You will be fishing aboard a Action Craft 16.2 ft. Flyfisher. Powered by a 90 hp. Mercury. A very stable fishing boat, capable of getting up on our shallow flats for sightfishing, or for carrying a third person for an evening Tarpon trip. The boat has clean decks for minimal hangups when flyfishing, or for walking around on, fighting that big one. Also equiped with rod holders for those bigger rods when fishing for those 100 lb.+ Tarpon and Sharks.
Fishing tackle used is mostly light spinning tackle. I use 6, 8,10,12 and 20 lb.line on my spinners and 30 lb line on my conventional tackle.The rods are made by, All Star, Lexus, Ocean Master, Ugly Stick. The reels are Diawa BG, Diawa Whisker, Shimono Stradic, Shimono TLD 15, Quantum Boca. All tackle is maintained in excellent condition.
We will use mostly Gamagatsu, and Owner Hooks for the live bait..... Shrimp, Crabs, Pinfish and whatever the castnet will yield ie. Pilchards and Mullet. Otherwise artificial baits can be used as an alternative.
You are also welcome to bring your favorite rod or tackle.
My Flyfishing tackle includes 7, 9, 11 and 12 weight rods. I also have a selection of fly patterns for the many targeted species of fish. I will be happy to teach you the basics of flyfishing. Of course, it is not learned in one day......but adding the experience to your accomplishments can be very rewarding!
Most seasoned anglers bring there own tackle.
