WHAT GUESTS WERE CATCHING

Bonefish (Macabi): Always great fishing after a storm. All species are feeding well this week and all are around in large numbers. Some nice bonefish landed by the tournament anglers last week, and this continues as the weather remains pleasant.

Permit (Palometta): Permit around in large numbers. Each of our permit anglers are getting multiple shots during the day and most have been successful landing the elusive permit. First time anglers are often the most successful. Funny how it works that way for the first time permit anglers!

Tarpon (Sabalo): Adam M is here tagging tarpon this week in an effort to gain a better understanding of the movements of our migratory populations of tarpon. We are using satellite tags which will hopefully give us the information we need to continue the protection efforts of this fish we all love to catch. We still know so little about the migration patterns of our tarpon. Come join us next year and be part of the science. Thank you for all your efforts Adam!!

Other Species: Needlefish, Barracuda, Snapper, Cobia

Grand Slams: No grand slams

Flies that worked:
Bonefish - Christmas Island Specials in orange and pink size 6 & 8, Squimp and Mantis shrimp
Permit - Peterson Shrimp and using crabs in tan and olive
Tarpon - Lots of colors this week in toads and bunnies, black on black, red on black, tan and olive are all great colors.

The week in review: Busy week preparing for the tropical storm but no damage, no wind very little rain and great fishing as it turns out.
