Jan 22, 2012 - Feb 4, 2012 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:
BONES: Thank goodness for mudding fish, tailing fish, and waking fish! We did not have a lot of sun, but we did have bonefish on fly and spin to keep our anglers happy.
PERMIT: : Steve landed a permit on the 4th with Captain Cesar! Way to go, numero uno. Dale landed permit on fly with Captain Cesar as well.
TARPON: : Dale landed tarpon on fly…he had his permit and his tarpon…and let his buddy have the deck after that. Wow.
SNOOK: Snook landed on spin. Snook are not part of the catch and release program, maybe someday. They are great eating, and that’s the problem. They are also a magnificent fish and with the big three, make a Super Grand Slam.
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. Cesar is crazy about the tan toad for tarpon, size 1/0.
GUIDE OF THE WEEK
Captain Cesar for double tarpon on fly!
Wow. We have had a ton of activity around here these past few weeks. We had a big group of 40 fellow businessmen and anglers come together. This was their 28th year for these fishing trips, and it was really fun to witness special friendships, which started with a fishing trip years ago. We had some tough weather, but I have to give it to our guests who really kept a good attitude and made it happen! We worked on casting, and learning as well as fishing. Big fun!

- Mixed weather as cold front conditions threatened the first week presenting some rainy days as well as a some sunny days…. then we got hit with another cold front that decided to hover. By the end of the week, the cold front dissipated and we ended up with a weekend of flat calm, beautiful weather blowing from the NE at about 5.
