sorry, i forgot to mention another guide that i fished with out of matlache. greg bowdich. his business is called barfly. he is a very good guide and works quite hard. the area is quite unique in that it is a bit of old florida-quiet and out of the way. seems like the boom of the past 30 years missed this place. it really is nice and quite interesting. the area has tons tons of flats. when i went, we fished for reds and snook, but i understand that the tarpon are plentiful.
