March 22 - March 28 2015 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING
Jack, Jeff, Elizabeth, Charlie, William Travis, Munroe, Alec, Sled Bruce, Jim ,David and everyoone else that fished all had their fill of bonefish - the silver ghost of the flats. We have more bonefish per square mile here than anywhere else in the world! Seeing bonefish is both an art and just plain practice. A good pair of polarized amber colored sunglasses helps most people key in to the different looks a bonefish has. On a nice white sandy bottom a fish that is coming right towards you is pretty visible to most anglers. The top of their back is slightly darker as you look down along the length of their body. Once that same fish turns sideways to you it disappears! The sides of a bonefish are mirrors that reflect the bottom creating the perfect camouflage.
Charlie was fishing with his buddy Casey and they both landed permit early in the week. Casey's went on to be part of his grand slam while Charlie's was just plain huge - 25 pounds huge! That is a big permit. Bo landed 2 permit in one day this week and Munroe succeeded with one permit to the boat thanks to the continued fair weather and east winds.
William and Elizabeth landed a tarpon on William’s birthday ~ what a way to celebrate! Casey's tarpon was enough to assure the grand slam for his day early in the week. Travis from our friends Sage/Rio landed his first tarpon ever. Bruce Jim and David had lots of shots but were snubbed by some stubborn fish while Alec and Sled, Mike and Jessie turned a couple bites into landed fish during their first trip to El Pescador.
Jack and Jeff found some snook (10 in one day), Jacks, Barracuda
Casey added another Grand Slam to the Grand Slam Bar's award wall!
