March fly fishing has started out with a bang, eventhough we have had low water, winds and cold temperatures. The days have warmed up as has the water and the fish have started to move in the backcountry. Night snook has been productive... Terry Byce of Sarasota had a great night of snook fishing with 15-20 snook up to 26 inches. Barry Sagotsky fished a couple of days and caught trout, big ladyfish, snook and a monster Redfish to round out his Backcountry slam....Ed Borman caught trout, ladyfish and snook with his son Justin who managed his first snook on fly.
Greg Haller of Oregon caught March Refish, Snook and trout for a slam plus a Big Sheepshead on fly which is unusual.
March should get better as the weather and water warms... we have seen a few tarpon cruising around .. There are reports of fish in Boca Grande pass at present.
I still have some dates open for Tarpon in May and June....should be a great year!
See you soon,
