Got off of work early on Tuesday and decided to throw the yak in the truck and try the River side of Guana. I had never fished the area before and I saw where the tidal coefficient was -0.9 so I though I would get a good idea for the bottom structure. Paddled out with a nice guy who hadn't fished the area a ton either. After I anchored up threw out the popping cork rigged with dead shrimp and also threw every color artificial imaginable to try and determine what was biting. While doing so, saw a big tarpon break in the channel about 50 yards away. Awesome site to behold. Ended the day with one 14 inch flounder. Not too bad a day, and learned a lot for next time.

Congrats on the nice flattie on your first trip to Guana River!!
It is a good place to fish the outgoing tide and ride it south to the ICW, and then ride it back to the dam on the incoming tide...

PS: I have also seen tarpon jumping down there several times...never got a bite from one tho!!

Here's a ? For you guys who fish guana regularly. Is it worth getting out there late morning? I gotta send the kids off to school so can't get out till like 8. Worth it or not? And if so, bait suggestions?

Some of the biggest fish caught out of Guana were caught well after 8...or so I've heard.

Early morning is nice but not the be all end all for fishing any location.

Time + Tide + Weather + Moon Phase + Technique + Location = fish

Some hints on fishing Guana area

wind out of the north - fish the dam side in front of the dam

Falling tide- fish the south side just below the dam

High tide - I've seen Jacks and we jumped a large tarpon in the evening

North of the dam - scout out the bait fish and work the edges of the bait schools

Mirrodines work well for Trout, Reds and some flounder

The Tarpon was jumped on a small rubber shad on ultralight gear...
