Week In Review

Windy weather reduced the amount of available open water to start the week, but lots of options were open by the end.  Lots of anglers took home pins for landing snook on the fly. Matson scored the first Grand Slam of the year with Capt. Junior!

What Guests were Catching

Bonefish

Bonefish were biting well. Wade fishing in the lee of the cayes was a good option on the windy days.

Permit

A good week for permit.

Tarpon

Tarpon were slow while the winds kept the anglers off the larger flats. But, the bite picked up once the winds calmed.

Other Species

Snook, snapper, jacks, and barracuda.

Grand Slams

Congratulations to Matson Rogers for the first Grand Slam of the year!
