What awesome conditions this morning and we took advantage of every second. First time fly fishing for bonefish, Adam was armed with my 8wt and his wife Meagan was cheering him on. We had a decent number of shots in the morning and then decided to get Meagan busy bending some rods. I located a school of pilchards, threw the cast net a few times and with the live well blacked out we hit a few spots I had a good feeling about. Well, with a live well full of pilchards, most spots give me a good feeling. Live chumming we had the grouper and mutton snapper going crazy with Meagan and Adam staying busy landing groupers and an assortment of species. Twice Meagan hooked monster grouper that burned up the drag and broke her off on structure. Then the schools of big mutton snappers would move in changing the color of the water and sky rocketing out of the water crushing the live chum. A few well placed casts had Adam hooked up and hearing the drag sizzle. What an awesome morning!
