1/1/18 January Islamorada Bonefish Fishing New Years Day

Well Capt. Richard Stanczyk Sr. got out with Rich Hastings of Bud n’ Mary’s for a little late afternoon bonefish session.  We’ve had a mild front hit the last few days though temperatures had warmed back up slightly to the low 70s (water temps) anyways.  This afternoon it was slick calm too with a radiating warmth before another much colder front hits us Wednesday night.  The boys managed 3 bonefish stake up fishing on the flats to ring in the new year the right way!  Fishing for bonefish with shrimp did the trick, laying baits on the flats in known ‘lanes’ that bonefish cruise in.  Winter time can still be productive for the grey ghost, though it will always be best when the water temps are above 70 degrees.  Give me a call if you are interested in trying your hand at catching a bonefish in islamorada!
