Justin and Cory from Tightline Outfitters in Dillon, Mt. and some of their friends from Nashville were here on their first bonefishing trip last week. They were guided by Herman Bain, Tommy Kee and Bonefish Bradley. First couple days were good with everybody getting several hookups. They ranged in location from the North Bight and the west side to Bowen Sound, Young Sound and Fresh Creek. Last couple days were tough with lots of wind and clouds. Even with that they found fish.
The other night I went with Justin and Cory to the government dock looking for tarpon. The tide was right but there were not many shrimp coming down the creek for some reason. They were blind casting into the channel anyway in hopes of a hookup. I was with Cory when all of a sudden Justin screamed. I looked over and this big tarpon was coming right on his fly. In his excitement, he did the cuda strip and took the fly right away from . I yelled to slow strip but it was too late and the tarpon was gone. Next couple evenings we tried again but saw no more tarpons mon.
I have a couple good pics of the boys with big cuda and bonefish but can’t load them for some reason. Will get them on later. This was their first bonefish experience and definitely not the last.
