Yea i do that with downriggers on boat. I was looking for info on fly fishing for them.
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.
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
Yes i am a young one. Haha i hope one day to be called the master angler one day...maybe not specifically blackmouth master angler...but we will see.
Right on Jeff! :thumb:
You edited your post and put that picture on there and now i am on the quest
you can use a flasher while trolling with a very large squid fly.
You said that already....
Sweet fish Jeff! :thumb:
yes i know... i was just thinking of tying a squid fly of my own and casting it. not trolling it.
We made some glow squids....havent got to test them out really yet...will get back to you on how that goes lol
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
"we made" ? When I was tying those at my house alone I didn't recall you anywhere near the area... hmm...very interesting...
