This was a much better weather week at the lodge with us finally shaking off the effects of the two Hurricanes which battered our southern neighbors. Fortunately, we only experienced huge rain. The Tarpon are very active, and really big numbers of Permit are being seen all over. We look forward to another bumper week ahead.
A good number of bones were caught with several fish in the 4 Lb class.
Two permit were taken this week. Fish were all over in good numbers but very difficult to hook. They ranged between 10 and 20 Lbs. Vanessa R fishing with Capt. Emir caught a beautiful 20 Lb fish.
23 Tarpon were taken this week ranging between 5 and 70 Lbs. This was an excellent week for Tarpon!! Jason M fishing with Capt. Gordy were successful in boating some really good fish, the biggest a beautiful specimen of 70 Lbs.
A few Snapper were caught. Several large Jacks were also taken.
No slams this week. One guest got a trip slam (each species during the week).
