No Motor Zone
Florida Sportsman Member: sake138 We met the bait guy on the water around 730. The current was pretty strong and so was the wind. We ended up drifting north about 7 miles! I got two mahi mahi, one being a 50 inch bull, and my first sail on a yak!
My quest for solitude and hidden fishing hot spots that didn’t involve a multi-day, overnight paddle or motor boat had started a few days earlier with Capt. Charles Wright, local ecotour operator and fishing guru.
Where teamwork and paddle craft meet. Fly fishers see a picture of a drift boat and think Rocky Mountain river trout fishing. But lately there has been some talk among fly-fishing folk that the drift boat might be just right for Florida bass fishing, too.
We never imagined that the already epic dolphin trip would get any better (or worse depending on how you look at it). We certainly didn’t imagine a sizable hammerhead shark would be closely following us back for the majority of the paddle.
