Tiamo Resort has reopened. With new owners and a upgraded facility, including a new pool and A/C, they are getting great reports.
• One angler caught over 30 fish in a day on an unnamed, and probably never fished flat on the fabled West side.
• Over 20 guests new to bonefishing have caught their first bonefish, and most of them have caught the bug and are returning!
• The average daily catch for a reasonably competent angler appears to be between 8 and 12 and up to 7lbs, but we have landed many over 10lbs and lost a few more!
• Blue water fishing has seen several Wahoo caught up to 80lbs, tuna, grouper, mahi mahi, barrucuda and kingfish.
Our fun fishing trips arranged every other day into the deep water of the Tongue of the Ocean, just under 3 miles from the resort, has created much amusement and hilarity with serious arguments about the amount of skill needed to flick the switch that operates the electric reels. Skill or no skill the resulting snapper have been very good to eat and our award winning chef is always happy to prepare it any way you chose.
The expected arrival of large numbers of Mahi Mahi and Tuna nearby in the next few weeks will be challenging particularly when caught on a fly rod but unlike their bonefish cousins once landed they provide delicious cuisine to eat under the stars on the middle dining deck.
