September and October are the best time of year to fish the ten thousand islands and or ENP. Tarpon, snook and Reds are all here. Reds will not be in as great as numbers at that time of year. But when tarpon are around who cares about anything else. Most of your tarpon fishing will be early morning and looking for laid up fish. I would not want to lose a tarpon because of a weed guard but that is just my opinion I guess. flies for snook at that time of year could use a weed guard but if you pull slowly on the line if in the bushes the great majority of the time the flie comes out and falls straight into the water. The flies Captain Blanton posted pictures of will work well for snook, tarpon ect... Unless you have a skiff you will need a quide. contact Bill Baldus for flies and guide service. His flies are quickly becoming my go to flies. check out the Natural and 10k baitfish series. These 2 flies are deadly on all the above species. Hopefully the wheater will warm and save our snook. I fished last week and could have picked up a 32" snook with my bare hands. That time of year think tarpon first and snook second.
