WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING

Bonefish (Macabi): A beautiful week. Light winds most days and lots of hungry fish even some big fish around. Peter caught a 26" bonefish which is a super nice fish for these parts. The bonefish really like the calmer weather and are feeding heavily. A little rain overnight always helps to cool things down and brings us some nice mornings and active bones.

Permit (Palometta): Several Permit hooked this week but as is often the case, not as many landed. As everyone knows, Permit don't come easy! However Mike did manage 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.

Tarpon (Sabalo): Great two weeks of tarpon fishing for the boys from Germany. They all joined in the fun and landed several large tarpon each - always raring to go by 4am. Joseph and Barry also landed some nice ones with several other folks jumping a few.

Other Species: Jacks, Needlefish, Barracuda, Snapper, Ladyfish, Squirrelfish and a host of others our fly and spin fishing anglers found.

Grand Slam: No Grand Slams this week.

Flies that worked:
Bonefish - Always Christmas Island Specials, Mantis shrimp in tan, Gotchas
Permit - Avalon, Peterson Shrimp and Bauer crabs
Tarpon - White Toads and Bunnies and Black Death work well

The week in review: What a nice week with so many new friends from around the world. We hope that everyone made it home safely and we look forward to next time.
