Awesome annual drum fest with some heavy hitters! Eric, Brad, and Lake always get it done! Shoutout to the youngest Lake with the biggest of the day, it was bigger than him! @yamahaoutboards @power.pole @yeti @costasunglasses @cortlandline @pennfishing CloseEncountersFishing.com
Solid morning of sight fishing for James from New York. We found a lot of schooling fish! Big school of giant redfish, schools of black drum, and a school big snook! Broke off on a couple big snook but managed a little guy for the slam! All in all another great day on the water!
Sightfishing trout off the sandbars has been stellar! CloseEncountersFishing.com
Happy Fathers Day!
Most days the grown ones find a way to get away. Today, we won! It was an epic 2 hr battle on a beautiful flats tarpon. From the cast, to the hook-set, to the fight, Jonathan was very coachable and did everything right. After a strenuous and lengthy fight, a broken rod, and despite a lot of bull sharks we decided to hop in to give the fish the best revival possible. Let’s just say Johny boy got it done today! He saw the bite I was on and he capitalized. Congratulations Jonathan on your first tarpon, you set the bar high! On a side note, the fishing is the best I have seen it in years at the moment, don’t call me in three weeks when it’s over, we need to go now. Big Snook, big black drum, big trout, big redfish, and big tarpon! Who’s else is ready to try their shot at a fish of a lifetime? I know I am! #SilverKing #Kingoftheflats #Tarpon #fishingcharter #orlando CloseEncountersFishing.com
It was a hot one but some good fishing! Black drum, redfish, snook, trout, and tarpon action! CloseEncountersFishing.com
Solid day with the guys from texas. Day before we went 0/4 on poons, with these guys we went 4/4. Talk about polar opposites! We pulled the smallest one in the boat for a quick pic because we figured he was shy of 50 pounds. Wish we could have got some good pics of the big ones. We also got a bunch of big drum and some big reds too! Think you could say the bites pretty hot! 🔥🔥🔥 CloseEncountersFishing.com
