The weather down here in SW Florida has been fantastic for about a month - over 80F every day. Since they were having Shrimp Festival on Fort Myers Beach today, we decided to go to Barefoot Beach in Bonita Springs. (No, this isn't really a beach report, but a fishing report, so "bare" with me.) Coincidentally, I caught a snook last week at the end of the beach, but that was not part of the decision process - that's my story and I'm stickin' to it! Here is a little video of the action.

Hope you enjoy it. I'll be fishing a couple more times before heading north the end of the month.

Hey, I almost forgot: my buddy Jim said some of you stopped by to say hi at the Fly Fish NH Show last weekend. Glad you could make it. What did you think of the show? Any good bargains? See any good presentations?


  1. Are you thinking about your northern migration?
    I fished a small stream yesterday and the skunk cabbage are popping through.

  2. Definitely got that on my mind BT. I will hit the ground running with fly fishing classes and doing some serious fly tying. I tied some between Thanksgiving and Christmas, but I need to tie up a few dozen more. Of course, I have to hit my local wild BT stream to see how my little buddies weathered the winter.
    How are the water levels?

  3. The larger rivers are swift and high. But the small streams have recovered OK.
