May Days

Report Date: May 10, 2006

May has shown again to be the most consistent weather month of the year. Water temps are in the 80 degree range and holding. Winds are light and the fishing is good. Every morning starts with a couple of hours of tarpon fishing as they are still a short run away.
On May 8 Peter Orr of the Atlanta Braves fought a tarpon of about 150 lbs for close to two hours only to loose it when the fish made a huge last jump next to the boat.

Hooking a couple of fish each AM seem about right. Permit are showing on regular basis now that water temps are just right. This will only get better. Bonefish continue to impress clients that have never fished here.

Seeing schools of 8-10 lb fish gets the most veteran angler excited. The big singles, fish over 10 lbs are still the most wary. Large crab patterns still work the best for the big boys. On the "fun fish" side there are still lots of pompano, jacks, and spanish mackerel in the channels. On occasion we'll catch small bonefish as well.
