We had a solid week of catching Tarpon and Permit. This was despite some strong wind that made casting a challenge. Scott got one Tarpon 120 pounds, which was the largest of the week. Ted landed a 60-pound fish to complete his slam. Not to be outdone, Michael also completed a slam on landing a good tarpon. He ended the week as top rod when he caught his second good-sized permit.
What guests were catching
More than 275 bones were landed for the week; most were in the 2-4 pound range.
10 Permit landed. Most were between 5-10 pounds, but two were in the 20-pound range.
19 Tarpon were landed. Most were juvenile fish under 30 Lbs, but we did have several big Tarpon between 60-120 pounds.
Rounding out the week, anglers landed some Jacks, snapper, a small shark, as well as Barracuda.
Two grand slams for the week. Congratulations to Michael and Ted.
