|Moron_Saxatilis||I booked Ben Iannotta based on referrals on the web including Juro. Plus he e-mailed back with some good info and sounds like a good guy... ie) won't get too mad if I hook him in the head.|

No problem. I'm assuming that your wife to be also likes fishing - or is that an issue? Hah!
I'll post any info I have when I get back.
Thanks again, everyone for the advice.

|Moron_Saxatilis||Let us know how you make out... I am also going to the Keys early Sept. on my (gulp) honeymoon. Will be looking for a guide for a day. Sept. 3rd.|

Thanks guys. I've booked Ben (owing to the recommendations) for May 31st. As this may well be a once off (hiring a guide, that is), I'll be sure to bring a camera.
I'll post photos and notes on the trip when I get back. Even if I don't land anything, I'm sure it'll be a great experience.

I'd call Ben Ianotta for a resident flats guy who is dialed in to what's happening. Besides, his Hewes flats boat is a classic. He was approached by an older gentleman one day while in his boat. The man seemed to know quite a bit about the boat. Well it turned out he should - it was Mr.Hewes!
You're lucky to be going to fish the keys, best of luck fighting the silver king!

You may want to call Paul Tejera. 305-852-7888. Been down there a looooonng time.

Capt. Ben Iannotta is a really great guy and will do everything he can to get you on fish. I fished with him last year and had a great time. Cannot wait to go back....
He is also a friend of the forum which is another plus.

Know a tarpon guide?
Can anyone recommend a reputable tarpon guide for the Keys area? I've heard some horror stories and want to avoid same.
