Hudson Guide Service

Specializing in Redfish and Tarpon fishing

Meet Your Guide: Captain Adam Hudson

A native of England, I chose to make the US home at a young age, living and guiding fishing in the western states. In time the attraction of sun and salt proved to much and I relocated to Florida to specialize in salt water fishing, and embrace the “southern lifestyle”. I have been fishing and guiding Florida Panhandle waters for over a decade, and am committed to offering the highest quality fishing experience.

New Season!!

New Season!!

Boy that was a cold winter, no? Still I hope everyone enjoyed the holidays and all you hunters were successful.

OK…. here is the first report of ’14….

Water on the flats is crystal clear making sight fishing for cruising and sunning reds ideal. Big black drum are tailing on low tides when it’s calm, offering a fine opportunity for fly casters. Around the passes larger, “over slot” reds are holding in around 8 feet of water, and eager for a live shrimp or “gulp” jig.

Warming temperatures will have the action hotting up on the flats in the coming weeks, so give me a call and we’ll hook you up!

Happy 4th

Tarpon on fly is the order of the day as we head to the holiday weekend. Migrating fish are moving through in large numbers. Dr Michael Guerra recently enjoyed five great days connecting with tarpon including this feisty specimen.

The bay is full of bait now and fishing for reds and trout remains good. Don’t forget to look around bouys and structure for tripletail!

The eagerly awaited arrival of Tarpon is here! Weather and water temps are stabilizing and conditions are ideal for sight fishing.

Capt Adam still has some free days, so give me a call!

Redfish and some trophy trout are biting best in the early morning and large spanish and bluefish are roaming in marauding packs.

Here’s a shot I took of Capt Jack West and his anglers yesterday.

What species would you like to fish for? With water temps getting to the mid 70′s that’s a tough choice just now!

Trout and reds remain the best sight fishing, while hoards of spanish mackerel and ladyfish are fun, and pompano are moving through the passes and flats.

A lot of folks are hoping to jump the first tarpon of the year. Meanwhile Capt Cody Cash took a day out in Adam’s boat and sight fished a very nice cobia.
