When the weather behaves the fishing tends to improve too, and this week was no exception. Anglers lucked into a gorgeous weather week, with few clouds, light winds, and no precipitation. Snook were the big winners with good numbers of nice fish out of both bays, but there were some substantial permit and at least one very quality tarpon brought to hand as well. With the great light and wind conditions permit were seen and cast to daily but, typically, seemed to be on higher alert some days than others. Such is the nature of permit fishing: one day a thirty foot cast fools a twenty pounder and the next day false casts are the kiss of death and you can’t make a shot under seventy feet without spooking them. At Casa Blanca this week, Jacks were the main by-catch in fishing off the pier at night, providing plenty of after dinner entertainment; landing those pier fish is often a rodeo.
