Spot and Stalk

At Southern Waters it is all about the spot and stalk. Something about finding a fish and strategically setting up on that fish gets a guide's blood flowing. It's a spontaneous moment that requires skill to capitalize on, promoting a higher level of achievement in leu of a successful result. The suspense heightens as you wait between the time of first sighting the fish to finally coming tight on it. It makes you a better fisherman because you watch the fishes behaviors, you learn how he reacts to different presentations, you quickly see what works and what doesn't work. As you approach the fish his lateral line instinctually senses your presence, leaving you little room for error. This type of fishery is almost certain to bring frustration but in my opinion it is also the most exciting and rewarding of all.
