During periods of calm wind this time of year you will have loads of opportunities in the Stuart area. We do alot of live chumming in the summer, and once we have the fish boiling behind the boat we throw flies at them that mimic the chum baits, usually small biatfish patterns that resemble, Pilchards and Glass minnows.
Snook will be are main target as well as the offshore species for the next month.
