Boca Grande Fishing Report 4-09


Tarpon are here but the wind has kept them out of sight most of the time. A few fish are showing and many are being caught in the deep channels to the south.
Snook have lost their minds and are all over the grass flats, but still are difficult to
fool with a fly, but some are receptive . Redfishing is goood in the backcountry. Poling and sight fishing them has had decent results with the largest being a 12lb slob. Trout are just off the flats in a little deeper water. Estaz Maribou fly has worked well along with some Puglisi patterns. Night snook is good and consistent for fly fishermen using floating lines and minnow patterns.
When the wind stops, Tarpon will show in numbers and should be willing to take a fly or a plug.

Once in a while, stop and look where you are.
Put your rod down, take a deep breath and relax.
Fishing is taking everything in and having fun.
Put a smile on your face and pick up your rod and thank God you are where you are.

Tight lines, and screaming reels
