Hot & Cold
Feb 23rd: As a result of sporadic backwash from the serious winter storms in the US, the weather has been rather mixed so far this month. On fair days, the catches have been great, but on the poor days – cold, overcast and windy – anglers have struggled to boat many bonefish.
Last week was typical of the unseasonably difficult month. There were some great catches early on, most notably a haul of 22 bonefish made by Joe Monro from the Isle of Mann & Andrew Bowden-Smith from Scotland. And they lost many more. Also, all nine members of the Bowden-Smith party did manage to catch their first ever bonefish.
Unfortunately, the weather then almost completely shut down fishing activity for nearly three days, with high winds and much lower than average temperatures, that at one point reached 14C or low 50s farenheit. Ugh!
This week, however, the weather is much improved and all boats are coming back from the Marls reporting success. Hopefully, normal service is now restored.
We are almost completely full in the Club for March, although there are still some gaps in the first week of April, especially in the week after Easter, and in the second half of May. So if you are planning a trip, do get in touch.
