Had a blast fishing the surf at Little Talbot a few weeks ago with Mark Tkachik and John Botko (owner The Salty Feather on Beach Blvd). The trio each got a Red. Nothing huge but just great to get out there....what a beautiful place.

JYJ, flies of choice are Striper Swippers, John Botko's Surfin Wooly and Sand Flea flies work when the Pompano are in the surf. All flies can be found at the Salty Feather. I highly recomend John for guided boat trip out there wading the surf. John knows this area and fishery better than anyone. There are a lot of deep holes out there at low tide and there are plenty of sharks and big rays lurking around in close range, not for the faint of heart also very easy to get stranded out there when the tide and current comes up :pale: .

Yes, That was a fun trip. Seeing the island disapear as tide came up was a little scary. We seen 2 good sized sharks(10 feet from me), a big stingray, schools of whiting and reds. I did catch that 20 inch Red that John is holding off a sandflea patern. Talk too John about a trip.

When yall are out there, do you sight cast or blind cast into the surf? Everything I ever caught in the surf was from a blind cast.

Hellfighter,
That particular trip we blind casted more than we sight fished mainly due to the stained water.I have been out there On an ideal day with bright sun and clear water where we stictly sight fished and didn't cast until you saw the fish or their shadows.....way cool . As I mentioned earlier in this post: A word of caution: if you plan on doing this type of wade fishing out on Little Talbot Island you should go with someone familiar with the area and surf. You have a fairly short window out there maybee 3 hours tops and It is very easy to get stuck on a rising tide.... be in tune to your surroundings....large sharks are abundant in that area :pale: . I recomend using a guide the first time. John Botko of The Salty Feather knows this area and this type of fly fishing extremey well.

Black Clouser,
Thanks for the reply. You are right about the tides and conditions. They can be very scary if you are not paying attention.
