What a great time to be a guide in So. Florida.
It's hard to go wrong. The Bonefish bite has been great on the
outside of Biscayne Bay this past week. Monday we fished with Ron Sprague
and caught bonefish as large as 9 1/2 lbs.
This was a nice 6 pounder that we took time to stop and
photograph. They were schooling in nice numbers, and that
made them easier for the flyrod. Small crab's and gotcha's
worked well, colored the same as the bottom.
The Tarpon were still moving south in packs of up to 20, but the
fish are getting heavier. We Jumped two fish in the 120 pound class
on traditional yellow fly's. Most fish we saw were at least 90 lbs.
and up. Getting out before dawn is best to take advantage of cooler
water temps. The added benefit of a great sunrise on the flats is as
good as the fishing.
The Permit are also on the prowl up on the flats edges. You don't
stand a better chance of that SLAM you've always dreamed of
than now. So get on out there and don't forget to submit your
slam to the MET for a Citation.
We'll see you on the flats! ~ Capt. Dave Sutton
