Fall 2006 was in a word outstanding. With no major storms and little rain both the Gulf of Mexico and inland waters were excellent for sight-fishing. There were jack crevalle, pompano and bluefish on gulf flats; pompano, redfish and trout on inland flats and the bull redfish arrived right on schedule for unforgetable night-fishing adventures. For examples from previous seasons, check out these additional galleries; Photo Gallery for Summer 2006, Photo Gallery for Spring 2006, Photo Gallery for Winter 2006, Photo Gallery for Spring 2005, Photo Gallery for Summer 2005, Photo Gallery for Fall 2005.
