Spring is looking Great

The last half of February was a flats fisherman’s dream. We had warm water, light wind and clear skies for two weeks. After last February’s brutal cold fronts it was much needed. The weather brought all the fish to Key West that we love catching. I have been landing Tarpon every morning, often getting multiples. The fish are here and if we can keep this warm weather pattern it is going to be a great Springtime Tarpon bite.
The big Barracuda fishing has been over the top. They have been everywhere!!! Now, not all of them are going to be enticed by you tube lure, but with so many around and some hard fishing you will find some hungry ones. I had Al and Eric Shultz out last week and we lost count around 15 cudas boat side. Eric is pictured above with one of his many. Even the young anglers got in on the action. Jamison and Brett had a blast assisting in these two monsters!!
Permit fishing also reaches one of its peak times of year in March. These wary fish are going to be feeding on the flats this month fattening up for their annual spawn in April.
