  1. The last one was 15" and 1 lb plus, July, August and Sept just off the beach the were 18-20 and fat, Poor mans Tarpon, was blast on 6 wt. (small eel patt. 1.5" ) Was fairly easy to get 6 or so, and easy to spot.
  2. One of my past 15 year favorite places showed a sharp decline after mid July. I did notice the mount of fish in estuaries when not on the beach? I am fortunate to have lots of options close by. The amount of fish was amazing, I was not disappointed with size once August set in , I'm happy with the 20-25" fatties, Probably my approach. We can only hope this years numbers get a chance to get big. Bait was on and off, especially sand eels

  12. I got to meet Lefty in the mid 60's as a teenager. I fished The MET tournament for Permit at least 12 yrs. (placing in top 5,and 2 second places) The likes of Lefty, Flip Pallot ,Jimmy Albright, Stu Apte . and many many more were always found at Bud $ Mary's. Lefty could always hold court talking fishing, as a writer he was always illustrating or teaching. He and Stu Apte Jimmy Albright and others showed how to land 100 lb tarpon on fly rod and light leaders. Today that is the formula most use. Trying to hold back a tarpon was useless.. "Let him use up his energy jumping" He knows every dimension of fishing and is willing to instruct,talk and write for all to enjoy.
