Baby Tarpon, Snook, and Reds

Hey !

Things are starting to fall into swing here in South Florida, lets hope we are done with the cold fronts and NORTH WIND ! I have been fishing out of E-city and in the Everglades National Park and we are catching Snook and Baby Tarpon in the backcountry. We have schools of Reds on the outside and a the Big Tarpon should starty to move through the Everglades in the next month.

Very nice!

I'll be fishing later [early May] out of Englewood Beach. Hope to see some reds and snook there. Would love to fish the Everglades one of these years.

Cheers,

Eric

Englewood Beach

Hey Eric

I live in Englewood just south of Englewood Beach. May is a great time and you will have lots of Snook on the beach and if you rent a kayak and paddle into Lemmon Bay from Stump Pass State Park, then get out and wade the edges you will have loads of Reds.

Thanks for the info. Even better, my friend has a flats boat, so we should be able to get into Lemon Bay with style. I've got my spoon flies packed already for those reds, and I'm drooling over the prospect of hooking snook in the Gulf surf. Last year it was way too windy and roily for good fishing and we had dismal luck.

Cheers,

-- Eric

spoon flies

while I have heard that spoon flies work great on reds in other places, I have had no success with them here. I did notice some sick flies tied by David Skok on the bears den web site that are more inline with what people are using these days around here...

Dave Skok - Craft Fur Mantis Shrimp

Dave Skok - Drum Bug

Again, many thanks. I'll tie Skok patterns up.

I've only caught a few reds fishing off Captiva and those were on spoon flies. Have a lot of respect for those fish and hope to catch at least several more this spring.

Cheers,

Eric
