Fishing with John O’Hearn last week

Finally, here’s an account of last week’s four-day trip with John O’Hearn. For the first three days, we were joined by Frankie Marion, who was shooting some video footage of our escapades (in preparation of next year’s planned video venture). He was kind enough to send us some stills of the fishing for this report.…

Ted Margo, Brad Bowman, many creatures

I have yet to upload the large report from my four days with John O’Hearn last week, since I only just got photos from Frankie Marion who was on hand to document the proceedings. In the interim, while it’s pouring rain and blowing 25, here’s an account of my good friend Ted “Teddy Eyes” Margo…

Currently, next week

At the moment I lack a personal report to post here, given the lack of fishing I’ve been doing for the last week. That said, it’s worth mentioning here that the wind has been the primary issue out there and that, while many fish have been about, they aren’t super excited about biting. Monday I…

Fishing with RT last Sunday

Sunday I fished with RT Trosset. Our target was tarpon–specifically, there was hope that we might pick a fight with a large fish on 6# tippet. As it was, we were unable to come tight but once (briefly) to a fish we couldn’t see. There were fish around us, and one even turned and tracked…

Fishing yesterday with Aaron and Adam Tondu

Yesterday I fished with Aaron Snell and Adam Tondu, a friend from Chicago in town to catch his first tarpon. We started early, and in short order Aaron had us on a school of rolling fish. Adam was up first and it didn’t take long for Aaron to have him in position for a number…

Fishing last night

Last night I fished with Aaron Snell. We were joined by Kathryn Vallilee, who was hoping to catch her first large tarpon. While Aaron had found many fish in a few places the night before, we were unable to find the scales we wanted and called it a night early. Tomorrow I’m headed back out…

Fishing yesterday with Aaron Snell

Yesterday I fished with Aaron Snell. As much as I fish with Aaron, we hadn’t spent a day on the water in a few weeks and it was great to be out with him again. We began fishing a spot for laid up fish, and while we didn’t see many we were able to feed…
