July 1, 2012 - July 7, 2012 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:
BONES: Ed J. and Cpt. Kechu went for permit ½ day then settled into bonefish- 40 fish to the boat in just 4 hours! LeGail – first bonefish, Elisa – first bonefish, Larry - first bonefish, Bill – first bonefish, Theresa- first bonefish, Deborah - first bonefish. Our bonefish continue to be cooperative.
PERMIT: Cpt Erlindo and guest John landed a permit, Peter on the same boat would have had one had his backing not bound up half way through the fight….Ed with Cpt Emir landed a permit as part of their grand slam. Several boats reported multiple shots at permit, a few follows, a bite or 2 but no others landed.
TARPON: Waters still pretty rough for tarpon. Nick our Australian friend went home with lots of stories of hookups but none to the boat. John and Captain Erlindo, Jake and Cpt Tomas, Mike and Cpt SInoe all landed tarpon on The 4th of July!! Nice weather helps!! The next day the water at Savannah was a bit cloudy so not luck for the fly fishers. Bill and Cpt Carlos did land a nice 35 pounder on a live sardine!! Ed & Steve with Cpt Emir both landed tarpon on consecutive casts as they hit Savannah flats on Friday just after the tide changed.
SNOOK: Snook were not targeted.

GUIDES OF THE WEEK
Captain Emir with the Grand Slam for Ed!
Happy Fourth of July! Grand Slam for returning guest Ed and his favorite guide, Cpt. Emir! The lodge was pretty busy this week with small groups and couples from all over. The fishing was still affected by weather - just a little too windy or a little too cloudy. Nice weather - just not perfect. Most Improved Caster goes to Elisa (also a happy honeymooner!) --Ed.
