The Broad Cast
Every year it gets harder to find out of the way fishing and hunting locations. We’d all like to get the most from the limited time we spend afield, so our scouting efforts need to be effective and efficient. Scouting a location is a necessary part of being successful, but sometimes we’re limited by what we can see from the road, time constraints, access limitations, and physical ability. I’m sure we’d all like to know what’s on the other side of the mountain without having to physically go there.
Fairly recent technical advances provide us with opportunities to do some very in depth exploring from the comfort of our own homes. Becoming acquainted with them will greatly increase your chances of finding that next honey hole.
South Florida exotic fish behavior that leads to a strike and hooked fish can be broken down into two distinct categories:
- The fish sees something that looks like food and must eat it.
- The fish sees an enemy that may be a threat and must destroy it.
Pretty simple if you ask me. The trick is being able to tell the difference, selecting the appropriate fly, and presenting it in a manner that will trigger a strike.
