Keys Tarpon Guide

Bobby Jones, out of Islamorada is ALWAYS on fish (tarpon that is) and, consequently, is tough to get. Give him a call and you WILL be throwing to fish.

DIY is no big deal

DIY fishing in the glades is no big deal. I've been fishing down there a couple of times a year for close to 20 years. It's not much different than fishing in other parts of FL. Yes, the glades can...

Trolling Motors...

Hey Sean,

I've fought many big fish off the bow and a trolling motor isn't that much of a hindrance. If it's in the way while I'm playing a fish I just lift out of the water.

As far as space...

Trolling Motors

My previous boat had a trolling motor on it and it was a Motor Guide. Also, I couldn't fish without one. If I were you and you are serious about fishing I would definitely make the investment. As...

Since you will have local knowledge from you dad and brother the only advice I can offer would be to walk the beach at first light for snook swimming in the surf. Depending on their mood, throw...

Snook

Having caught many I would say they are a largemouth bass on steroids. Hook a big fish around mangroves and you will be luck if you can turn him. In open water or current a big fish will have a...
