Current Conditions

It’s a nice thing that happens sometimes when the wind has been blowing for a long time and it finally lays down. (Sidenote: I am using lay intentionally. Just as tarpon lay up, wind lays down). Next week in Apalachicola, reports to follow. n

Last two days with John

Yesterday and the day before I fished with John O’Hearn. Yesterday, we were joined by my good friend Dave Dalu. DAY ONE: If you keep up with these reports, you know it has been windy. You also might know that I haven’t fished for about ten days, which has kept complaints about the wind on…

Fishing last week with Joe

After the fishing with Simon and Kathryn, I joined Frankie Marion for a day with Captain Joe Rodriguez. The wind was in full effect (as it has been since), but Joe was unfazed and we went out to give it a shot. We started at 7 AM, and drove an hour to where Joe wanted…
