cheers mate, big chance to try a few shots florida guides are renowned for being top notch bit pricey but they have all the kit and bait for whatever floats your boat but book early and book the best you can for a trip on the water , are you going up and down the keys or staying put in one spot ? migrating tarpon land in the keys around jan feb along with bones permit and cuda ,pick the right guide for your fishing and best of luck :victory::thumbs:

Nothing planned yet, it's the wife's 40th in December so a big family trip after Christmas is being lined up,

She's looked at a villa near the parks but I've said I'll do a week for the kids but that's it, I need to be near water lack of crowds after that lol (sound like a right brat don't I lol)..

 

Once I've more details I'll let you know as your advice etc would be most welcome..

Of all the fishing I've seen or read about its fishing for bonefish on the fly that really appeals to me, everybody who fishs for them always says about the speed of them. You've lived tge dream fair play.

had bonefishfever a good few years now , once you hook a good sized bone on a flat its game over its that addictive , then once you've lost a reel biggie then you step up your tackle , any bone on a flat is a reel ball think I read that a burst speed of a carp /pike is 7mph and the burst of a bone / cuda is near 35mph they do shift cheers, the runway to bone /cuda central aee94acc-9670-448c-b209-b03a379156d3_zps
