Week In Review

We had some excellent fishing!   Good numbers of Tarpon, some great permit, and even a few snook. The bonefishing was particularly good this week, and we did more wading than usual.

We had a great group celebrating a 40th birthday with 20 people. We also had a handful of our regular, super guests around, so it was a good week at the lodge. Jim got his 3rd Grand Slam – he will end up with his own board in the bar at this rate!

What Guests were Catching


Bonefish (Macabi) More than 230 Bonefish landed, averaging 2 to 3 lbs, ranging from 3 to 6 lbs.


Nine for the week. Nice!


107 Tarpon landed. Whoa!
