Destin Trip

I am glad that you had a good trip down this way. I fished last Monday in the bay as well. I waded the beach on the north shore of the bay at Eglin. I caught a couple of puppy drum that were around...

Cool Okaloosa Report

TroutAssasin,
I understand that you will be crunched for time. The Gulf should have very clear water and calm seas since the wind has been out of the north. Further more north winds are forcast...

I am sorry that you chose your week in the sun when a hurricane was churning in the Gulf. I thought about you when I heard that the road across the Island was closed due to water on the highway. You...

Gustav in Florida

Gustav didn't give us much of a problem here. It was windy and rainy as expected. The surf got pretty stirred up and it will take a few days to settle down. I am going out in the Sound tomorrow and I...

Pompano on the fly

Jacks in the bay

I do not believe the jacks hang around in the bay through the winter. I'm told that they are out there now. They really move around! They are here one day and are blowing up 5 miles away the next. ...

Pompano on the fly

OK here are a few hints. Flies for pompano are most effective if none of the material extends beyound the hook bend. Pompano are notorious short strikers. Look at the jigs that they sell at the pier...

Port St Joe

Bigpopper: The grand kids caught their fish on live pinfish below a bobber. I fish exclusively with flies. Unless I luck into a flounder or a pompano I turn them loose anyway. I just get a real kick...
