struggling a bit

although we did have a great morning of tarpon fishing yesterday, getting bites from two very large fish only to lose them after plenty of air time and good battles, fishing in general has been a little tough. I think that I like the week before the full moon much better than the week after the full moon. Even the afternoon drum fishing has been a little lack-luster, averaging 2 or 3 big drum per afternoon.

Fishing for cow-nosed sting rays on the other hand has been excellent. Capt. Brian and I had a 2 boat trip on Friday, we landed over 100 rays.......

In Costa Rica, Capt. James says the fishing is picking up on the Dragin Fly, 6 sails yesterday and a nice black marlin the day before.
