Spanish mackerel on fly!

Murray and Joan fish with us a few times a year and, this time, Murray got to use his fly rod.

Murray Beatts and his wife, Joan Wuischpard, from Tampa, love their visits to the Middle Florida Keys where they always stay at picturesque Conch Key Cottages and do a couple of fishing trips with SeaSquared Charters.  This trip was also to celebrate Joan’s birthday.

And, Murray always brings his fly rods along just in case the opportunity arises.  Well, today was the day.

We headed out to the Atlantic side, but finding the waters too rough, changed course and went to fish one of my Bay wrecks.

We had good, steady action.  Murray and Joan caught a bunch of big mangrove snapper in the 16- to 18-inch class (two to three pounds) along with some bluefish.  Murray put his fly rod to task on Spanish mackerel in the five- to six-pound category.
