The fishing has been excellent the last two weeks not so many takes but a lots of fish sight bonefish, tarpon, permit and snook.

We had some very nice days with 6-7 snook in the 4 to 15 lb range sight in shallow mud.
Some 7 lb and 5 lb had been landed.
The baby tarpon fishing is now excellent at low tide in mangroves. As we go futher in the hottest months big tarpons coming from the deep will arrive on the mangrove and mangrove flats on june july august and september.
We average 25 shots at sighted bones each days and the permit fishing is really great with good biters and at least 20 decent shots by day at tailers on the permit flats.
The week of the Super grand Slam we sight while wading an huge permit more than 45 lb and Dave had he great shot at him, both of us new he seen the flie as he turned on it when it hit the water.

On my side since the Super Grand Slam in end of April I caught 2 permits from a hungry bonefish school. Those fish once hooked are such great fighters.

Tight lines, hope to see you on my bow for intense fishing action. Don't miss the greatest months even if fishing is excellent year around.
