It was a great week for anglers this past week, most of the anglers were up from 5 am to go hunt for those 75-100lbs tarpons. Most of the anglers caught tarpon between 40-60 lbs, they had a lot of tarpon jumping. We had other anglers that hooked and landed permits and bonefish. We had one guest that got a grand slam.

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, and lots of other species like jacks, snappers, and barracudas were also caught. It was a great week for everyone.
