They had to motor the charter boat up to Ft Lauderdale then take care of family and home. We used DirtyBoat outa Robbie's stayed at Smugglers Cove. We worked out a reduced deal for me to fly fish
Thinking of a Jeep Wrangler
Good evening Dave, I have had three so far.  I had a YJ (1987-1995).  I had a TJ (1997-2006) and I now have a a JK (2007-2017).  The YJ (1988) was a 4 cylinder soft top.  Really go
weirdest catch
Nothing too weird. Two young seagulls with the fly rod, a pesky cottonmouth down in NW Tennessee that had to be discouraged with a whack of my fishing rod to discourage it from chasing my Jitterbug. W
Acklins Island? Anyone Been?
Those were some BIG wahoo, and a whopper bonefish. Didn't know it took 2 days to get there from MIA, I know you have to stop in Nassau but I don't think that should take up a day. We will be staying a

Best Big-Fish-Eats-Little-Fish Story
Dang Byron, I loved your tale.  Kinda makes you wonder what kind of kids are being raised and indoctrinated with pure BS.  Really sad if you ask me, kinda like the woman that asked a hunter
February Flies from the Vise
Cheers Chef! Yeah i have not fished many tandem flies so i was just curious and was cautious with the balance, i mean if i rest the tandem rig on my finger it rolls hook point down, i added the leadfr
Longnose Gar
Years ago we caught lots of Sailfish on rope lures.  While Sailfish don't have big teeth like Gar, they have small, rasp like teeth that get hung up in the rope. I'd troll a rope on heavy spinnin

West Australian Open 2013 trip report (Gamefish)
Great report Jam.  Those dolphin sure are beautiful when you first take them out of the water but I was always amazed at how fast their color fades as soon as you get them on ice.  Nice waho
Mahi Mahi and general competition gamefishing on the fly, leader etc..
If the water is clear I would go about #40 for the tippet.  Dolphin don't really have brutally sharp teeth like wahoo and king fish.  If you get one hooked on regular gear, leave it in the w
Bob, the front of this particular fly (the tail of the squid) is tied onto a cotter pin that has maybe a five-inch piece of 50-pound mono attached. The rear of the fly (head and tentacles) is tied on
The Monster Magic streamer

Sailfish, white marlin, wahoo, dolphin. At $1400/day, I don't see it happening any time soon. My only hope is Powerball.

First tropical fishing a success...
No, the Caymans aren't a top destination for fishing for most. The flats are not large and expansive like those in the Bahamas or the Keys, and there aren't great numbers nor size of fish.
New to the Group
