TARPON (Sabalo): What has been up with the tarpon lately? Tons of tarpon around but not a lot of them were very hungry. John W, Isa, Jim, Michael and Landon however did manage to bring some to the boat. Early start to the day seems to pay when it comes to the tarpon these days.

The bonefish responded to the calmer weather and are feeding heavily. A little rain overnight always helps to cool things down and brings us some pleasant mornings and active bones.

PERMIT (Palometta): Several permit hooked this week, but as is often the case, not as many landed. As experienced anglers know, permit don’t come easy! However, Mike beat the odds and managed to get one to the boat. It’s only a matter of time until your permit hunting finally pays off. Keep at it and enjoy the hunt.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Light winds at the beginning of the week with strong winds ending the week. The fish are always hungry ahead of a storm and this week was not different. All the fish were eating including the tarpon and permit. Most of our guests landed bonefish with some of them bringing large bones to the boat.

PERMIT (Palometta): The Permit were also very receptive and eating heavily until the high winds forced them into deep water. Many of our lucky anglers managed to hook into them earlier in the week; but they are always playing hard to get. Sarah from Montana got it done and so did Sue, Jim, Zeb, Michelle, Diane and Peter. Great work!

TARPON (Sabalo): Twelve tarpon landed this week with several over seventy pounds. Persistence pays off when it comes to tarpon fishing. Lots and lots of shots over the last month with minimal eats until this week. It won’t be long until the big boys of summer show up. Get your big gear ready and join us for the one hundred + pounders coming into our waters soon.

Bill B and John T also had a blast catching lots of bones as well. Francisco from San Salvador joined the fun and landed quite a few even though his stay was short.

PERMIT (Palometta): When you present a fresh crab to a permit it is hard for them to say no. Lots of folks landing permit during the tournament with some of the anglers bringing in some big boys.

FISHING REPORT

Weeks of May 8 thru May 14, 2017

Weather Conditions: A couple of overnight showers, mainly sunny.

Winds: Strong winds to start the week ending with lighter winds.

Air Temperature: 87 to 90 degrees with lows in the low 80’s.

Water Temperature: Temp: 84 F. degrees

Sunrise: 5:21 am Sunset: 6:17 pm

Moonphase: Second Quarter.

WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): Another awesome week of bonefishing with the Baton Rouge group. Alex and Bailey put together a fun group of fishermen and women to try their hand at bonefishing. Everybody had a great time and caught plenty of bonefish. The weather was beautiful and the fish were hungry. Belize is the perfect spot for the beginning bonefish angler. Come give it a try!

PERMIT (Palometta): It is always a good day when you are fishing. This week, with the nice weather was no exception and our anglers landed eight Permit. Our fishery is so abundant with those hard to catch, crazy, unpredictable, nutty, wonderful Permit. There is a reason a t-shirt is sold that says “Why I didn’t catch a permit today”. Hard to catch, but fun to hunt.

TARPON (Sabalo): The big boys of summer are close by and headed our way. Sightings of some very large Tarpon are becoming a daily occurrence. Our Tarpon anglers and guides are willing to wake up early to chase those monsters. Just like the Permit, the Tarpon can play hard to get, but hooking in to a fish that is over one hundred pounds is quite the experience and something every saltwater angler must try.

OTHER SPECIES: Jacks, barracuda, and snapper.

GRAND SLAM: Congratulations to Kevin D. on his GRAND SLAM!

FLIES THAT WORKED

FOR BONEFISH - Always Christmas Island Specials and tan squimp.

Lots of bonefish and plenty of laughter as we all had a wonderful time getting to know one another. Family and friends are what lodge life is all about; and everyone walked away with new friends and big smiles. Always a treat seeing new faces!

PERMIT (Palometta): The permit fishing is very active these days and all the anglers are getting daily chances. Some of our lucky anglers landed permit on their way to grand slams. It never ceases to amaze me when that beginning angler lands a permit, while others try for years before the keepers of the permit let them in.

TARPON (Sabalo): Tarpon galore, around this week. Anglers were seeing multiple schools and getting lots of chances to connect. The early bird gets the worm and our tarpon anglers are always rising early to catch the morning rollers. Hunter, Rick, Stephen, Tim and Kevin managed to land tarpon.
