FISHING REPORT: Weeks of September 20th - September 26th, 2015

Weather: Mostly Cloudy, some days with drizzle some days with rain all day.

Winds: Moderate winds for 0-10 mph out of the East but shifting as light winds do.

Air Temps: Highs were in high 780's to low 90's with lows in the mid to upper 70's.

Water Temperature: 81-82F. Barometric Pressure: 29.75- 29.91

Moon phase: The first quarter moon will be on the 21st. Sunrise: 5:40 am Sunset: 5:50 pm


Bonefish (Macabi); Isaac, Mark, Ari, Scott, John, John, Jefferson, Eric, Rich. Harvey, Ken, Branon, Josh, Ken, Richard Deborah, George, Stu, Ken, Coleman, all got the bonefish to do what they wanted. Some catches numbered in the 20's while other caught just a couple in a day. There were many first bonefish ever on a fly, which is a big step in anyone's saltwater flats career. We are blessed with a huge number of bonefish which we tend to take for granted.

Permit (Palometta): Our returning friend Robert had the only permit scored this week. Two of them to be exact as he took his time, waiting for the guide to say Ok, lets go; a perfect cast later, a fish was on. Repeat again! It sounds so easy to be cool in front of a permit; but the reality is that it makes grown men and women so nervous that we rush it, which never seems to work.

Tarpon (Sabalo): The family Dozier were tarpon machines as they all produced at least one tarpon each. John Sr., John Jr., Jefferson and Uncle Scott seemed to have the tarpon's number despite the nasty rainy weather. Robert ( of permit fame above, landed 2 tarpon on his last day out on the water. Ari added three more tarpon this week, but his real claim to fame was the super grand slam of last week. One of our day fishing guests Kent landed 4 tarpon in 2 days of fishing. Branon & Josh landed a tarpon apiece after working it for several days getting more and more determined, then the next day they got 3 tarpon to the boat. Isaac made the best of his only day on the water with a sweet tarpon ( every tarpon is pretty sweet, right?) Harvey capped his week with a ninth inning tarpon to make it all worth while! Coleman has been working the tarpon on a fly thing for years and I am so happy that his quest became reality

Grand Slam: No slams this week... I am betting on next week!

Other Species: Jacks, Barracudas, Snappers, Ladyfish, Snook

Flies that worked:
