Week In Review

Overall, it was a great week on the water.  Lots of opportunities and plenty of fish brought to hand for our anglers. The weather this month has been great. We did have a storm that passed early in the week but moved through quickly, opening back up to sunny skies and lighter winds. All anglers enjoyed hooking and landing bonefish. Some had record number days beating their previous top bonefish days.

What Guests were Catching

Bonefish

Excellent week for numbers of Bonefish on the fly with the high boat for the week, having landed 25 between two anglers.  

Permit

This week provided great permit fishing. For those that targeted permit, the fish were receptive. In total, 11 permit were landed by guests.

Tarpon

Light winds and clear water provided great opportunities for juvenile and resident tarpon. Baby tarpon were found in the mangroves and back lagoons. During the tidal shift in the AM guides were able to provide anglers with good opportunities. Resident tarpon were found throughout the fishery and responded to well placed flies. There were a few migratory jumped, and one landed.


The number of migratory fish available is still good, but the numbers are certainly dropping as the season begins to come to a close.
