Bonefish (Macabi): Bonefish did their best to uphold their reputation as a guaranteed catch here at El Pescador. Of the dozen anglers that went out all of them succeeded with bonefish; with many first ever bonefish coming to the hands of our guests. No big bones this week but one boat did report 23 fish one day. They found a large school that kept cooperating.

Permit (Palometta): Our sole permit award went to Scott G. who angled his way to his first permit that turned out to be the only one of the week!

Tarpon (Sabalo): The Tarpon fishermen/women faired a little better with Chris Z and his family getting into the tarpon action, Mark landed a Silver King, and Cody followed suit with a fun fight with a tarpon. There were many other encounters with these great fish but no others resulted in landed fish.
