Mike caught his first tarpon on fly!!!
My apologies for slacking in keeping my fishing reports current.. The weather and the fishing has been good... I have been on the water every day since some time in Jan...except for 3 days when we had a cold front in Feb.... It has been so good, I have to go too, on my days off.
I do try to up date the Twitter page daily with a report and pic..
With that said......
Rob releasing a tarpon....
We are on the front edge of the tarpon migration.. Rob fed 4 tarpon KG toad flies yesterday.. Boated 1... jumped 2 and had two more eats... One tarpon smashed the fly on the surface.. Water temps are in the low 80s and as long as the weather is good the tarpon fishing will get better and better as the season rolls on.. Today was tough.. cloudy and windy... but we did find some tarpon..
Ben with his first permit on fly!!
Permit fishing has been good too, but will start to taper off late April as most of the permit head off shore to spawn.. This photo was sent to me from Capt. Kevin Guerin... Kevin and Ben both had the day off, fished together and both got a permit on fly.. Kevin and Ben both guide on the Missouri River in Craig Mt. late spring though fall..
Kevin got this cuda today...
Been mixing in some cuda fishing with the tarpon fishing... Water temps are warm and cudas are moving a long way to smash tube lure. It is a blast to see a cuda streak 30 foot to hit a tube lure..
Amy toasts the end of the day and vacation with a celebration shot... She also fed two tarpon that day..
Julie celebrating, hooking up a 6 foot tarpon with Ben..
May be you should come down and celebrate too.. I still have some days open and would love to pole you into some big fish..
Currently I am open
Lets go fishing!!
