Week three saw an increased level of activity from the Mayan rain god Chac. Localized storms blew up all over the two bays, making for interesting daily reports. On the same day in the same bay, some anglers reported drenching conditions, while others found sun. Winds picked up and dropped again mid week, trending out of the North-North-East. Temps remained warm despite the wind direction.
Permit fishing was slower than the previous week, in both bays, but that doesn’t mean there weren’t some amazing memories made, some awesome fish brought to hand and some really cool shots at the big happy tailing variety that we all love best.
On the calm day midweek, some very large tarpon were found in the deeper channels, fish up to 150 pounds jumped, and up to 60 pounds landed. Snook still present and accounted for in good numbers. Santa Rosa fished well for tarpon and snook this week, and continues to maintain ideal water levels.
Young anglers Johnny and Alan D, 13 and 14 years old, respectively, back for their 3rd year in a row and raised with rods in their hands, never fail to impress: this next generation of anglers has spine-tingling promise. Alan managed a super grand slam, while Johnny and his dad double grand slammed on the same day together. Each landed multiple permit, big tarpon, bonefish, snook, and a terminal case of saltwater fly-fishing addiction, so very cool to see.
