Tarpon and Jacks on fly here in St. Simons Island!
We have been having one hell of a summer! Fishing continues to be strong and mild conditions are allowing me to put clients into sight casting conditions for tarpon. Fishing in less than 8 feet of water we are able to sight fish tarpon which seem to really charge the fly. After a few days of awesome fly fishing one we boated 2 fish one well over 140 and the other over 120 I called Capt. Scott Wagner who is a guide in Savannah and someone I know will respect these fish and our fishery to come down and join in the fun. He eagerly called a few clients until he got a client to bite. They headed south and in just a few hours they had had 2 eats and 2 fish hooked up. Both were lost but no worries he and his client re-rigged and as Capt. Scott made a cast he felt the line go tight. As in any situation a guide always wants his clients to catch the fish but in this case this poon had taken the wrong fly and the games began. My clients and I have now landed 5 tarpon on fly in 2 weeks and jumped off lots more. In the mix have been jacks and even some spinner sharks. We got them dialed in so come and get some and be in a group of the few who have landed a tarpon on fly here in GA.. Oh yah one day even ended with a 120+ pound fish breaking a rods and we still got her in!!
