Hello friends!Its been a while since our last fishing report due in part to the sea conditions and also to the fact that I have been away working in the Canadian Arctic... but that's another story!   While I was away freezing in the tundra,  my dear friends Kathy & Rob of British Columbia,  Canada were down with Larry & Loralei and in my absence I arranged for them to go out for a day of Tarpon fishing with my friend Vincy aboard the "Linsey"After departing the dock at Cieneguita, the group was quickly in the zone, the fishfinder showed a lot of activity in the area and it wasn't long before Vincey had them on the tarpon.  Larry's first one got away, but he managed to land his second, a respectable 65 pounder which was his largest catch to date...but the day was far from over.  Next up, Loralei hit an even bigger one and after nearly an hour long battle it too escaped.With six lines in the water,  it seemed that Larry was the chosen one with several solid bites,  but no-hook ups.Around noon the wind kicked up and the fishing cooled off for about an hour until once again Larry broke the drought and brought his second tarpon of the day alongside this one broke his previous albeit short lived record.  The action for Rob was slow although he did have one short fight which again resulted in the escape of his prize, but being the determined type of man that I know him to be, Rob was not going back to Canada empty handed!  Persistence paid off and he finally got the chance to catch and bring in a beautiful silver king of his own.If you're keping score the tally was 3 catches, 2 escapes, and multiple bites that included a small blacktip shark.  Overall a respectable day of fishing despite some challenges but this group of adventurous Canadians did a stellar job .  My sincere appreciation to Captain Vincey and Allan (who provided the boat) for showing these folks what tarpon fishing in the Caribbean is all about.  To Kathy, Rob, Loralei and Larry, I hope to be around next time you are visiting so we can do it again.
