Week In Review

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.

What Guests were Catching

Bonefish

A good number of bones were caught with several  fish in the 4  Lb class.

Permit

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.

Tarpon

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.

Other Species

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).
