Back from Florida


Recommended Posts

Had a great trip to Pensacola Beach last week. Got to fly fish the surf and caught a ton of Ladyfish, a few Bluefish, and a fish I have no clue what is. Mostly used a 7wt except used an 8 last Friday.  They were eager to eat shrimp patterns I tied from previous trips to Belize for Bonefish and Clousers as well. Saw a bunch of sharks, mostly small, but a 6 foot Bull followed a Ladyfish a new buddy had hooked right up onto the sand! The June grass and seaweed gets pretty bad in the afternoons. Most days I fished, or tried to fish the beach at our condo, the last two mornings fished the National Seashore between P'cola and Navarre. Highlights of the the trip were, SRX racing at Five Flags Speedway (won by Helio Castroneves), watching the Blue Angels practice from Ft. Pickens, my son taking wife on a helicopter tour for her birthday present, and best of all, quality time with my family!
