Back to reality

Well what can I say as many of you will know I was looking forward to this trip for a long time and it lived up to everything I expected it to be and more . Henry did a lot of blogging while over in the Florida Keys so if you want a good look at what we were up to over there check out Henrys blog here and scroll down through the last few pages .
It amazed me how well managed the fishing is over there , I will not get into it but a big part of the reason why the fishing is so good is the way that it is managed and policed .
It was hectic fishing from day one with a great skipper and great company (Henry, Nick and Paul ). If we did not have the help of an experienced Florida Keys guide we would have caught fish but nowhere near on the scale that we did. Yes you could go there do your own thing and catch fish but for me travelling all that way to fish a place that you know nothing about you may as well do it right and get put on some of the best fishing of your life by someone who has there fingure on the pulse . It amazed me that our guide Rodney Goodship would ask us what we would like to do that day and whatever we sugested we would like to have a go at catching he was able to put us on fish and show us the best approach to catch whatever the species may be . Saying that he was completly openminded and encouraged us to try our own techniques some of which worked and others that did not . Anyone who is planning a fishing trip abroad I would highly recomend the Florida Keys and I would highly recomend Rodney at Fish The Dream you can contact him here for some very reasonable rates for accomodation and guiding . If you do not believe me go and quote some other guides in the Keys .
Anyway I must get back to work and catch up with a load of stuff after being away , it is not easy getting back to work when all you can think about is Tarpon , Permit , Amberjack, and Sharks.

Permit Please.....

Just opened a email from Henry with a few photos of the lads with some fish from their first day on the keys. The guys are having a ball and had a great day hooking up with some nice Permit. From talking to Cian yesterday about the fishing Il be suprised if they ever come home. For a full account of the first day the guys had check out Henry's blog here.

The megabass X-140 has accounted for numerous bass already this season and became a personal favourite of mine at the back end of last season. We have a range of colours in the X-140 which have just arrived, which are well worth a look at.

GG Inakko

SG Teaser

GG pink back gold

GG red belly

Also just in the DUO Tide minnow slim 140, a real gem of a lure in that natural sandeel colour, can work well when fishing into clear water when the bass are being a bit picky.

And finally this nice sandeel colour in the mighty feed shallow.

Tight lines,

Nice weather....

Some really nice weather we are getting at the moment.....yea right! Due to the constant barrage of easterlies and southerlies along the Waterford coastline fishing has been hard to say the least for the last while. I went for a quick scout along the coast today and the power of the sea rolling in however disappointed I may have been that I couldn't of been fishing still was pretty cool...

However not all doom and gloom on the weather front from looking at the forecast it looks like it might just settle down enough to get out with the lures before the ban hits home on the 15th May....heres hoping we get a few windows of opportunity to get out before the month off.

While wer waiting for this spell of weather to settle down to chase some bass, Cian and Paul are preparing for their much anticipated trip to Florida, so Il be in the shop while Cian is away smashing big tarpon and the likes....

Cian will be sending over pictures whenever he can so il be sure to update the blog with the latest catch reports, from what I here Henry who is also heading over with the guys is really looking forward to the great trolling Florida has to offer see here . The lads have the reels loaded, red rods packed and countless lure boxes stuffed full of every lure imaginable to chuck at the tons of really small fish I here swim the waters over there!!

The guys are heading over to Rodney Goodship from fish the dream see here for some info on the fishing the guys are likely to have over there.

Jealous bet I am!!
