“I recently had Rand Holstead down from Houston Texas for a day of permit and bonefishing. The day started early with the forecast calling for light winds. We started at 6:00 am and after a 30 minute ride we reached our first spot on the oceanside just as the sun was rising. The tide was at the very last part of the fall, we started to push onto the flat and off in the distance you could see the signs of tailing bonefish.

After about 5 shots we hooked up to a nice fish racing out 100 yards or more. Rand lead the fish into the net, we had a nice 8lb bonefish. With the tide now rising we needed to make a move, so we headed into the bay. We pushed into a large hard bottom flat, we didn’t see much at first but as the tide really got moving bonefish started to make their way onto the flat in singles and pairs. After another half dozen shots we caught another fish not as big about 5lbs. With the tide high it was time to head back to the oceanside and look for permit. Permit love hard bottom flats with fast moving current and high tides. The sunlight was good when we poled onto the flat which is a must for catching a permit on the fly. After a while of searching and no luck it was time to go, when I got to the edge of the flat I could see a mud and out of it was the black tail of a permit. Rand made a great cast started to pop the shrimp fly. The fish rose up off the bottom and sucked the fly in. We ended the day shortly after that, not a bay day fly fishing in the Florida Keys.”

Have you ever caught a double digit Bonefish on a Fly Rod?

We can help achieve that dream...

Looking for something special ask Brian to take you and your wife on an Everglades tour.  You can see alligators, salt water crocodiles, manatee, dolphin (yes like Flipper) and an amazing display of birds and water fowl.  If you like to fish on slightly lighter gear try out the baby tarpon. Baby tarpon can jump 3 times their length out of the water and bend your mind with the fight you get out of these little buggers. Bring binoculars and luch it will be a memorable and safe experience.

On the flats and channels you will find some of the most amazing fish like tarpon, seatrout, big snookredfish, and permit.
