200 lb. Giant Tarpon 45 inch Florida Snook
" BULLS" After strict Florida regulations and a temporary gamefish status in
1985, the redfish has become our most reliable specie of fish caught on our fishing
charters. Most of the year they can be

athletes found schooled up on
saltwater flats. They are notorious shallow minded fish found on the flats in just inches
of water " tailing.'' Other times they are broken up and show up in the grab bag
while snook fishing. Reds are the most stubborn of fish on light tackle and are taken on a
wide range of baits and flies.
A 77 lb. Cobia
Cobia: The " Bronze Bomber," pound for taken in 5ft. of water pound is the toughest fish on the flats. Found mostly along sand bars, channel
edges, navigational markers, and hard bottom grass flats the cobia will be quick to test
your strength and never seem to give up. They take a wide variety of baits and flies.
Cobia offer great sight-casting opportunities for those patient enough to hunt them out.
Pictured is a large specimen taken in 5 of water off New Port Richey.
Permit: The street fighter of the Gulf. Larger specimens are found on the near- shore reefs, ledges and wrecks, and smaller scrappers found along the beaches and pass edges. They are often caught on small crustaceans and jigs and occasionally on fly. Similar to another fish we catch, the pompano. Bring plenty of BEN-GAY you'll need it. 30 lb. Florida Permit
King Mackerel: "SMOKERS" Caught mainly during the spring and fall seasons. Known for its sizzling runs and burning up reels. Mostly taken on live bait. However, they can be chummed up and taken on fly- Ye Ha!!!! Flyfishing Florida Kingfish
Spanish Mackerel: Smaller version than the king, yet real speedsters on light tackle. Suckers for a wide range of baits and flies. Caught during the spring, summer, and fall.
Grouper: The most popular Gulf coast fish. During the spring and summer we take these fish in 20 feet of water or less. It's bottom fishing with medium- heavy tackle only. Great on the table.
Shallow Water Grouper
The state fish, and what a beautiful one it is. Starting in 1998 we will be spending a
month on the east Proven

coast along Florida's " Sailfish Alley".
We fish this most spectacular game fish on 20lb. tackle for the ultimate thrill. Come on
down and get in on the action. More than a dozen fish possible on each trip!!!
Spotted Sea Trout: Thanks in part to the banning of gill nets and tighter restrictions the trout are coming back. These fish offer great light tackle action and test your finesse skills. They have very soft mouths and like to do a little head shaking. Landing a " gator" is a rewarding experience.
Sharks: We catch sharks of many different species and sizes. Blacktip, Tiger, Sand, Spinner, Nurse, Bull, and Hammerhead are most common.
This Great Hammerhead is over 13 feet and her last meal was a giant Florida tarpon.
What else do we catch? Black
drum, Jack Cravelle, Mangrove Snapper, Sheepshead, Sand Trout,Pompano, Sharks, Barracuda,
Lady Fish, Bluefish, Gar, Large Mouth Bass, and many other tropical, sub-tropical species
