Sight fishing for Big Red Fish, Bonefish in Mexico and Sight Fishing for Free Floating Triple tail and Cast and Blast photos.
 
 
 
 
February through March brought clear water and schools of red fish.  Although the weather/water never got cold enough for long enough for the red fish to form huge schools, we were successful throughtout the winter when we had good weather finding good numbers of happy fish.

The trip to Ascension Bay  in February 2017 was a grand success. At the end of the first day, 10 intrepid anglers had boated over 100 bonefish.  The week continued with more bonefish, permit, jacks, snook and baby tarpon brought to the boat.  I have the lodge reserved for February 11-18 2018.  Contact me soon if you want to spend a week fly fishing in Paradise.

Late Winter
The winter time sight fishing red fish was excellent. When we had nice weather, low wind and clear skies, we found schools of fish moving all over the flats. It never really got cold, and the huge schools never formed; however, we were able to consistently put clients on fish on the low tide in February and March.

February’s high light was a hosted trip to Casa Viejo Chac on Ascension Bay in Punta Allen, Mexico. Ten intrepid souls traveled South of the Border for a trip to Paradise. Another trip is planned from Feb 11-18, 2018. Let me know if you are interested.

 After I returned from Mexico, sight fishing red fish from February through the middle of March continued to be good: lots of reds, clear water and nice schools of fish. About mid March we had a very cold spell and the winds started howling. The Winds of Spring seemed to blow almost constantly, making conditions for sight fishing red fish difficult. We had a few slick calm days where we caught a few fish. In late March, the triple tail started showing up. When the wind is down, sight fishing for triple tail offers a nice change of pace from flats fishing.
SPRING
April and May brought calmer weather and better fly fishing. With more stable weather, brighter skies and calmer winds, we began to find a little more success The water warmed, the reds broke up into smaller groups and the triple tail continued their Spring Fling in front of Jekyll. There were a few days this Spring where we lost count of the number of Triple Tail we saw free floating. They are a challenging target. Even though inshore shrimping is open,  the shrimpers are not pulling close to shore yet and the Triple Tail fishing has continued into early June.  
SUMMER
Soon we will be looking for Jacks and Tarpon to begin showing up and crashing bait. Trout fishing has picked up with some big Roe trout being caught inshore and on the beach at Cumberland.  
Early Summer time sight fishing red fish is in full swing in the Golden Isles of GA.  
When you are down here for vacation, work or just passing through.  Give me a call and let’s go “Hunting Fish in the Marshes of Glynn'”

I was featured in the inaugural issue of Southern Saltwater Fly Fishing Magazine, highlighting a "Cast and Blast."   In the Fall of 2016. Kyle Burrel and I caught tailing red fish and shot Marsh Hens on the flood tides, while David Cannon conducted the photo journalism shoot.
