  1. Hey all. I know you have some experience catching baby tarpon on flyrods. This email we got today should be of interest to you. We are trying - collectively - to learn more about them. From the Bonefish Tarpon Trust We need your help to identify juvenile tarpon habitats in your area. BTT has begun mapping juvenile tarpon habitat to 1) determine the habitat characteristics that are best for juvenile tarpon and 2) protect healthy habitats and identify other areas for habitat restoration. BTT has already been involved with three juvenile habitat restoration projects and we will use this data to expand the restoration and protection effort. If you are aware of any locations that hold juvenile tarpon that are 12 inches long or less, please contact JoEllen Wilson at [email protected] You will be asked for an exact location to better assess the habitat characteristics for that spot. Don't worry, all information is strictly confidential and WILL NOT be disseminated to the public in any way. We appreciate your assistance in protecting the future of the tarpon fishery. If you would like to donate to this project or any other BTT project, click here...
  2. Yesterday there w as very little whitebait off Green Key beach. A NPR resident who lives on the backwater of the Cotee was also throwing the net there, and he reported 4 ft tarpon schooling near his house. May put the yak in off Madison street and check it out. Caught another cobia off Green Key this past week, as well as the usual trout. Spanish mackerel are doing drive-bys and tearing up tackle there every time I go out now. If you can handle the wind, it's a great time to be fishing. My heavy wind anchor:
  3. I knew the weather was going to be bad but Tuesday was the last weekday I was going to have off for awhile so I explored a backcountry area I'd been wanting to hit for a long time. It was drizzling rain all morning and I hit a deep area looking for baby tarpon. I found them, lots of them, but they weren't eating. I casted to several good sized rollers with no strikes. I did get fooled one time when I casted to a roller and got a strike. Almost immediately though, I knew what I had, a catfish. Knew it was time to make a move after that, so I went back out on the flats but the tide was super high and it was overcast so I couldn't see fish in time to make a cast. Then, the real rain came, a 2 hour downpour, but I stuck it out (I had raingear on) and just explored a little. After the rain stopped, I came across a channel, with light colored sand flats on both sides. Even with overcast and drizzling rain I knew I'd see fish here so I staked out and just watched for a few minutes. Sure enough, I started seeing every kind of fish you could possibly want to catch. Redfish, black drum, huge snook, and tarpon all on the same flat. I could see a fish in the distance and made a cast with a huge pinfish fly thinking it was a snook, slowly twitched a few times and it got hammered, it went straight for the groves just like a snook should and I kept it out and got it closer and saw stripes - it was a decent black drum that ate a 5" baitfish fly. After that I saw a good size poon coming towards me, I had thrown on a little black and purple baitfish fly because they wouldn't eat anything I was throwing. I stripped it as fast as I could past its face and it absolutely crushed my fly. Probably the most savage strike I've ever seen. After several jumps, good runs, and tail walks I got it in. My first ever fully sightfished tarpon (i've casted to rollers many times in deep water and caught them but never had a shot on a crystal clear shallow flat). After that, I caught some smaller reds including one lower slot and lots of little snook, all sightfished. I could've thrown on a crab fly and proably slayed blk drum because they were EVERYWHERE but I really wanted a good snook or another tarpon. The sandy areas were key to me seeing the fish and I had a strong outgoing tide and it was right before dusk. It was an epic couple hours of sightfishing, can't wait to hit it again.
