BLACK DRUM

Can be found year round at random in the Ten Thousand Islands and Everglades National Park. These fish are difficult to target as they are not as abundant in the area as other species. 

STRIPED BASS

I spend about 6 weeks in the summer targeting Striped Bass on Cape Cod, MA. These are a great species to target with a fly rod and a good friend of mine guides in the area. Website: monomoyflats.com
