Default Re: Moving from the NW to Vieques, PR

I have not fished Vieques but have caught a couple hundred bonefish in the USVI back in the 80's when we were running our yacht charter business.

I was faced with fish that were hard to see unless the tide was low and with turtle grass that would bury a weighted fly. My solution was to fish when I could see the backs of the bones. Then I would throw a small, un-weighted, size 6 - 8 weedless fly and hit them on the head. Worked well enough.

Did not have many permit or tarpon so can't help you there.

For barracuda use a teaser such as a hook-less Zara Spook to locate the barracuda and throw a fly to them.

Good luck.
