DANG!!! Don't know what else to say! My morning started with regular local client Alec on the bow on the hunt for bonefish, tarpon and permit under absolutely slick calm perfect conditions. We targeted bonefish first and there were tons of schools moving through, tailing, waking and getting us all excited. After quite a few shots Alec was starting to feel the tension of this super tough game we play on the flats. However, he's a seasoned veteran and has caught plenty of bonefish with me before so he kept his head in the game. Another school moves in, big tailing and waking fish and I pole him into position but they disappear but I can see their subtle movements. I tell Alec where to cast, he makes a perfect cast and moments later he's on. Boy is he on! The bonefish starts punishing the drag as I poled like a mad man after it until he ended his initial run of over 50 yards. When we finally got him to the boat and into the landing net we realized he was about 14lbs, 14 POUNDS! Definitely a career fish for me as a guide and the fish of a lifetime for Alec. The rest of the trip we focused on permit and tarpon having shots at both but never connecting. Wow, I will sleep in giant bonefish glory tonight!
