WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:

BONEFISH (Macabi): A tough week of fishing with strong winds and muddy waters. Every day the anglers we able to boat a few bones though. The bonefish are hungry, so when the weather settles, they are eating heavily. Next week forecast is for lighter winds and sunny skies. Can’t wait.

PERMIT (Palometta): Permit fishing can be tough no matter what the weather brings. Only a few permit were caught this week. Michael C and Michael T and Steve all managed to catch some with Michael T. and his brother, Matthew landing three in one day. Job well done!!

TARPON (Sabalo): Lots of Tarpon around this week even though the winds made it challenging. Michael T. got it done on his way to a grand slam. Dick managed to stick four in one day but unfortunately none to the boat. Nice to know there hungry!

OTHER SPECIES: Snapper, Ladyfish, Barracuda, Snook, Jacks and Grunts.

GRAND SLAM: Congratulations to Michael T. on his Grand Slam.
