FORD OUTFITTERS with Conway Bowman and Capt. Martin Carranza

Hi all;
this is the trailer of the TV show FORD OUTFITTERS in the Sportsman Channel

It was so much fun fishing with my buddy Conway Bowman again.


July and August in South Florida is very hot, both in terms of weather and fishing and Everglades National Park is the epicenter of the best fishing in the world.

This is the time of the year when you can catch almost every species everywhere in the Park.
Schools of finger Mullet and Mojarra are plentiful and behind these are the fish we want to catch and you can use the method you want be it live bait, cut bait, lures and flies.

If you are a fly fisherman any mullet-y looking fly about 3" long is the ticket to catch fish consistently.  I usually tie my F Mullet and Bleeding mullet patterns with deer hair tails, saddle or arctic fox collar and Ep fibers dubbed for the head.
For lures I usually buy Charlie's big dipper and super shads in pearl white and watermellon.

There are lots of opportunities for sight fishing the turtle grass flats, sandy flats on the edges of the keys, muddy banks at the lower stages of the tide and tarpon rolling, especially during low light conditions.

If you are prospecting water as opposed to sight fishing I usually prefer to fish under branches, tight to the mangroves or covering well marked cuts with a good current where I know the fish are hanging.
While blind casting for the more desired species we will also catch Snapper, Lady fish, Topsails and more.

This excellent fishing conditions will remain for the next couple of months and I look forward to put my clients into consistent action lots of fish.
