Week In Review

Sight fishing was tough with clouds and a few rain days, making it hard to see fish. That did not stop one angler from a Grand Slam, and a few others almost achieved it as well.  Bones were receptive and available regardless. Anglers had no trouble getting into them. Those seeking Permit had their work cut out for them, but three landed.  Tarpon available on the flats, and the back lagoon enticed and rewarded anglers. A good number landed, and more jumped as always the case.   Lots of smiles during the dock walk at the end of the day.

What Guests were Catching

Bonefish

The usual catch of bonefish by nearly every angler, every day has been going strong.

Permit

A few permit were taken on the fly this week, as well as a very large specimen taken on spinning gear.

Tarpon

The tarpon have been a little more cooperative on the flats as well as in the back lagoon. One angler took four in one morning in the back lagoon, and others were jumped and lost with a few landed on the flats.

Other Species

Snook, Snapper, Jacks, and Barracuda

Grand Slams

One grand slam to report with a 40lb tarpon, nice permit, and healthy bone. There were also a couple of near misses as well!
