Recently, a client reached out with concerns about the windy conditions and how it may affect the fishing.
Valid concerns no doubt!
That’s exactly why I chose to move here years ago.
Weather is something that you have to consider every day when you’re putting together a game plan for your clients.
With the Everglades and 10,000 Islands you have many options based on wind direction and velocity.
Thousands of islands, creeks, and rivers to hide in!
This is where having the right boat and equipment makes a huge difference in angling success!
Lately, the wind has been East and cranking!
Creating winter like tides!
Extremely low tides, constricts the landscape and concentrates the fish!
That being said, you have to fish smart!
Having a Power-Pole will save your day!
Being able to Power-Pole down and dissect the water that’s available to you.
Anchored with the wind to your back, you can make longer cast’s and work artificials and flies more effectively.
Check out this week’s pictures, all of these fish we’re caught in less than one foot of water, including the triple tail!
Book now, fishing is on fire!
Be sure to bring plenty of DOA Cal shads in glow/gold!
This is the time of the year, that you can target just about any in-shore species you desire. Plug, Spin, and Fly! One of my favorite techniques this time of year, is top water! My go-to lure is a DOA-PT7!! It’s a soft top water with a 7/0 hook that you can skin hook to keep it snag less! Can’t do that with most hard baits! It also has rattles, and maybe it’s the best skipping lure ever created! It’s also great in open water conditions when floating vegetation is present. It’s super easy to walk the dog with this bait! I carry a number of colors, so I’m ready for any atmospheric conditions. It’s also a great time of the year to tie on a popping bug or gurgler for fly anglers! If you’re looking to check off that bucket list angling trip of a lifetime, I have a few openings left in May and June!
