June 10, 2012 - June 16, 2012 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:
BONES: Every boat was successful even on the rainy days. The first bonefish on the fly for Kristen ( her second visit here after honeymooning here 2 years ago with hubby Matthew. First bonefish for Kyle, Trey with Capt. Carlos (30 bonefish to the boat on Friday for Carlos on a poor weather day! Our new Scottsdale Orvis group braved the weather Saturday coming back.
PERMIT: On the best weather day (Thursday) Jim and Rick from the Anglers Club of New York hooked 2 each and landed 1 each with Capt. Emir. Their attempt at a double grand Slam was thwarted by tarpon that would eat but they just couldn’t get them to stick! Ladd from the Anglers Club also landed a medium size fish out near Savannah with Capt. Emir.
TARPON: Robb from South Africa has been getting many tarpon to eat every day but is in a landing slump, he needs your positive thoughts… Young Myles lands a big one – Mick from the Anglers Club Landed one 80 pounds or so, Dave from The Park Meadow Orvis group landed a beauty with Capt. Luis. Pete also came through with tarpon to the boat! And many were lost the most notable was an 80 pound fish that took Leigh to the cleaners – he now prefers nice little 30 pound fish. Considering the poor weather this was a pretty good week for tarpon. - Ed.
SNOOK: Snook were not targeted.
