River View Guest House near the Missouri River
I am back from my vacation in Montana. Montana was beautiful! Unfortunately there are no tarpon, permit or bonefish in the rivers.
Florida Keys back country on a flat calm morning: Let the hunt begin!
Weather here in the islands has been warm. Not bad if you are out on the water. Early morning starts have been productive, especially on flat calm days..,. Take your pick, rolling baby tarpon or tailing permit and bonefish. By mid afternoon the water temperatures are nearing 90 degrees, which makes it tougher to find bonefish or permit in shallow water. Juvenile tarpon thrive in the warmer temperatures and are eager to eat a well placed surface fly or plug.
Summer and fall is the best time to target bonefish in the lower Florida Keys...
Baby tarpon are lots of fun!
Good number of permit on the flats this time of year as well....
Lobster season is now open in the Florida Keys
