February 2008 Key West Fishing Report
What a beautiful month we have been having. The weather has been outstanding, with the average high hovering around 80 degrees. The fishing has been great as well. Tarpon have been making a strong showing in some of their usual spots around Key West. We have been catching really nice fish in the 40-70 pond range. The channels and basins in the backcountry have been holding the most Silverkings and the bait of choice has been a live fresh pinfish. With Spring approaching this fishery should only get better every day.
The flats have been producing a lot of Barracuda, and I have said it before, if you have never caught a big Cuda in a foot of water you are missing out. They just have it all-crazy fast attacks, high greyhounding leaps, long blistering runs, and a set of teeth that you have to respect.
