    Still curious about this . . . particularly when you note you are experienced in catching them using gear ? I'm thinking a self-described "Master Angler" should be providing information, unless maybe you're holding out on info and 'fishing' yourself. :)

    Naw... I dont think he is doing that... only one i have ever seen do that is toadthedry...

    I usually dont fish for blackmouth much with the fly rod because i am hunting this time of year, but when i have done well, i am able to find bait fish concentrated, usually around eel grass flats on a decent shelf. I am sure there would be BM off the eel grass around Eglon and those areas, but they are awful exposed and tough to fish without a nice minus tide.
    I like to fish very flashy flies. I have also done very well on a slider/popper in the past.
    good luck

    O no people are starting to bring my name into this.

    Yes i have fished gear for them and know the basics of that. But thats out on boat with depthfinder, gps, downriggers, 60-180 ft water. Was just wondering about flies, lines and times to hit beaches.

    I wish i could hold back information on fishing from you guys, but hell, i havent caught a fish on the fly since fall when i first started. So no worries on me holding any info back.

    P.S. i wouldnt really hold back even if i knew what i was doing :)

    MasterAnglerTaylor, if I am not mistaken, is a teenager I think. He's just new into the sport and looking for a few tips. I like the fact that he calls himself a Master-angler. It's the old "act-as-if" mentality. Someday, I have no doubt, he will be the Blackmouth Master-Angler. For now young Jedi, here is a picture of a hatchery blackmouth I took (and barbecued) on a Clouser at 8:30 am in the morning last Sunday off a local beach. I hooked and release another that was a native. The one in the picture is only 24 inches long, and about 5 pounds, but I have seen larger blackmouth taken on the fly. Like Mr. Les Johnson said, many of these fish push past the 10-12 pound limit, and into the 20's. Keep at it. Jeff

    Are there any well-known beaches open at night for fishing that are good for blackmouth. I am not asking for your secret spot just a point in the right direction. Thanks
