Nov. 13th - Nov. 19th 2017 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING
The larger bonefish continue to hang around on the flats. Sightings of five to six pounders are becoming the norm as the water continues to cool. Big numbers of bonefish were caught in a single day of fishing. Each Bonefishing angler is landing at least several larger fish as part of their daily total. It is a great time to be on the flats Bonefishing! .
Lots and lots of permit are being seen with over ten permit landed this week. Two anglers landed seven in just two days of fishing. The permit are hungry and ready to eat. Andrew managed to land his first permit that weighed in at over twenty-five pounds. Awesome permit fishing the last couple of weeks!
The tarpon are around in fairly large numbers but are not as eager to play as the bonefish and permit. The tide and wind have made some of the tarpon fishing days difficult, but anglers continue to have some success. The snook bite has been ramping up so lots of fisherman going after those guys using streamer patterns. Be sure to come prepared for snook and have a little extra fun and the chance at a Super Slam.
Lookdowns, snapper, jacks, barracuda, ladyfish and snook.
No Grand Slams this week.
