I'll be down in 2 weeks from Friday...I'm planning on bringing a 7 wt and a 10 wt. If I'm going to split time throwing at snook in the surf then maybe checking out the canals around the Naples/Marco Island area, what would be the best suited lines for those situations?
Also any tips on what I might encounter (fish-wise, aside from snook) as well as what flies I should carry around? Btw, I am somewhat familiar with Venice and pretty confident I can score on snook, based on past trips to that area (which pre-date my flyfishing days, more than 10 years ago)...but I'm clueless about the Naples area
I guess like most everyone else and their mother, I'd like to find some baby tarpon...can a 7 wt handle these fish?
Btw, my one and only tarpon that I caught was all of 12" long and was caught when I was 8 years old (in the early 70's). My dad was stationed at MacDill AFB near Tampa and we had this creek near our house that had juvenile forms of most any popular game fish you'd like to catch in FL. The rod that landed that 'beast' was a Zebco 202
