Florida Keys Flats Fishing Report: Dec. 25th...

MERRY XMAS!!!!!!!

Clouds, wind and cold fronts continue to plague us here in the keys.. Must be winter..

Went out fishing with my friend Bo today... pretty good way to spend Xmas Day. It was cloudy, water temperatures right around 70 degrees. Winds were light out of the south.. good conditions to hunt baby tarpon, except for the temperatures being cool.. Surprisingly enough we found way more tarpon they I had expected.. The tarpon were very cooperative and the fly color of choice was white.

Florida Keys Flats Fishing Report: Dec 20 th....

It is winter here in the Florida Keys. We got hit with a cold front this weekend. North winds and the high for today is 72. degrees. Supposed to be back in the high 70's by mid week. Guess I should not complain, the east coast is getting pummeled by a major snow storm..

When water temperatures drop below 70 degrees it make it tough to find tarpon, bonefish and permit. How ever if it is cold and blowing here we can always fish for barracuda, sharks, red fish, sea trout and lady fish.. Beats scraping ice off the wind shield and shoveling snow..


The weather and the fishing had been excellent this Nov. and early Dec. Water temperatures in the mid 70's and light winds. Lots of big permit on the gulf edge along with some tanker sized cudas. My friend Bo asked me to show him were I had been getting the permit... I call it PERMITOPIA..
Here is his video..

Florida Keys Flats Fishing Report: Dec 12th....

It has been a warm december here in the Florida Keys. Highs for this week in the mid 80's.. Water temps rose into the low 80's two days ago.... no wind... we found schools of rolling baby tarpon the first stop. Jumped one and left tarpon to look for tailing permit.... found some permit, but it was tough. I did find a dozen or so 6 foot tarpon laid up in a winter warm up spot..... YAHOO!!

Sid & Jesse with another sea trout

It is winter here in the keys and conditions change..
Had a charter yesterday.... winds out of the NE, solid cloud cover and had too work to find fish... However we did find some nice snook and redfish out of the wind.. Earlier in the week under similar conditions I had the pleasure of fishing with Sid and Jesse... They were taking a break from winter up north and just wanted to keep the rod bent and lines tight. We changed tactics.. Instead of sight fishing we went out to the gulf edge and caught a BUNCH of sea trout, lady fish and jacks on shrimp tipped jigs...

Florida Keys Flats Fishing Report: Dec 5 th....

Weather and the fishing have been pretty good this week. South winds have kept the water temperatures in the mid to high 70's.. Fished the last three days with Steve and Tim from Minnesota. They wanted to get in some flats fishing before their walleye ice fishing trip.

The weather gods were kind to us... South winds and warm water.. We found permit, tarpon and bone fish, barracudas, sharks, trout and lady fish..

Tim and Steve were hard core anglers... day 3 we left the dock in the rain.. Some anglers would have opted to cancell. By the time we got to our first spot the rain had stopped.. We found some baby tarpon along a shore line.. Steve fed one a white soft plastic zoom.. We left the tarpon and hit the flats on the incoming tide.. Still overcast and grey, but no wind. Lots of sharks were moving on to the flats with the incoming.. we caught a couple of those, then Steve spotted a school of bonefish.. One good cast and it was fish on.. Later in the day we found some more tarpon , then finished up playing with lady fish and sea
Warm water + solid cloud cover + leeward sholines = rolling juvenile tarpon...
Rolling tarpon = fun
Just ask Tim..
