The backcountry is such a special place so it really doesn't matter but Mother Nature screwed us this year.
If you are heading to south Florida now, not to worry. Winds have stabilized and returned to an east north east pattern. In turn the water has started to clear. I'm confident the tarpon will be back in force in a day or two.
Until next year . . . F*cking bummer.
On the flip side I got to fish with my dad, a great guide and friend, in my favorite place in the world, and doing what I love to do - hard to complain about that.
Them tarpon are in for a world of hurt next year.
