Backwater Micros

With this constant pattern of cooler weather we have had lately in southeast Florida, the water temps have dropped and the fish are in their wintertime spots. I happened to do a little exploring lately and found a mess of little tarpon hanging in the deep backwater creeks trying to stay warm. A heavily weighted size 2 white shminnow has been the go to fly for these fish, presenting it with long and slow strips. I have jumped fish to 10 pounds or so and have seen a few 20 pounders roll, but have yet to get a hook in them. So for the time being i'm fine with the 1 to 5 pound devils....a tarpon's a tarpon in my book lol
