5/15 – 5/16 – Bonito, Good Redfish (some tailers on fly too)

5/16 PM – My good Buddy Capt. Gordon Churchill called me this afternoon and told me, even though it was blowing 20+ knots…the tide was decent and he was looking for tailers…and I was invited. I simply can’t turn down some quality time with a good friend and his awesome little flats boat. We hit a few flats, and in the screaming wind, it was a bit tough to find the fish. Gordon struck first, planting an 80 foot cast right in the face of a hungry tailing fish – GULP, fish on. Beautiful. I was next – and I got lucky, I spotted a tailer, just 15 feet from the boat’s bow, and made a made a dash of cast – 1 strip. BANG. Probably the most memorable fly cast I have ever made – and I thank Gordon for making it happen. With 1 fish each on the fly – we called it a day at that. Now that’s an evening to remember 8)

5/15 AM – It was a surprisingly nice morning, and even though I could not convince my client to hit the ocean this morning to chase the awesome bonito/spanish/bluefish/amberjack on fly activity- I woke my buddy Scott Crocker up and we hit the reefs to find a few Bonitos. We fished for just a couple hours and hit the BONITOS hard and left just as the big spanish started to show. What a GREAT morning! I got back with just enough time to grab the skiff and get my client on the water to get after some reds

5/15 PM – Paul was all about the reds, and even though we were facing building winds and mediocre tidal conditions – he wanted to go after them. While it wasn’t red hot, he found a few fish on artificials (spinnerbaits and jerkbaits). Even though the flats were very exposed in the 15-20 knot wind and the tide was extremely marginal, we looked for tailers for a little while but didnt have much luck. We ended up having a great trip – despite the winds!
