Fishing Report October 22, 2010by Capt. Bill Baldus on 11/05/10
I fished the crew from Cheeky Fly Fishing yesterday testing their new series of fly reel prototypes they brought with them on their tour through
We started late in the day with not the best tide for sight fishing. We found a few tarpon showing in the first bay we stopped at but the rolls were not consistent and no takers. Our next stop was far to the south where we found some nice reds and tarpon earlier in the week but too much water today. We finally connected with a nice snook at a small creek mouth as the tide turned. It came unbuttoned on the first jump. We found both small glass minnows and larger baits in most of the spots we stopped at.
There were a lot of ladyfish willing to eat the fly as we worked the shore on our way back. Short trip and not a lot of takers but great to meet these guys and have a chance to see the next generation of fly reels in action.
We will keep you posted,
Capt Bill Baldus
