Summer is upon us and the fish are biting everywhere. Thanks to everyone for a great season, it’s been One of the Best. Calvin and Jim are leaving for the Keys and a few days pursuing bonefish and, hopefully, permit. They jumped eighteen tarpon over five days and a similar number of snook. The tarpon were “June sized”, five to fifty five pounds. We caught a few reds and a tripletail as well. We tried for some sharks. My friends are dragging me off to the East Coast for some bonefish and permit adventures. Thanks Alan, Doug, Bruce, Calvin, Jim, George Saxon, Bill Blanton, The Missouri Boys Bill and Greg, Bob Patrick, Sean Crothers, Jeff Wyman. Thank you.

We’re still after tarpon with fly rods. Today was the first lull in the (moderate) action in days. Baitfish were noticeably absent today along with most gamefish, tarpon included. There is a windy high pressure system dominating with south winds ten to fifteen. We did get two this morning, before the wind came up. Calvin and Jim Fuller on the foredeck landing four out of seven in two days of tarpon hunting in the Islands.

Six up, in two days. The Missouri Boys. Sleepers on fly. There are good numbers of tarpon in the Islands right now but we could use a break from the rain and thunderstorms.
