Sept. 18th - Sept. 24th, 2017 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING
We are happy to welcome and be part of the continued support that Orvis shows the lodge. Cynthia Harkness, the host of a women's group and Jose Delgado who is hosting groups the next two weeks and all participants who have traveled from different parts of the United States, have been reeling in the bonefish. Lots of double digit days.
Several of our lady anglers managed to get their permit game on and catch and release some nice fish. Our guide team put the women on the fish and the remainder of the story consisted of big smiles and a bunch of bragging rights. Way to go ladies!!
Tarpon are everywhere and hungry. Cynthia, the group leader, managed to have a two tarpon day and walked away with tarpon fever. She may never go false albacore fishing again. The migratory tarpon season continues to slow, but the resident tarpon aren’t going anywhere; and who knows, may be glad the boys of summer are gone so they can bask in the glory and offer the anglers an awesome tug. Never know what they’re thinking? Come find out…
Grouper, Ladyfish, Mackerel, Snapper.
Unfortunately none this week, but close.
Flies that worked:
Bonefish: Christmas Island Specials in orange, pearl and pink size 6 & 8
Permit: Peterson Shrimp, Mantis shrimp and Avalon crabs.
Tarpon:Toads and bunnies, black on black, red on black, tan and olive are all great.
Once again our hearts go out to our friends in Mexico and Puerto Rico as they experience the wrath of Mother Nature and all her might. Please think about our friends and wish them well.
