My dad releases an 11lbs. 10 oz. bonefish while fly fishing. The average
bonefish in Islamorada weighs between 8 to 10 pounds. A big bonefish is between 10 and 12 pounds. Any bone over 12 pounds is a fish of a lifetime.

On my birthday, I went out with my Mom and Dad for the afternoon, and got into about +40 ultra-shallow tailing bonefish. We all took turns fly fishing.

I hooked up a smoker. After three bruiser runs while my Dad poled after it, we finally got it to the boat. It weighed 11 lbs. on the chatillion scale. This was a fantastic b-day.

Earlier that day I also caught a 50lbs. tarpon on fly rod with my brother-in-law, and we both caught 3 tarpon on bait.

Doug made some excellent casts, he just didn't have the bonefish gods looking over him that day.
