This week, fishing aboard the “Coastal Fishing Adventures” with Captain Terry Simmons, out of CB’s Saltwater Outfitters on Siesta Key.
It’s been a little windy most of the week, but early in the week I chartered “Dave Lovell” and although we had to move around a lot we caught several small trout and a few bluefish, jack crevelle and a small cobia. We were using gold flake CAL lures with 3/8 ounce jig heads over the deep grass flats.
Mid week I chartered the “Luke Bourns” group whose young boys had a blast.
I hosted a group of friends and clients on my annual destination fly fishing trip to southwest Montana this past week. Due to the current situation with the pandemic, it was a smaller group this year but the fishing was good as usual!
Rusty Chinnis, from Longboat Key, and I traveled from Sarasota to Bozeman on Sunday, August 2, and made the 2-1/2 hour drive to Medicine Lodge, on a 100,000 acre working ranch near the Beaverhead River, near Dillon, MT. We met up there with Mike Perez and Dennis Kinley, from IN, who drove out to met us at the lodge.
It was their first time catching saltwater fish such as speckled sea trout, and jack crevalle. They really enjoyed themselves as they learned how to cast. We used chartreuse DOA cal baits with 1/4oz jig heads and live shrimp. It started out to be a trip for the young boys but ended up as a contest between the boys and their dads. Good job dads.
