   As we approach the summer months, the fishing will intensify along with the temperatures. I’m already starting to see nice schools of redfish and black drum tailing on the flats. Fly patterns that have been productive for my clients are tan gurglers in the morning, and then switching to a heavy white mullet pattern in the afternoon.

   Went out for an after-work trip with Matt and Zack from Roy's Bait and Tackle Outfitters fly shop on Memorial Day. Bonita were super thick, munching on anchovies and silversides. We landed upwards of 20 fish throughout the evening, and Zack and I had 2 or 3 doubles while we were out.
