Went to the panhandle last week. Lot of rain but did manage a couple of fly firsts. Got a whiting and a flounder in the surf. Not big but better than a sharp stick in the eye. Did get a bluefish, big needle fish and snagged a huge stingray, ugh! Had to break it off after a long fight hoping a big red would show instead.

Yesterday, 9-21 we had a dozen bass from 16 to 24 on Hollow Flyes and one 6lb bluefish. Today it was summer flounder (a.k.a. fluke) hammering pink Clousers.

Most people fishing the Salt would call this bait, but for me its my first Tarpon.  OK it was only 10 or 11 inches, but now the Tarpon "skunk" is off.

Hey Utyer.  Nice fish.

In our neck of the woods, a 10 or 11 inch tarpon is an average/good size, particularly in the backcountry.  But then our poon are a different species to yours, and grow to a maximum size of only about 30 to 35 inches.  (Ox eye herring)

Second trip walking the dykes along the Indian River:  Little bit bigger (13") Tarpon this trip, and a nice (18") Redfish.  Had 2 trout, and 3 ladyfish as well.

Yes Mike, to an old Trout fishing guy like me this is what I call fun.  A drainage ditch or canal, may not be my idea of a river, but they do contain fish (plenty of fish,) that will readily take a "fly."  I have now identified over 35 miles of these dykes canals and and impound ponds along the Indian River from Titusville North to Oak Hill.  I will be exploring many of these areas until the Shad run starts on the St Johns River.   

 

I believe that most of these impounded ponds are "fresh" water.  I put the photos here since these fish are more closely associated with salt water fishing.  The only one picked up in the Indian River Lagoon was the Red, all others were from the impounds and canals.
