General Discussion / Fly Fishing in a Pravate Pond
« on: May 19, 2014, 08:48:12 AM »
 :)  I was invited out to a private pond to fly fish for bass and perch..little did I realized they're were catfish in this pond too... I started out with a 5wt fly rod and after the third break off. I went and got my 8wt. rod with a 15lbs test tippet..  Tied on another whoolley bugger an as soon as the lure sunk about a foot the line rips off again,but this time he didn't get away...Full meter was pegged...

Opional to use lead thread for weight..and also for body filler I use parachute line out side casing...works great for hold a rattler..

Outing Chat / Bull Reds, Jack Carvelle, on a Fly??
« on: April 11, 2014, 10:24:11 AM »
 :)  OK> for fly fishing for the bull reds and big jackcarvelle at the Jetties... I have a 10wt rod and a big reel..I know how to catch these Bull Reds on conventional..but I would like to learn how to catch them on fly rod , twenty pound plus reds and Jacks.  I have caught them in 5 to 15 of water along jetties...So, what do I use for tippet an what flies to use... I will be happy to take any of you pros with me and show you were these big reds  are if you show me how to catch them...with a fly... These bull red are like a bull, when they run , they will give you a workout... so will the Jacks...   One of things on my bucket list...!!

Planning this trip too.. samething I will take people with me.. try to catch big reds and jackcarval on fly at the jetties.  I have caught many big reds on 2oz jig with Gulp shrimp tail jigging in 30ft of water around the edges of jetties with trolling motor on a moving tide.. 2oz rattle traps works too...casting paralle to bank with 20# brade with a bass flipping stick,  I think a 10wt rod and heavy flie would work as well...never tried but will do this time. I have caught these big reds maybe six feet from bank in about five or six feet of water.  Do catch big trout sometimes. I have landed a fifty lbs tarpon at the jetties, fishing for trout, also forty plus pound Jack Carvelle fish....be fun on a fly... bring you lunch!!!:)
