I didn’t even roll out of bed until 9am. I was sore from fishing hard the day before. I decided to go out for a quick kayak trip. The bonefishing was on fire. I quickly caught two small ones right off the bat. I continued to see a few. Then I saw a tailing permit…I got about 4 shots at him and never spooked him. He was completely uninterested in my bonefish fly. I sat down real quick to retie a permit fly on. As soon as I looked up to look for the permit again here comes a school of huge bonefish….the lead fish were all 10+ no doubt in my mind. They spooked a little but didn’t really know where to go. I ended up getting the fly in the zone and one of the smallest out of the school ate they fly…he wasn’t small at all though…still a very solid fish but small in comparison to some of the others he was little. I fished a little more but mainly just relaxed and enjoyed the moment. I was satisfied so I eased back home. My first two trips back on the kayak has resulted in 20 redfish and 3 bonefish…all on fly!
The future looks bright for these guys!
