Redfish On The Fly In August

Great news, fly anglers.  The redfish are schooling up and can be found on almost every shoreline in Matlacha Pass. The water is still dark as coffee but blind casting right along the mangroves will pull out fish like this one from McArdle Island this morning.  One big hint.  You're wasting your time if you don't see mullet, and the more the better.  Redfish love following the big mullet schools as they swim right along the mangroves and are just waiting for crabs and shrimp to be flushed from underneath them.  If you don't see mullet jumping along a shoreline then keep moving until you do.

2015 Beavertail Ambush For Sale

I'm selling my 2015 Beavertail Ambush solo skiff with its matching 6hp Nissan 4stroke outboard and Continental trailer.  The boat and motor are in new condition with less than 10 hours of actual running time.  Extras include a full Seadek teak cockpit liner, aluminum grab bar, push pole holders and powder coated motor mount.  The 13' Ambush is a seriously fun fishing machine that will float in less than 4" of water and cruise at around 15mph.  This is a true solo skiff and is USCG rated for one passenger only.  The Ambush combo sold new for $5600 and I'm asking $4000 firm.  Please e-mail me back at or call me at 239-565-2960.

Addictive Fishing In Stuart Florida

I'm loving this new season of Addictive Fishing for both the beautiful Beavertail Vengeance that Blair is using and the locations where he's filming.  Everyone needs to pay close attention to this episode that was shot a few weeks ago on the east coast where the current water situation is reported as being completely polluted with toxic algae.  Blair and DOA Lures founder Capt. Mark Nichols address that situation while catching some huge snook on very basic artificials.
