  1. It was all about variety yesterday in the ENP. We launched early at OR (with 25-30 others from the Naples area who were entered in a Red/Snook tournament). Low tide at 6:43 a.m. so we would have incoming water all morning followed by a falling tide in the afternoon. Weather was overcast, but nice. Winds were calm. Fished with my buddy, Mike (InTheSlot12), who was injured in a boating accident back in June. This was his first time on the water since then. We caught just about every species--reds, snook, trout, jacks, ladyfish--but the capstone was this large tarpon that we caught at the end of the day along a shore line on the incoming tide. Most of the catch was on hard plastic sinking twitch baits or soft plastics. The tarpon ate a soft plastic jerk bait. I lost one after one jump that took a purple DOA Baitbuster; that would have closed the inshore grand slam for me. But Mike brought it home for the boat grand slam! The day would not have been complete without spending some time with Ranger John Kalafarski to hear his stories about snook otoliths, the importance of no see ums (ceratopogonidae) to the chocolate industry, and this Burmese Python skin.
  2. Ever have a tarpon jump in your boat? Think you've snagged the bottom or a log only to find you've hooked a crocodile? That and more--snook, trout, black drum and tarpon! My buddy Mike (Intheslot12) was on fire! Here are some pictures from Sunday in Flamingo. The tarpon was rather "green" as you might imagine, so I dropped a towel on him to try to calm him down!

    12 weight fly reel suggestion

    Hi all, I purchased a biscayne billy baroo 11/12 weight fly rod used, but appears to be brand new. I wanted to pair it with an affordable (only because this rod will be used on occasion only) 12 wt reel that would complement the rod. I'm open to suggestions and why please. I would like to stay in the max $250 price range (if this cheapens or enhances the rod please tell me) not familiar with this rod company. I do not hunt big game in the back country often....but looking into being able to target large tarpon in 10,000 islands and at bridges etc... Thx for your input!
