We had some visitors in from Chicagoland this past weekend and had a nice day out on Sunday.

John and his son Blake booked a charter with me thru CB’S Outfitters on Sunday. Both anglers are from the Chicagoland area and let me know that they are fly fishermen. With that info in mind we chose to fish using only artificial bait only.

Our first spot looked good from a distance away with slick water and jumping mullet. However when trolled closer we found the outgoing tide made it to shallow to get to were the schooling Fish were working.

Feeling a little frustrated we moved to some deeper water and immediately hooked up with some nice healthy trout using 1/4 oz jig heads and little John tails. After catching and releasing several fish we trolled into a protected cove and found snook willing to attack our lures.

Finishing out our morning trip before the weather got nasty we again moved to another deep grass bottom area were we picked up more lively trout and some poor man’s tarpon (aka) lady fish.

With the winter weather, Colder water temperatures, and the extreme low tides it is a good idea to have a well thought out fishing game plan to be successful this time of year.

Fishing has been a lifetime passion for me. Depending on the skill level of my clients what I like to do is put them on big fish using artificial lures. I like to educating and passing on my knowledge of local history and the many sights the area has to offer while we are on the water.
