Anglers continued to have plenty of shots this week with a lot of good eats and tarpon coming unbuttoned on the first or second jump. El Pescador advises anglers to practice strip setting and putting away the trout set before venturing out. In all, it was a great week for permit and the tarpon seem to be more willing to be fed flies!
Bonefish for in ample supply as usual with nearly every angler catching anywhere from one to a dozen. A couple of fish in the 23" range were caught this week as well.
About 8 permit were taken last week, including one nice fish approaching 20-25 lbs.
A few larger tarpon were jumped and one in the 40 lb range landed, along with quite a few smaller tarpon in the 5-20 lb range.
Snook, Snapper, Jacks, and Barracuda
One grand slam to report and one near miss that technically might have qualified if the angler had known that once leadered, it could count as a caught fish.
