Week In Review

The wind was down but picked up a little. The fish became harder to find, but the bite was better. Generally, clear skies meant good visibility and a lot of shots at permit again. Some Guests hooked up with some migratory tarpon but didn't boat any this week. The Bonefish were consistent this week, with some boats well into double digits caught in a day. One super slam for Capt. Cesar and guest Danny!

What Guests were Catching


Good numbers of Bonefish (164) were landed, averaging 2 to 3 lbs, with several ranging from 3 to 6 lbs.

Photo of the Week

Targeting snook is always a fun pursuit. These ambush predators strike and fight hard and are especially fun on a fly rod. Dirk caught this nice snook when fishing with Capt. Kristian.
