They're back! In mid March the first doctor flies show up. They have a nasty bite. Wade pants and knee high socks are strongly recommended. Do not wear shorts while fishing the flats. Click Here for more info and page down.
A 50 fish day between a couple anglers is rare. A single angler catching 50 fish has never happened at Mars Bay. Gene Furgeson landed 50 fish in one day. His hand was cramped and he had enough at 48 but the guide talked him into catching a couple more to make it an even 50. That's not counting the 15 that broke off and a few the sharks took. The fish pictured on top is Gene's largest at 10+ lbs.
Pictured below Gene...Mike DePaulo caught this ten pounder in Mid March. The fish took five runs and twenty minutes to land.
The lodge was booked solid for the 2015 spring season by last November. Regrettably several fishermen that have been coming for years waited until too late to book. Don't wait until the last minute to make your arrangements. The 2015 fall season is half full. Fall is the best time of the year to fish for bones. The summer heat passed, it's before the winter frontal patterns kick in, and the fish have had all summer to get stupid. There are still slots open.
