Is Salt Water Worth It?

Recommended Posts

Saltwater fishing is a great change of pace. Always do a couple 1/2 day inshore flyfishing trips when we visit the coast. Usually $500  per day plus tip.

When I look out across a vast area of water like that I just wanna throw my rods away.  The attempt to find a specific species of hungry fish feels like finding a soda straw in a hay field.   

Casting practice.

It's very similar to fishing the rivers up here. Find some transition areas where there is a shallow ridge or drop-off. Redfish will follow those contours and then wade those areas and you will catch fish. Also very important to figure out which way the fish are moving...always into the current. That is usually a very slight current in a bay system created by tides or winds and then wade slowly into the current direction to maximize the opportunities.

You will be OK if the shark takes your bonefish/redfish/tarpon. Folks who get bit are the dumb ones in waist deep with a stringer of fish  tied to them. Bull sharks like those guys. Finding fish, and reading the tide is key. If their for a week I’ll guide first two days and get some guidance on where and when to fish off the beach over the next 4-5 days. Morning sight fishing for Snook off the west coast of Sanibel is a blast! 40-50’ cast at most, basically a hike and spot. Fish will be cruising the shore chop eating 3” long white bait. Any shad pattern will do.
