This was a relatively slow week, with the weather playing a big part. Cloudy days made it difficult to spot fish, and the wind added to our woes. Permit were seen everywhere but refused flies and were extremely difficult to hook. Young Marshall S landed a beautiful Permit of 20 lbs using a live crab, and his Dad Josh broke one off. The Snook bite is on.
Very good numbers of bones were caught with several fish in the 2 to 3 Lb. class.
Landed one Permit of 20 lbs.
Four Tarpon landed this week, ranging between 5 and 10 Lbs. The Tarpon were difficult to hook.
Some good Snook were landed with a fish of 15 Lbs by Matt S fishing with Capt. Cesar. Anglers also landed several nice Jacks. Jacks are all over the flats at the moment and very willing to take flies.
No Grand Slams were recorded.
