Action from our anglers out on the flats this week:

BONEFISH

Stacey is here this week for her Bonefish Intensive Trip! She has landed several bones each day out there with Capt. Eduardo in spite of the wind! She is now a double haul wizard! Blessings come in disguises. 

PERMIT

Capt. Eduardo reported shots to permit in the south bays but wouldn’t commit to the fly. Ahhhhh! But then…. Bill and Donny returned this year to fish with us. They went out with Capt. Nestor the first day and landed a nice fish. They went out the second day with Capt.  Alex and had some nice shots and big fun. 

TARPON

Jim went out with Capt. Aroldo and had a great day. He brought his new tarpon rod that he just built for the trip. It is a beauty! He had shots and follows, and he was thrilled. 

OTHER SPECIES

Snook, snapper, jacks, and barracuda.
