Anglers endured very adverse conditions at Casa and Playa Blanca this past week. Clouds and heavy rain showers marred the first several days of fishing. Winds were light and out of the NE. By Thursday a strong Northern front moved through the area and the sun made its first appearance for the week. Anglers were able to take advantage of two days of sunny weather to salvage what was a difficult affair.
Given the conditions, anglers had a difficult time targeting permit at the beginning of the week and very few were seen. Excellent bonefishing throughout the bays helped keep anglers and guides busy. With the last two days of sunshine, anglers had several chances at permit and a few were lucky enough to land them.
Heavy rain brought an ample amount of freshwater into the backcountry mangrove lagoons. Water remains milky and high in these lagoons. Tarpon and snook fishing was solid this week despite conditions. The guides were able to find plenty to keep anglers happy.
