Flats, Backcountry and Flamingo
Capt. Chris Jones reported lots of Tarpon along the Islamorada ocean side this week. Capt. Gary Rehm had a Bonefish trip on SUnday and reported seeing lots of Bones, but had difficulty getting a fish to eat a Shrimp. Capt. Dave Atkinson from Whale Harbor reported catching three Bonefish one trip last week. In the backcountry near Flamingo, one guide reported a Sawfish sighting! The endangered specie was in shallow water about five miles south of Flamingo. The sighting was reported to the Mote Marine Lab in Sarasota.
