All the winter species are here. Even managed to sneak in a Tarpon the other day, so you just never know what the day will bring. But, one thing is for sure, we will have a great time out there catching whats biting.
Tarpon Season has come off to a slower start than we all expected. May, thus far, has been all about the weather. We’ve had lots of rain and heavy winds. But, there are fish out there when we can go. Late May and June are looking good. This is really the time of year that the weather should cooperate, light winds and clear skies, and that is what Tarpon like. They are very fickle fish and like to have everything just right, sorta like the fisherman does too.
So I am looking forward to some Great Tarpon fishing over the next couple months. Below are a few fish we’ve caught this past week here aboard the ShadowCaster. Give Capt John a call @ 305.587.7669 or drop me an email here.
Purchased in November 2017 is the Pathfinder 22ft TRS. This boat is going to allow us to comfortably take 1-4 anglers in great comfort. The Pathfinder handles the chop we have here in the winter beautifully and has plenty of seating and one of the most important features……SHADE. The style of fishing isn’t going to change. We are still targeting all the same species that live in the BackCountry water of Key West.
We are also running trips on the Maverick MasterAngler 17, like we have always done, so now Anglers get their choice of boat. Below are some pics of both boat and some of the fish we have been catching this November.
Summer has been great fishing. The winds have been light and the sun shining. The last couple of days Eric Mills (longtime customer and friend) fished with us at ShadowCaster Charters and we had a great couple days in the Marquesas Keys. Small resident Tarpon were on the menu and we jumped a bunch on topwater.
With the “slow tourist” time upon us mean very light boat traffic in the backcountry and some great fishing!!!

The end of April is here and the Tarpon fishing is finally showing consistency. We have all been waiting for the weather to cooperate and it has. May and June should be great Tarpon fishing!!!

The Fishing and the Weather have been great. We are all waiting on the Annual Migration of Tarpon to begin. Won’t be long now, Tarpon show up with the warm waters of Spring and Summer. In my opinion, they are the most sought after fish in the Florida Keys.
We have been having some fun hunting down Permit with all this warm weather. If you put your time in and fish hard sometimes you get rewarded. Above is a picture of the largest Permit ever to come aboard the ShadowCaster. Our 30lb bogagrip scale bottomed out!!!!
Still a few open dates in March and April, but not many, so act fast. If I can’t get you out with me, just call or drop me an email and I can get you hooked up with some of the other great guides we have here in Key West
