Another great trip to Los Roques! Great, stable January weather, gourmet food prepared by chef Mimo, and a great job done by Sightcast Outfitters owner Chris and his team of guides. We saw lots of bones and caught many bonefish on the surface, using floating minnow imitations. These imitate sardinas that have been wounded by diving pelicans, and the bones key in on this bait and readily take flies on the surface.
We had some shots at tarpon, but not in the numbers we saw last year. We had some good shots at permit too! There are some areas where permit frequent, and in a few hours of looking had four decent shots at big permit--one pushing forty lbs.
We caught plenty of 2-5 lb jacks that were crashing bait along the beaches, and even on some of the flats.
Los Roques is a great winter destination unaffected by cold fronts that can adversely affect winter trips to the Bahamas, Mexico and Belize. We're returning next year for sure!! Los Roques should be on every bonefisherman's bucket list.
