  1. Big Red

    Promised my neighbor’s son on his 13th. birthday we’d put him on a big red. Bingo! With Capt. Tanner putting us on the big ones Robert landed this 30 pounder, 47 inches, all by himself. All smiles. Also some slots, black drum and trout on spin and fly.

    Yesterday my friend Greg and I took his son to Indian River for him to catch a big red on his 13th. birthday. Bingo! 47 inches and about 30 pounds. He handled it all by himself. Good job. That’s our guide Capt. Travis Tanner who put us on the fish.
  3. Post on Facebook that snook are all over the place. Moving out from the back. Fish story or? dh
  4. Big Dave, that about says it all. dh
  5. Beach Snook

    Haven’t tried it yet on the beach.Very nasty conditions lately. Got a bunch Saturday night at Lake Worth area. All shorts but fun on a 6 wt.
  6. Beach Snook

    Getting close to the spawn cycle for snook. Going to try some of these muddlers on the beach. Anyone using?

    A little long rod action on black drum. Not today though. Resting...late in the night banging dock snook. All shorts. P.S. Daren never smiles, just catches the most fish😄
  8. Capt. DeWalt is so busy with his carpentry I’ve had to resort to the guide scene and that long rod. They don’t allow any bananas or popping corks on their skiffs. dh
  9. Remember the days when Ralph built that custom poling platform for my Mav tunnel. A thing of beauty ( the platform that is).
  10. Beach Snook

    Similar but I’ll try that also. Thx dh
  11. Prophylactic Fuel Tank Removal-MA17

    If not mosquitos and 100 degrees then what’s it? That’s why that night docking and beach at first light is job one for this old man.
  12. What is this?

    Fishermen will buy anything .
  13. $$$$$$$

    The guides need groceries too😄
  14. Paul, I know exactly what you’re talking about. Running thru Mud Bay a while back in my Mav T watching my GPS instead of relying on experience and parked her on the mud flat to the left of the island instead of the right coming home. Now that was a grounding😄 dh
  15. Peacock Bass

    Fished today with Capt. Kevin Cannon in Delray. Those little critters are really feisty. Good day.
  16. Simrad Total Scan

    Dino, did you give away all our way points😄
  17. Sure a lot of paint on your engine skeg. 😄 dh
  18. Yami F150 Service

    Don’t forget to take the prop off , clean and grease the shaft. If not done on schedule and it’s corroded you don’t want to watch how a shop takes it off. dh
  19. TFO BVK 9 wt.

    Reduced to $200 with shipping Have two TFO 9 wt. fly rods and am selling one. Four piece BVK with rod sock and TFO rod tube. Retail rod $299.95, rod tub $49.95. Rod is slightly use but is in perfect condition with no scratches Trident Fly Fishing has made me a reasonable offer for rod. Any offers here before I ship it off?
  20. Guess they all belong to Capt. DeWalt. dh
  21. Without pictures it’s only a fish story....somebody told me.😄 dh
  22. 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
  23. 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😄
