Jan 1, 2012 - Jan 7, 2012 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:
BONES: Big bonefish targeted this week with some rewarding results. Marina, aka, Boo, landed a nice 4 plus bone up by Rocky Point with Captain Gilberto. Guests have also been fishing the beach up north, and finding a fish to fool now and then. Falling tides will always have the bones a little more nervous – they really, really like the rising tide to feel fat and happy.
PERMIT: The hardest thing about the unstable weather is that you really have to be “on call” for Mr. Permit. When it’s right – go for it. Sebastiano landed a nice 10 lb permit on fly with Captain Sinoe. Nick also landed a nice permit with Captain Cesar. They are up in the Park – as well as south.
TARPON: : The same deal with tarpon – if you are chasing tarpon, you need Mother Nature in your favor. Tarpon on fly – Sebastiano had 3 eat and landed 2 around Savannah, lots of other jumps from other guests, and new tarpon addicts are signing up each week. Once you get that giant hand shake from Mr. Tarpon, it’s hard to forget it. Julian will be back, and he even tied up a fly for that day. The wind messed up the water for a few days, but when it cleared, they ate.
SNOOK: Snook are cruising the beach – singles, and schools of 6 or so! Gordy, Captain Emir’s son saw a small school right in town, went home, grabbed his flyrod, and jumped one! None landed, but snook shots. Picky eaters sometimes.
FLIES THAT WORKED
The Avalon fly for bones and permit! On the calm days you needed plastic eyes, or bead chain with a good presentation. Christmas Island Specials in yellow this week for permit…… light colored flies in a 1/0 for tarpon.
GUIDE OF THE WEEK
Captain Gilberto for his amazing shore lunch!
A bit of disappointing weather this week gave us some tough days. But when the sun came out, we were reminded of why we make the time, and practice – to make it all come together. When you seize the moments and give it your best, there is no better feeling.--Lori-Ann

- We had a great week, and then a cold front came in and wreaked havoc with our nice conditions. One day was shut out due to thunder and rain, then a couple days to recover, and now we have settled back into our prevailing east wind and gorgeous weather.
- Air Temp:
- Highs: 27C/81F Lows: 20C/68F Winds: Our cold front patterns have been such that the winds come from the South, then West, strong N NE and ending East. With each wind it is a different fishing day
- Full Moon January 8th
