Hey Guys,

I am trying to get into saltwater fly fishing for trout and reds. I am looking for thoughts on rods, reels, line, flies, and anything else I need to get started. I don't want to break the bank for everything.

I was given a reel, but have no idea if it is any good. It is a Hobbs Creek Fly Reel (HC III Reel). Don't know anything about the line on it, other than it was....  Read More

  • Jim Schon with a nice yellowfin
  • Big ole school snapper
  • They put my chicken dolphin in the mouth of the tuna!
To make a long story short it will be the highlight of my summer and something my lackluster memory won't forget!

Now the long story. It started about 5 years ago. Me and a few rabble rousers from work planned a trip to go Tuna fishing. One or two of them dropped out and the plan was killed. Hey with prices like they are for a trip like this I couldn’t afford to eat the extra cost. ....  Read More

The Rip has been beautiful the last two weeks; it was approximately 30-50 miles depending on direction. The first week we hammered 125 dolphins with some large bulls, most fish were caught on cut bait, we cast netted live mullet beforehand and it seemed to produce the big bulls. The second weekend was the same story, had a crew from work and it was their first experience to see a rip. The crew....  Read More

This was one trip that started off knowing we had to hit the weed line to produce fish. We fished the past few weeks before hitting the Rip 30 – 50 miles out, automatically smoking the dolphin. This particular weekend was our vacation so I had friends that never seen blue water and it would be tough to land the finicky mangroves. Friday morning we loaded up and I was unsure of the RIP location,....  Read More

Hello folks. Would like some advice on navigating offshore from either Delta Marina or Joshua's Marina. Would be fishing out of a 24ft center console.

Which marina would you use and what is the best route to get offshore. From google maps it seems almost a straight shot to the gulf but I am not sure about shallow water or obstructions or sandbars or whatnot. Does not seem to have a....  Read More

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA/NMFS) has had its funding of Amendment 40 AKA Sector Separation cut off in fiscal 2016 probably (appropriations bill not law). Amendment 40 is the amendment that takes half of the recreational red snapper allocation and reserves it for use only on charter boats.

What it means: Right now the red snapper season is again closed in....  Read More

  • Double 100lb trouble
  • Gotta love 54lb willy the Warsaw!
  • No more room at 11am! Done
This past week has been excellent!! Every rig I have tried to fish has produced fish in good numbers! Tuna are very plentiful, and so are the big mahi's! Not to mention the rip lately looks as if Guy Harvey painted it! Red snappers are close to 20lb limits, mangroves are huge and are usually no problem limits! Along with some delicious groupers, and any other reef species! Lately it has been....  Read More
