Nov 26, 2011 - Dec 3, 2011 Fishing Report
WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:
BONES: Some giant schools of bonefish showing up on the east side – also up from the lodge, beach side. The guides report hundreds of “big bonefish (4 – 8 lb fish) in schools right off some of the docks! Congrats to Jeff, Eric, Justin, Renee and Kara for their first bonefish.
PERMIT: Permit shots all week, but the final comment is, “It’s too cold for them to eat!” All the same, schools 5 – 15 lb, and then some bigger fish found south of San Pedro. Jeff caught a small permit on spin. We primarily used the “Avalon” and the fish followed……. Smitty was awarded a “jack” pin because he landed a jack, but really, really wanted a permit on fly.
TARPON: Yay Bradford! Tarpon on fly. And Justin, first tarpon on fly as well! Lots of shots of tarpon from the north to the south, but when the wind went NE it shut down.
SNOOK: They're around.
FLIES THAT WORKED
Frank was our featured tier this week. We made Avalon’s out of all kinds of materials – we were short on the beads, so we modified the fly. It got the attention of a lot of permit! Light flies on Savannah, tan, white. Small crabs working well for bonefish.
It was really fun to have so many of our friends here this week. Guests who have been coming here for years – so everyone feels right at home. I do think I need some more support. When the guides and the guests give me a hard time I can’t hide! Sorry you guys are going to miss our Christmas party this year! It was a great week of laughter, serious angling and bonding with new and old friends. We also celebrated our Office Manager, Marlin’s, 23rd birthday! It’s wintertime in Belize and it’s pretty nice. Thank you! --Lori-Ann
