When hunting Cudas on the flats one must study bonefish patterns. Especially on an outgoing tide. Channels is also the name of the game. Channels in the 8-15 foot range encompassed by flats on either side and the occasional structure below. Having a nearby bonefish aggregate site (usually a deep hole or impression within a channel, a spawning hole or place to meet before the show. Sometimes I will drive through the middle of the channel before I poll it. Call me crazy but I do believe this helps stimulate the bite on given conditions. Hence the irritation being the name of the game.
Avery caught her first Bonefish. Half hour later ohhhh Baracuda!
Aves with her double header!
Well deserved rest after a day way out on the bank
On these particular conditions we had a full moon high tide working with the wind direction. Under these conditions we were able to push a few miles into this relatively shallow canal. A spot that you can only fish a couple times a year. Long story short the fish were hungry and far from wary.
The turtles are everywhere right now. Was thinking of producing a young turtle fly for big tiger sharks. Question is where to start?
