Still alive and kicking, still guiding, plus more...

Okay, obviously keeping up with a blog is not as easy as I thought! I am getting more and more emails from people asking me if I'm still guiding, so I figured I better post something. I am alive and well, as a matter of fact I am busier then ever. Not only am I guiding full time, but I have also started a new venture. After a few months of hard work and planning, I have just opened a stand up paddleboard (SUP) shop in Stuart, The Flying Fish Paddle Sports, is located at 4969 SE Dixie Hwy. Stuart, FL 34997. The Flying Fish is a dedicated SUP retail store, stocking SUP boards designed for fishing, surfing, racing, and of course leisure and touring, as well as, all accessories needed for the sport. We carry a complete line of Bote Boards, their flagship model is the Bote HD, a SUP fishing machine!
As for fishing here recently in Stuart, we are still mainly in our winter time pattern. Pompano, ladyfish, snook on the lights, smaller jacks, etc. I have had a few days where the ocean is nice and I have found the big jacks. As most of you know who follow me close my main season is just getting ramped up! Soon there will be stories and pictures of giant jack crevalle, tarpon, permit, cobia, tunnies, ect. So stay posted and I will try to do a better job of posting more often. Also please keep me in mind if you're ever in the market for a new paddleboard, or at least some cool Flying Fish gear! The best place to follow me right now is on Facebook, just search The Flying Fish Paddle Sports and "like" the page.

Goodbye TS Debby

After losing 8 charters in June because of weather I am back into the swing of things. Tarpon fishing has not rebounded well but everything else has been pretty steady.
Enjoy, JM

A couple shots from my Nikon

Ok, just a quick detour from my new format. Here are a couple jumping shots from yesterdays fly caught fish taken with my Nikon. Today was tough we saw loads of fish but just couldn't get them to eat, very frustrating. I am also testing out a GoPro rig for more underwater shots but haven't had much success yet. I'll keep you posted.

Up to mother nature...

Today was a great day, Jim Simcoke a long time client jumped 2 tarpon and landed 1 on fly this morning. The past few days however have been dictated by weather. Steady SE winds made the beaches very difficult to fish so our focus turned to snook. Multiple snook were caught on a variety of minnow patterns. So basically a mixture of snook and tarpon over the last few days.

Still a mixed bag... Did jump another tarpon this week. My main focus the next 3 days will be tarpon so I'll keep you posted.
