Fishing Reports

Hello Backing

DSC_0124.JPG The last couple of weeks the Beach has been a fun place to be with a fly rod. The annual run of false Albies or Bonito's has been fantastic this year! I encountered the fist ones in September but the last weeks they seems to have split up in smaller groups chasing minnow almost up on the dry sand.

Spring Steelhead Minnesota Style

030.JPGI know most of my flyfishing friends in Florida scratch there head and wonder how I could like fishing steelhead in Northern Mn. under conditions I just endured.  I had missed the previous 2 steelhead seasons and I just had the need to get back to my roots.  Last year I tried to get back but mother nature decided to have a early spring and by the time I was scheduled to be on the rivers the run off was over and it was a very dry spring which meant not enough water in the rivers.

Mar-April Fishing Report

closeup.jpg The season has arrived in full swing as we seen the water temps in the mid 60s in March climb to 72-73 degrees in April. The Cobia arrived with the Spanish Mackerel right behind them. Fishing for cobia a few weeks ago i seen multiple wads of baitfish with small Spanish busting them on top and birds working on top. Fishing east we spotted a cobia hovering around a wreck, to far to make a cast with my flyrod and the cobe went down. My friend tossed a live eel and we caught a nice cobia about 25lbs. As we cruised the beach, we seen a triple tail about 10-20 feet from the boat just drifting along the current trying hard not to draw any attention to himself afraid he could be bait for a larger species cruising the beach looking for an easy meal.

Outing to Galt's Pond

trout001.JPG January 17 it was time for the first 2011 Outing for Panhandle Flyfishers. The weather forecast was not promising but who cares when the company is good and fishing is on the agenda! It has almost become a tradition to visit Galt's Pond in Tallahassee in January. It's also a tradition that it needs to rain the hole day! Never the less we had a great day. The fishing was tough despite a lot of activity in the water! The fish was feeding most of the day but unfortunately not feeding among our feather creations!

100_1758.jpgMonday morning 13 December found myself, Dennis Curley and Bill Streitz, Torben Dam and Gary Albaugh packed in my truck with all our fly fishing gear headed to Louisiana for a two day fishing adventure in the marshes.  As usual the best laid plans for perfect weather were dashed by Mother Nature and other than freezing cold (29 degrees and 15 MPH winds) we were ready to fish.
