We did have a huge wind come from the West – it made for huge social media attention as giant waves interrupted Secret Beach. Currently, we have sunny skies and a nice  SE wind at about  3 km/hr – gust up to 10.

Action from our anglers out on the flats this week:

BONEFISH

There were so many bonefish in the rivers some guides never went out to the flats! Big bones coming on to the flats as water temps increased. Favorite fly this week: Christmas Island Special, orange, size 6. 

PERMIT

Great permit conditions this week with the falling tide. Permit landed around Rosario Caye and up in the Bacalar Chico Park area. Schools reacted to shrimp patterns being stripped quickly. Favorite fly this week: Peterson’s Spawning Shrimp size 4. 

TARPON

Tarpon were safe this week from our anglers as they were chasing bones and permit. 

OTHER SPECIES

Will and Eduardo went out to scout some water… 7 jacks on fly landed in doing so!
