We were virtually unaffected by hurricane Irma that passed 150 miles to the south. Naturally the storm killed tourism and forced a lot of cancellations post the storm. Fear of the possibility of "more to come" mostly generated by the media had many people trying to hold off their plans in October.
In short-we lost many days/trips over this time period-some justified-some not. For those who continued with their trips-we produced the GiantTarpon on nearly every trip.
The best fishing of the year is going on right now and will last-at minimum for the giants-at least another month.
Here is a video and some still shots taken last Sunday. There is pleny of hotel space available. The mornings have cooled off considerable. The hours of light to dark are noticeable decreasing. This all triggers the tarpon to stage and gorge.
Inshore the redfish have been everywhere. I am able to still produce big livebaits for those looking for trophy snook.
