  1. Black Uglies

    They should know. Out on the water most every day and constantly on the phone networking. The hard work is the other part. If not my shoulder wouldn’t hurt at the end of the day😄

    Can’t wait for the red fish spawn latter in the year to target some of those flats donkeys, BIG red fish. They’re a little smarter than the smaller ones. Guess that how they get so big. I’ve been fishing with the same guide up there since 2001. He knows how to find them. dh
  3. Black Uglies

    A few days back I ask for fly recommendations for black drum since I was planning a trip to Titusville with my favorite guide Capt. Travis Tanner up that way. Since I didn’t get a response I tied up a couple to try. Black zonker with purple EP Brush for the collar with bead chain eyes, a little flash. Looks like the big uglies liked them, at least five did. All about the same size, cookie cutter around 15 pounds and pull like a plow horse. Used the 9 wt. initially, but believe it or not broke the rod on number 4. Switched to my 10 wt. which made it easier on the fish for a faster landing, and quite honestly easier on me. dh

    What's working for the big uglies. Any suggestions? dh
  5. Delray Peacocks.

    One of my fishing buddies was out on Thursday and they were really turned on. Funny, the Saturday fishing report said the peacocks have lockjaw. dh

    Since forum was updated I can’t find the PMs. Help an old man😄
  7. Delray Peacocks.

    With this crazy weather and wind Gary and I headed to Delray this morning to target some Peacock Bass on fly and live bait hoping to find some shelters water with Capt. Kevin. Not much success with the wind blowing around 20.A little tough with the long rod but did manage to land a few. Using live shad we tore them up. Some pushing five pounds. Also a couple of large mouths. Home by 2 P.M. Few pics attached. dh
  8. Peacock on Fly

    REALLy windy today but managed to land a few on the Eat Me pattern. The Peacocks for the most part were bigger than usual. Several pushing five pounds.

    What crushing speed and top end are you looking for? As I recall my '06 would cruise comfortably around mid to high thirties and top end was 51 fully loaded with two guys. The rev limiter came in at 6200. Only did that once.
  10. Again it might depend on the type of fishing you want to do. Many of the guides mentioned earlier don’t fly fish for example. If you’re looking for laid up tarpon in the back bays the bigger boats might not be an option. Question the guides,etc. Some of them are booked way in advance as the tarpon fishing picks up. dh

    Had an ‘06 2000V for several years and undoubtedly one of the best boats I’ve ever owned total utility considered . However it has a F150 on the back which was the correct power in my opinion. Would be a little hesitant with the F115. dh

  13. Try to charter Andrew Bostic for a fly trip and he was booked months ahead. He used to guide the Bush boys from Texas.
