A Typical Day on the Water
What to expect from your day in the sun.
The general make up of your
adventure depends largely on you. Just let us know what your particular
A popular option is to start
out doing some fly casting around the mangroves early where you are likely
to encounter snook and redfish.
Then if your casting arm gets a little tired at mid mourning you might
try some speckled trout action on the flats on
light tackle. Then after a break for lunch (provided) and the sun continues
to climb, its back to the mangrove bays for some sight casting to reds.
Or maybe you would like to try your hand at pompano
on the fly.
But what if you're not into
fly fishing? No problem, You can accomplish any of the above with
light tackle using artificials or you might want to employ live bait. Or,
if you have any other ideas, then make out your wish list and let me know
how I can help.
A typical day starts out
around day break and ends at 1 or 2 o’clock. These hours are negotiable
and can vary to fit in with certain tides and client preferences. But then
again, your day in the sun need not be in the sun at all. Many opt for
our night snook trips that usually run from 10:00
through 3:00 or 4:00 in the morning. These times may vary also.
A popular format on the night
trips is to start a couple hours before dark for some instruction in fly
casting when you can still see what your doing and then go to a local restaurant
to grab a bite and relax a little. This is desirable because the snook
often take a couple hours to get into a good feed.
On a typical night anglers
with moderate skills who can routinely cast 20 ft. or better average 5-10
snook an outing averaging 20"-24" with an occasional
screamer thrown in for good measure. But beginners fear not, as this is
also an excellent chance for a novice to catch his first snook.
Refreshments including your choice of soft drinks and bottled water are
I typically arrange your accommodations so that I can pick you up on the hotel boat dock. This makes it very convenient at the end
of the trip when your room and precious sleep are only a few steps away.
You also have beach access out your back door. More info. available on
request. I hope this has been of some help on what to expect and what I
offer on my adventures, but if you have any questions, please ask.
