WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING:
Happy anglers and plenty of tailing bonefish. Thirty to fifty bonefish a day have been the stories of the week. The fishery has experienced some ups and downs over the last month with the threat of tropical storms looming, which has created sporadic feeding, but when the bite has turned on, it has been prolific.
The permit bite continues, and the anglers have opportunities each day, with some large permit landed. A couple of permit over twenty pounds have been brought to the boat this week. The fish do not seem to have a huge preference this week and are eating both baits and fly.
This week’s weather overall has been good with a few days being super calm. The tarpon bite is staying strong, and we are even finding a few snook around while hunting for tarpon in the mangroves. As the weather cools down, the Snook will start showing themselves more often and will give that angler a chance at the super slam. Fall is on the way!
Barracuda, snapper, ladyfish, catfish, needlefish, and broad shad.
No Grand Slams this week.
