Night tarpon going strong
<p>Don't have time to post a full report (since I'm going to be doing this for three more nights I'll have a full report on Monday or Tuesday - with pics) but the night time tarpon scene is going strong. Last night in Biscayne Bay my angler jumped seven fish in only four hours and worked two or three to the boat on a 9wt. Conditions are marginal, winds blowing out of the north, but we saw lots and lots of fish to toss our flies at.... The fish ranged from 20 to almost 30lbs - the larger ones just took us to school. This is just the beginning of the winter night tarpon scene, they'll be pretty much available now every night until the end of April.... small tarpon heaven.

Bio: Capt. Bob LeMay began his south Florida fishing career almost thirty years ago. He has worked for area tackle shops, mated on charter boats, but the highlight of those early years was winning the Lauderdale Billfish Tournament in 1973 with two anglers who had never fished for billfish before!
By the end of the seventies he was guiding part-time and tying flies commercially. In 1995, he began guiding fulltime. Through Umpqua Feather Merchants his fly patterns are now sold in shops around the world and in catalogues like LL Bean and Westbank Anglers.
