Fishing after work yesterday

Last night after work, I was meeting with Jeff Paddock from Seaguar and Eagle Claw. Near his hotel, we found some off color water, and in it a host of small tarpon, snook, and jacks. I quickly grabbed a rod, and from the seawall caught a small tarpon. After getting in the water, I caught…

Re tooled fishing schedule

Given the beautiful weather, an upcoming trip to the northeast (where, I’m told, there are no tarpon) and a lot of left over 6 pound class tippets from an overzealous tying session last week, Joe and I hatched a plan to spend a few days early next week in pursuit of the 6. It looks…

Fishing on Monday with Joe

Monday was another day for the 6, and while the weather was marginal at best Joe and I decided to go. We left Islamorada at about 7:15, and in high water made it to the glades in just under 45 minutes. Immediately, it was apparent that the only way for us to see a fish…

Fishing with John on Monday

Monday I was invited by Ted Margo to fish with him and Captain John O’Hearn. Our plan was to catch bonefish, and John took us to a flat 20 minutes from the ramp and in short order Ted was fishing. It didn’t take long for a school of bonefish to show up, and even less…

Fishing the last three days

The last three days I fished–first with my mother (Vicky) and Captain Drew Delashmit, then with Aaron for two days. Yesterday was the Superfly tournament. Day One: Vicky and I met Drew at a civilized 8:00, and we immediately went to look for bonefish. I hadn’t fished for nearly two weeks, and as such was…
