Beach trips in May

I have one fisherman wanting to share a 5 day beach trip this May. If you are interested, please email me at

Greg Coats and a very nice Jack Cravelle

Dennis Peel with a nice roosterfish

Inshore fishing has been right on!

The fishing has been super, lots of shots at quality fish, from big roosterfish to big jacks and sierras. On most days we are getting shots at cubera snappers on the surface.

Beach roosterfishing in May.

I had two weeks open up for my action packed beach roosterfish seminars. These are private trips up to 3 people... May 5-12 and 19th -26. Please email me at for more info.


Roosta the big fish fly that works!

Bruce Olsen form Umpqua sent me this photos and caption. Check it out! You can get your Grant Hartman Roostas from Umpqua.

An enormous GT caught by a friend at Xmas Island. The guides were arguing if it was 80 or 90 lbs, but both said it was the largest G.T. they had ever seen landed on the fly. You can see the fly in its mouth. It was, by far, the group’s best pattern for the real bruisers during the trip.

Incredible fishing day

Wow, the fishing is sooo gooooood.

Just ask Bob Galvin from Boston Mass

Bon had busting fish all day long and caught the big jack on the fly. The jack was the biggest fish Bob has ever caught on the fly and he did a great job.

Way to go Bob!

Our famous Arch

Arturo all smiles.

Beautiful day to be alive

Doesnt get better than this.

Marlin , Dorado and tuna OH MY!

My good buddy Gar and his friend Tony were out with us today and had a heck of a good day on the water... He said he wanted to go offshore and thought he was nuts... The marlin fishing had been slow..Well, after over 30 years on the ocean, nothing surprises me anymore, but when Alex called me around 11am and said they had already got 8 tuna, 6 dorado, and a striped marlin, I was pleasantly surprised.. Here are a few photos of their great day fishing with us..

Live report

Sierras, jacks and roosters. Too much fun! It's bouncy though. A bit of a chop. Sunny skies with a little wind

Beautiful day!

Live report

Gary's first fish on the fly, what a way to start the day!

Gary and the fly of the day

His famous tampon fly. Hey don't laugh, 20 years ago I used a Alaska mouse pattern that changed the history of roosterfishing. My high copied Rat pattern was born

Beautiful day. The front has passed and not a cloud in the sky

Even the slow days

I would consider yesterday slow fishing

Bob caught 4 snapper and a jack and at the end a few Sierra. Now that's a slow day. The fishing is so good in Cabo, that a good day on the water anywhere else is our slow days. It was slow because the cold front pushed through. Our cold fronts are nothing like yours. Just some clouds and a drop in pressure

Okay enough of that.

Bob is a great guy and a lot of fun to fish with. He is fishing again on Thursday, and I will keep you posted

Great day on the water

The Wyoming boys did it today

Tons of big roosters and jacks today.

The big 40 lbers were super picky, but the 20 liners were biters.

Sam Vignery and his brother Bob show off a few fly caught fish, while Mike Lansing shows off one on light tackle

On our boat we caught 10 roosters, 2 big jacks and 4 Sierra.

Way too much fun!

Beach fishing

Don, Miles, and Gram had a blast beach fly fishing with me this last week. The roosterfish eluded us, but we caught over 7 different species including Kawa Kawa tunas.
Great guys, great times.
