Ross Fenn came from Australia to catch a tarpon, and that is just what he did. He actually jumped 15 from 60 - 200 lbs. Of those 15 hooked, he boated and released 8 tarpon. He also caught 1 tuna, and 4 jacks. The weather conditions were gorgeous during the 6 days of Mr. Fenn's visit and the ocean flat, the last day we had rainstorms in the afternoon, otherwise, blue skies, beautiful sunsets.

Ron Oswald, a many time repeat customer came to fish for 2 days. He wasn't able to get in the caribbean one of the days, but the other day, he fished the caribbean and hooked, boated and released 1 large tarpon weighing about 200 lbs. Randy Doolittle and Edward Larsen fished with us for 4 days. They jumped 23 tarpon between 90 - 170 lbs. Of the 23 jumped, they brought 6 to the boat for release. Frequent guests Bryan Saliba and Julia who enjoy backwater fishing as opposed to fighting big tarpon, caught 5 bluegill, 3 tiger, 5 viejito, 1 guavina, 6 sargentos, 28 mojaras, and 1 pinto. Pretty busy days of catching. Ray Waddell and Alicia jumped 3 tarpon, bringing 1 about 100 lbs to the boat for release. They also tired of the big catch, and went to the back waters where they caught 1 jack, 8 bluegills and 15 mojaras. NOW IS THE TIME FOR GREAT FISHING, come on down.

Mr. Eduardo Pellas of Managua, Nicaragua and his friends Roberto Riguero, Felipe Mantica, Javier Downing, Alejandro Athaand Ricardo Maduro fished with us for 3 days earlier this week. They encountered one morning of pretty heavy rain, but otherwise, weather was decent, and fishing wasn't bad. They say they would have caught more fish if the weather had just been more cooperative that one day! Roberto and Felipe jumped 11 tarpon between 80 - 180lbs. They brought 5 of the tarpon to the boat for release. They also caught 1 jack. Javier and Alejandro jumped 7 tarpon in the 90 lb. range, they got one to the boat. Ricardo and Eduardo jumped 7 between 140 to 160 lbs. They brought 2 tarpon and 2 barracuda to the boat for release. The next couple of months have historically been great tarpon fishing months, with some good snook catches as well. Check out previous years September and October fishing reports. They are not the only good months for tarpon, but they are at the top of the list!! Come try for yourself.
