Nov. 27th - Dec. 3rd 2017 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING
Working his way through all the species that we target, Alan landed over forty bonefish and a host of other species. All of our anglers were successful in spite of the west wind blowing. Bonefish are the last fish to get spooked when the west wind blows because they prefer a falling tide as long as it doesn’t fall too much too quickly. Anglers headed north to wade and found some big bonefish tailing on the flats near Rocky Point. The lagoon fishing turned out to be productive as well. Always good Bonefishing here!
Our in-house anglers landed over twenty. Alan, a fly fishing angler from the UK, managed to land twenty Permit during his stay and sixteen of those in a single day. He found the perfect fly after changing flies several times and the permit could not resist. Catching sixteen permit in a lifetime is a fine achievement, but sixteen in a single day is unheard of!! Nice work Alan!
When the west wind blows, the tarpon go into deeper channels where they feel more comfortable and have a tendency not to feed as often - which is exactly what happened this week as the wind direction changed to a west/northwest wind. A lot of tarpon have been visible on the flats but only a few caught. The front passed by and the flats are again full of water so we look forward to more tarpon stories this coming week.
Mayan Cichlid, lookdowns, mangrove snapper, jacks, barracuda, yellowtail snapper, and snook.
Congratulations to Gus on his Grand Slam.
