June in the Keys

Had a great time in the lower keys this past week fishing with friends. We landed numerous Bonefish and Tarpon. On a couple days we had shots at slams, but the Permit would not permit it. The weather was beyond perfect with several slick calm days all day long, and the rest with no winds over 5 mph. The main attraction is Tarpon, but I'm addicted to bonefishing. If your heading to the lower keys and want a trip of a lifetime, give my friends at the Bahia Honda Sporting Club a shout. They have an amazing lodge and the guides are top notch.

Bahia Honda Sporting Club exclusively fly-fish for Tarpon in the Florida Keys





They are easy to spot, right?

Looks amazing bro, I saw allot of the same images on the water but, I wasn't able to capitalize. Too bad we missed each other.

Thanks for the ring btw

Good job Billy. I have taken my boat down there many times but haven't had as much luck fishing as you had. Probably doing it all wrong, and never had any locals with me. Thanks for the report.
