Tarpon Season 2018…..So Far

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.

New Pathfinder 22FT

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.

Back In Business

It has been quite a month here in the Florida Keys. But Key West escaped with minimal damage and is OPEN again and ready for tourists. The ShadowCaster made it through the storm very well. We had her tucked in behind the house and other than 500lbs of leaves and debris inside we are alright.

Thank you to all that reached out and kept us in your thoughts.

The waters around key west have cleaned up very nice and the backcountry is as beautiful as always.

We are looking forward to having you all return in the coming months.
