Week In Review

Tougher than usual week for wind and weather. Upcoming forecast is much improved.

What Guests were Catching

Bonefish

Even on the bad weather days bonefish kept the action going on protected flats and in the lee of the cayes.

Permit

Good numbers of permit around in several areas.  Some nice ones were landed. Including several that were "firsts" for the angler.

Tarpon

Strong east winds kept most of the boats off Savannah flats this week, but tarpon were landed around the Mangroves in several locations. Some big ones were rolling at the south end of the areas we fish.

Other Species

Snapper, jacks
