Sept. 27th - Oct. 3rd, 2015 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING
Isaac, Mark, Ari, Scott, John, John, Jefferson, Eric, Rich. Harvey, Ken, Branon, Josh, Ken, Richard Deborah, George, Stu, Ken, Coleman, all got the bonefish to do what they wanted. Some catches numbered in the 20’s while other caught just a couple in a day. There were many first bonefish ever on a fly, which is a big step in anyone’s saltwater flats career. We are blessed with a huge number of bonefish which we tend to take for granted.
Our returning friend Robert had the only permit scored this week. Two of them to be exact as he took his time, waiting for the guide to say Ok, lets go, a perfect cast later a fish was on. Repeat again! It sounds so easy to be cool in front of a permit but the reality is that it makes grown men and women so nervous that we rush it which never seems to work.
Tarpon (Sabalo):The family Dozier were tarpon machines as they all produced at least one tarpon each. John Sr., John Jr., Jefferson and Uncle Scott seemed to have the tarpon’s number despite the nasty rainy weather. Robert ( of permit fame above, landed 2 tarpon on his last day out on the water. Ari added three more tarpon this week, but his real claim to fame was the super grand slam of last week. One of our day guests Kent landed 4 tarpon in 2 days of fishing. Branon & Josh, landed a tarpon apiece after working it for several days getting more and more determined, then the next day they got 3 tarpon to the boat. Isaac made the best of his only day on the water with a sweet tarpon ( every tarpon is pretty sweet, right?) Harvey capped his week with a ninth inning tarpon to make it all worth while! Coleman has been working the tarpon on a fly thing for years and I am so happy that his quest became reality
Jacks, Barracudas, Snappers, Ladyfish, Snook
No slams this week… I am betting on next week!
Flies that worked:
Bonefish: Christmas Island Special
Permit: Buaer Crab, Avalon with bead eyes
Tarpon: Black death, Chartreuse bunny, Tan Toad, white toad
Bonefish showed in numbers for many anglers including first timers. We are blessed with an incredible bonefish fishery and it shows. Weather was mostly cloudy but that did not stop Robert from landing two permit. The tarpon were a main attraction and it was a great week for those targeting them.
