Everyone had a great 10 days. Lots of good sized bones ( they are quite a bit larger in the fall vs the spring there) up to 8-9 pounds, with most at 3-4 lbs. One monster well over 10lbs swam through Tim's legs. One permit on...then off, several others sighted. Terry had a bunch tailing with in a few feet of him. One tailed on his crab and later one chased a clouser, but no luck. Two big tarpon sighted and three babies in one of the creeks. Weather was calm and clear every day. Had a school of a couple thousand bones ( really!) at Fish Cay that were getting hammer by cudas and sharks that we walked away from. The southern creeks were full of tailers every day, with lots of fish in the mangroves and many, many lost flies. The lodges were not open, so we fished the fingers around Snug Corner a bit and found a bunch of fish. The road rebuilding has sort of begun...the contract signed, and some brush being cleared from the shoulders. We shall see.
