Let's Get it On (already)!
great distances and many anchor drops make up typical bags of a few
reds, snook, trout, jacks and cobia. Since the passing of Lili we have
been plagued with blue birds skies, easterly winds (east is the
least), and warm winds. Not exactly prime fall conditions for
temperamental gamefish of the flats.
Snook are starting to stack up in typical fall hangouts in both decent numbers and sizes. Last week after the immediate passing of Lili, we got a hot bite going with 11 of 15 upper slot fish making the day. As the skies cleared and barometer went high and steady, the bite turned off to what looked like the first hot bite of fall.
We have taken several juvenile tarpon the past week and luckily, they have made the "highlight of the day" film on days when it was trying just to get something else going. I will always be a snook fisherman by heart and reputation, but by some sort of karma, tarpon have been very good to me the length of my career. I have been fortunate to be blessed with an ability to find them near all year in many uncharted waters of this area. For a species so prized as a tarpon to have saved my trophy days so many times, Megalops Atlanticus---this Bud is for you.
As the saying goes “be careful for what you wish for---you might just get it”, I am a bit reserved in asking for a cold front to gel fall fishing (its been a long wait) but---I like my chances at this point. Let’s get it on (already)!
