    Tampa Bay guide In July??

    The family and I will be in the Tampa area July 4-8th. Iím looking to book a day trip around the 6,7th or 8th. Maybe the 5th would work. Looking for a fly guide but not opposed to using gear if a last resort. What species are prevalent then? Tarpon migration strong then? Would like to go after tarpon since my last trip ended with no tarpon landed.
    Thanks for any insight.

    He and I have talked a little. Doesnít look like our schedules are matching up. Her took me out last time I was down. Many factors were stacked against us. I did a guide on the Atlantic side last time and want to fish the gulf side this time down.

    Nice, well in that case never mind. He is pretty good at the Mons Venus as well. I had a 3 day hangover after the last time Warthog and I ventured out to explore

    Utah is not a proper training ground for KW shenanigans.

    2Funky- I will ask around about fly guides. There is a really good one that docks at O'Neil's Marina. I just can't remember his name.

    If you can swing a day trip with the family, let me know. We can head out to Egmont Island and check out the Gopher Tortoises. It is a really cool spot that you can only get to by boat. Fly fishing is pretty limited these days with the boat I have now. Looking to get some inflatable SUPs to use in the no motor zones. If I have them by July, we'll hit it up.
