12/5/17 December Bonefish on the Islamorada Flats

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!
