We had some good days with low wind that were rewarded with a good time on the flats. Wind was blowing from the east & dropping down from 10-20 kts to 10-15 kts throughout the week. Grand slams are harder to get but our guests had some opportunities on the slam and were able to make 2 grand slams this week. They also managed to hook into 100lb+ tarpon but sadly they did not land any this week. We also had several other smaller tarpons landed they were 20lb up to 70lb. Permits were landed and many Bonefish, lots of other species like jacks, snappers and barracudas were also caught. It was a great week for everyone.
