Los Roques Photos

Another great trip to Los Roques! Great, stable January weather, gourmet food prepared by chef Mimo, and a great job done by Sightcast Outfitters owner Chris and his team of guides. We saw lots of bones and caught many bonefish on the surface, using floating minnow imitations. These imitate sardinas that have been wounded by diving pelicans, and the bones key in on this bait and readily take flies on the surface.

We had some shots at tarpon, but not in the numbers we saw last year. We had some good shots at permit too! There are some areas where permit frequent, and in a few hours of looking had four decent shots at big permit--one pushing forty lbs.

We caught plenty of 2-5 lb jacks that were crashing bait along the beaches, and even on some of the flats.

when the pelicans dive into the water, the bones come to the surface right next to them, looking for leftovers!
