Repeat guest Gary Mellwig, Jr. brought his Dad Gary Mellwig, Sr. and his uncle James Geffear for his annual trip to Rio Colorado Lodge in September. September is always considered a great month because the weather is always great, and the fishing fantastic. The weather did not cooperate the first few days of the month. But these anglers were able to jump 10 tarpon, and bring 5 to the boat, the also caught 2 jacks. The best fishing day was of course their last day. And to add to the excitement, at one point they had a quadruple hook up, with the guide, and the 3 anglers all hooked into tarpon at the same time! WOW! Gary Sr. says he enjoyed his visit and will be back!
