Capt. Richard Stanczyk Sr. got out again with Rich Hastings and Capt. Vic Gaspeny for some afternoon bonefish fishing sessions. Last night they boated 6 bonefish along the atlantic side of Islamorada, late in the afternoon all the way until dark. Capt. Stanczyk said with the ‘super full moon’ there was more light later into the evening, and the bones were responding. This particular spot is a higher, incoming tide spot, and it produced well. Tonight the team got out again, this time however fishing the bayside of Islamorada. Some of the strip bank flats in the bay can produce larger bonefish, and many of those areas have been much livelier in recent years. They caught 2 bonefish tonight, and had a fun time doing it. Good size fish too, with several in the 5 to 8 lb range. Looks like we are getting a blast of cold weather finally this weekend, so that might put a slow down on the bones. Though pre-frontal could be very, very good, which will be Friday. If the team gets out, i’ll let you know, or if you are interested in going give me a shout!
Capt. Richard Stanczyk Sr. got out with friend and fellow Capt. Vic Gaspeny and friend Daryl Pruett for an afternoon bonefish session. The december bonefish in islamorada can be hit or miss. But with the very warm weather right now conditions have been ripe. They fished the afternoon late incoming tide until sunset. The bonefish flats of islamorada on the alantic ocean side have been looking very good as of late. The grass is returning to many of them with the better water quality we’ve been experiencing. Fishing was red hot and they landed 6 bonefish in total. This was all accomplished by ‘dead boat’ fishing, where they cast shrimp out and let ’em sit. Bonefish cruise by and smell the shrimp scent, and then soon find the bait and it’s off to the races. A bonefish can strip off 100 yard of line in a hurry, so they are always a fun battle. If things stay warm which it looks like they will for a little longer at least, this fishing may continue to stay hot. Give me a shout and we can get you put on ’em!
