow days, but also has some of the best days all year. With this last cold snap back country fishing has really picked up!

We have had some wonderful days of fly fishing this month. Plug and light tackle fishing has been exceptional.

Almost finished up with my fishing season here in the panhandle of Florida. Have had a great summer up here with great weather and happy fish. Looking forward to getting back home, down to the Everglades. Here are a couple of shots from this summer and one shot of David’s fish from the Everglades that I promised to post.

So my camera went for a swim and is currently not working. Hopefully I will have a new body here in a few weeks. Here are some fun shots from the last couple of fly fishing trips in the Everglades!

As with much of the country, South Florida has had a good number of cold fronts in the last month or so.  With this weather we have had some good days and tough days as well. Here are a tarpon pics to get everyone excited about warmer weather!

The fishing continues to be good down in Chokoloskee, Florida. Redfish and snook are active with the recent warm weather. Above are a few pics of some backcountry snook we found while exploring new water.

Fly fishing in the Everglades continues to be excellent. Ryan (bottom shot) sight fishes his first redfish! He followed it up with another half dozen. Great job Ryan!

I am seeing an increase in size of the slot fish on the boat. A larger number of the reds we are catching are 24 to 28 inches. Don’t remember that in pervious winters, but I will take it!

This last week has been excellent fishing with a front that had stalled out. Catching some really nice snook and a bunch of redfish.  Chris even sight fished a nice Jewfish on fly.

Justin and I had a wonderful day sticking it to the ol’ snook in the Everglades. I keep forgetting my SLR so here are a few picks from my camera phone.

We are definitely in a cooler season here in the everglades. The nights have been getting down into the lower 70’s and the days are in the mid 80’s. Redfish have been grouping up in good numbers and the snook seem to be feeding better midday. Peter and I had a great time working a large group of backing reds a few days ago. Also have had a good time chasing up new creeks.

Because of the government shutdown Everglades National Park has been closed to fishing. The good news is we can drive through the park to fish around it and have been finding some good fish. We are all bummed out over the closure, but making the best of it and looking forward to the reopening. Here are a few from the last 2 weeks.

Just finished up 3 days in the Everglades with Ol’ Boone and his Slim Jims. As with anywhere you fish, you are going to see all types of fishing conditions, good and bad. Boone and I were fortunate enough to hit it right. Good company, good weather, and good fishing.

Had an enjoyable few days sticking some great fish!

Harry pulled down one of his prototype Legend skiffs and I had the pleasure of fishing in it.  We had a wonderful day exploring around new places and found fish just about everywhere we looked. Found some snook on poppers, jumped a good number of big tarpon and a few nice redfish.  Harry’s boats are some of the nicest boats to pole I have ever pushed. Thanks for a nice day, Harry!
