Dorado On A Fly
Current Temp: 68 WindN0
An exciting change to flats fishing is to experience some blue water fly fishing. A dolphin (dorado) on a fly is quite an experience. Best fishing for these is out by the tongue of the ocean near one of the buoys. Technique is to use chum to get them in the area and then it is usually a no brainer. When they are on the feed they will hit almost anything. If you get a big one be prepared for a lengthy fight. An 11 or 12 wt. rod is best.
Many of the area guides and Hank will take fly fisherman out to these areas. If the wind is over 15 I would not suggest going out in a flats skiff but rather an offshore boat. If you tend to get sea sick you better stick to the flats. Also if you go with Hank there is no turning back and he does not come back until the cooler is full.
