Week in Review:
Fishing was excellent again this week, despite the strong winds. Permit are still being caught in good numbers, and the big migratory Tarpon are starting to show up! Chris & Vanessa R had a great week fishing with Capt. Emir. Vanessa had a Slam on day one, and they went on to have a double Slam the next day which included a double header on Permit ! This all on Vanessa's birthday.
