Captains fishing the Bay have repeatedly reported to me that the speckled trout their anglers are catching regularly weigh in the 3 to 5 pound range. When you hook one of these big guys, they open their mouth wide & are some kind of work to reel in to the boat. They are also some kind of good eating! Capt. Jr. & Tommy Holland & Kelly Butler are hoping to be able to fish every day!     Tarpon fishing from flats boats has been above average so far this year and doesn'...

They say that spring comes in like a lion or a lamb, but what do you call the first day of summer with a heat index of 115 degrees? For fishing, if you can withstand the heat, it can be a good thing, especially for tarpon anglers. Whether you are sight casting for tarpon with a fly rod or you prefer bait casting for tarpon and sharks, they do like it hot! And according to reports from all the guides, it doesn't get any better. Be sure to ask us about our Tarpon/Shark trips!...
