Good weather overall, winds of varying strengths out of the South East as is usual this time of year. Permit counts are still down as compared with the exceptional numbers during February and March, we attribute this to spawning activities. As opposed to last year when the bulk of spawning activity took place in March, April seems to be the big month this year. Two permit brought to hand this week. For the rest of the species fishing was excellent, bonefish plentiful and willing as always. The extreme low tide trend has started to reverse and the backcountry fishing for snook and tarpon was above par. Temperatures have been soaring well into the nineties daily which is great for fish activity, but especially back in the mangroves the heat is compounded and it can be intense for anglers and guides alike, staying hydrated is key. Here’s the lovely Leslie R showing off a textbook tarpon hold.
