Welcome to… It’s My Cast
I will be reporting on Florida fishing opportunity for Reel-Time on this forum on a regular basis. My aim is to provide information on this state’s spectacular fishery in general and, on specific fishing topics of interest.
I will be concentrating on the central east coast area; roughly between Daytona in the North and Ft. Lauderdale to the south. I’ll be reporting fishing news within that area and will concentrate on fishing the surf and fishing the many lagoons. I grew up surf fishing from the time I was ten and acquired my first flyrod when I was thirteen and those are the two methods of angling It’s My Cast will be centered on. However, I’ll also cover offshore and nearshore fishing opportunities and items of general interest to outdoor sportsmen.
If you are thinking of or planning a Florida fishing trip or vacation within that general area, please ask questions at the end of this or future columns. I will do my best to give you up-to-date information on the current fishery be it surf, offshore or lagoon fishing. I can advise on flies, lures and guides and areas to fish if you are afoot or a kayak fisherman.
If you are going to another section of Florida and don’t have any contact there; just ask here. Be sure to tell me when and where you are going and the type fishing you are hoping to do. I have friends and contacts on the West Coast and in the Keys and I can steer you to a guide or a good tackle shop in the area of your choice.
I’m looking forward to writing It’s My Cast and I hope you will help me make it a fun project. Have pictures of your Florida fishing? Just send them along with as much or as little information about them as you wish and we will publish them here.
