Welcome to The Bonefish Flat

There's a stiff wind in your face as you squint in the sun trying to see what the guide sees. "Bonefish at 12 o'clock about 90 feet, do you see it, mon?" You don't and keep squinting, your hat pulled low to keep the sun out of your eyes. "Bonefish at 11 o'clock 70 feet out. Come on man, do you see it?" As the guide is calmly shifting the skiff into position, this time you spot the fish, "I got, it," you reply.

"OK, Mon, Bonefish 50 feet at 10 o'clock. Cast when you're ready."

Cast when you're ready. And with that you drop your fly, roll out a cast, false cast once, and then...

Welcome to the bonefish flat.

It's cold. Not much going on.  I did a little scouting this weekend for some kayak launch sites for the spring, but nothing too crazy.

And last night, it hit me.  Man I wish I was tarpon fishing.

Here's a little video I saw over on the Drake that will warm up your Monday.  Two things I love: Tarpon and Cuba.
