This week started with two days of very light winds out of the North and excellent sun, making for glassy water and smooth boat rides. As the week progressed, winds strengthened and blew from the Northeast, bringing some scattered clouds into the mix.
The nights were exceptionally bright leading up to the full moon on the fourth and tides got progressively lower with each new day.
Permit fishing this week reflected fewer shots than the norm despite the good visibility, but fish were still found and caught, two of them firsts. Other highlights included two grand slams and one super grand slam.
Tarpon and Snook fishing was solid in the bays as well as the backcountry lagoons. Water in the backcountry continues to be high and off color. With good sun anglers reported seeing plenty of both, but with clouds fishing for tarpon and snook was challenging. Those targeting bonefish consistently found success throughout the bays.
