Week In Review

We had a great week of fishing. The winds settled into the perfect permit wind and our anglers took advantage of it. We had anglers set personal bests for most permit in a day, first permit ever, and largest permit.

We also had good tarpon fishing, which led to Grand Slams! Captain Dayan double slammed on his boat one day with a father son duo, and Captain Jeo put Fletch on Grand Slams two different days. It was a great week all around!

What Guests were Catching


The fishing for bones was excellent again this week with over 226 landed.


Good fishing for Permit with 13 for the week.


Tarpon were active again and 13 were landed. For every fish landed quite a few don't make it to hand.

Other Species

Some Barracuda, Jacks, and Snapper were landed.

Grand Slams

Five for the Week! The willingness of Permit and Tarpon to bite is what led to this great number of Slams for our guests.
