Week In Review

This week was excellent again, with large numbers of Permit being seen. Tarpon were around in good numbers and quite aggressive. 10 fish were landed with several in the 60-80 Lb class.

Bonefish were once again around in big numbers. Most anglers this week caught a few bones and then went on to target Tarpon and Permit.

The highlight of the week was a double grand slam for Hunter R fishing with Cesar. His wife Kelsey, narrowly missed her slam with the Permit breaking the leader at the boat! Not to be outdone, she then went on to boat three good Tarpon that day! Josh fishing with Gordy also had a grand slam and took other Tarpon as well.
