Some large tarpon were caught early in the week, and the sun has fired the permit fishing. We didn't focus on bonefish much this week, but it was excellent fishing when we did. The cloud cover had a lot of big bonefish up tailing in the lagoons, and fishing them from a canoe was super. Some snook were caught this week in the lagoons, the flats, and from nearby docks. Gary caught a tarpon well over a hundred pounds – his biggest tarpon to date.
The real story this week was slams. Phil R had a spin slam, way to go!! John F had a Grand Slam. Then John got another Grand Slam! That is a great trip, John! Gary and Brent both got Grand Slams on the same day! With extra permit for good measure. So indeed a special week for the Grand Slams!
More than 233 Bonefish were landed, averaging 2 to 3 lbs, several ranging from 3 to 6 lbs.
Eight for the week.
15 Tarpon landed.
Five for the week!
