Had a good time help fellow guides Scott Macalla and Mark Wright out with a large group in town to do a little family fishing. Fishing was decent landing a bunch of trout with a few pushing 4lbs and finished the day landing and missing a few nice redfish.
Had a great time fishing with the Davis family the following day catching a bunch of small trout mixed with a few nice ones. Here's Blake with a nice trout.
Had some fun fishing with a young angler named Champ. Champ is an exceptional fly caster for only being 11yrs old. We started out early on some big redfish with spinning gear just to put a quick fish in the boat and champ landed a good one that was tailing from a nice group.
We spent the est of the day casting to very spooky fish with the fly rod and Champ didn't mind and took full advantage of the instructions and practice at the moving targets.
Vince and his son Nick from Tampa joined me for a day on Mosquito Lagoon to target redfish and that they did landing 6 reds to 8lbs.
Locals Ralph and son John had an excellent experience on Mosquito Lagoon targeting redfish and trout on a nice calm morning landing there share quality fish both on live baits and artificial.
October is one of the best months to come fly fishing in Mosquito Lagoon as the water and air temps cool and the water rises a bit letting fish access new new areas and are very hungry. Repeat fly client Zach and his buddy Devin from GA came down to fly fish for two days and had great conditions the first day and tough the second. The first day we jumped 6 juvenile tarpon to 10lbs and had a good number of shots at redfish but they refused our offers. The second we dealt with clouds and higher winds but still had a bunch of shots but only caught a baby snook, 1 small trout, and hooked up a nice redfish that took Devin under a drift wood on a shoreline and broke him off…..still a good day. Here's Devin pulling on his first tarpon on the fly after a jump!
Maxx from CA joined for his first attempt at fly fishing for redfish. A cold front passed over the day prior giving us clear skies and brisk north with to cast into. We tried for baby tarpon early with no success but fed a redfish cruising a shoreline with his back but the fly pulled. Late morning we found some scattered redfish laid up on a deeper flat that were willing to eat.
Started the day fishing with Bryon and his son. Bryon wanted to fly fish a bit and break it up and let his son throw plastics. We had lots of action to start and Bryon finally connected after losing a redfish just before landing this guy.
Bryons son also had some great action using DOA Lures hooking a nice snook in the morning but it shook the hook and redeemed himself later with a nice redfish.
That afternoon Zach from GA drove back down to give it another crack at some redfish and left his buddy Devin out home so he could have the bow to himself. Zach fished with me for the first time at the begining of the year to catch his first redfish on fly and he succeeded landing 2 and losing a nice one. Zach is new to fly fishing but is willing to listen and take instruction and has been practicing a lot at home and it shows. That afternoon was a little tough but with the water dropping low we found some tailing reds and cruisers and put our shots in till one ate.
Helped a friend and fellow guide Willy Le with a multiple boat charter also guided by friends Billy Rotne and Joe Roberts. Just a few days after our first cool down the fish were fired up and the sight fishing was excellent. Here's my clients with a few they caught.
Don a new client in town for business made some time to chuck flies on his trip. We some good shots at fish through the and finally hooked up and boated Don's first redfish ever.
Had a fun day on the water with my friend Casey. We both took turns on the bow and my time was with my 7wt. Sight fishing was good to laid up and cruising redfish on the shorelines and before long my rod was bent.
We also found a nice school of jacks busting baits on the surface and Casey hooked up.
Long time regulars Dan and Johan from ME joined me for a short morning trip. Tough conditions with the cloud for spotting fish but we found a few.
Had a slow day with a regular client Todd and his sister from CT. We were finding good fish but struggled to get them to eat but ended on a good note when Todd landed his biggest redfish ever.
I donated a charter to the Halifax Sport Fishing Club a while back and finally lined up the day to get Mike the winner on the water. Had shots at some good fish early on and landed a nice redfish on a topwater plug but no picture do to a pulled hook boat side. Good sunlight mid day made for a nice presentation to this redfish that was tailing just under the surface. This 10lb red ate Mike's live shrimp pretty quick.
Fished with a repeat client from the summer Chris and his two daughters that were in town for the Christmas Holiday. They all landed some nice redfish from a happy school and also boated a nice trout.
Finished the year strong fishing with some local clients Jim and his nephew William. The fish were eating good lading multiple fish from a school on live baits then fed quite a few more on soft plastics to finish the trip.
Its been a great year and I spent a lot of time on the water with some great people and friends and look forward to another good year in 2015. Thanks to all that fished with me this year making it my busiest year thus far!!!Capt.
