Casa and Playa Blanca Lodges Fishing Report Feb 18-25

6:16 am , February 27, 2017 0

An interesting week with regards to weather and fishing both, in a good way, with multiple permit caught in both bays, some impressive snook and above average bonefish. We started out with 15-20 mph winds from the South-East that helped get the kinks out of casting in a hurry, followed by a shift from that rarest of directions, the north-west, and even at times the west-north west. This left our reef adjacent coastline calm and clear, and the fish certainly showed up: tarpon, jacks, permit and bonefish. Honored as always to host the Annual Frank Osha Fishing Tournament at Casa Blanca, and there were some record catches this year: Anglers John and Talina with guide David caught a record 8 permit in one day as well as a grand slam, and first time ever angler MaryBeth H had the largest bonefish of the group, easily 5 pounds, with guide Pato. Stonefly Inn’s hosted couples week at Playa was a success as well, with all species caught. Tarpon remain the least consistent fish this year, but some quality fish were seen and enticed even so. Winds shifted back out of the South East to finish the week and temps started climbing, it’s really starting to feel like Spring.
