LOWER FLORIDA KEYS FLATS FISHING REPORT  
Monday, February 22 2010

                   

Shark Fishing is always an option..

The recent cold fronts have effected the fishing this Jan and Feb.  Cold water temperatures force the tarpon, permit and bonefish off the flats into deeper water..  How ever it is warming up this week...  Finally.  Back in the mid to high 70"s..  

It warmed up enough this weekend for the permit to start trickle on to the flats..  
 
March is considered PRIME time for permit in the Florida Keys.  The off shore guides report that some unusually large schools of permit are off shore..  the permit have disappeared from the gulf towers up north..   The popular word on the street is the cooler weather has forced them down here.. I certainly hope so..  Once the water temperatures rise, we should have some epic permit fishing!!!!
 
In  March we can still get cold fronts.. but If the weather is good we will find  big  tarpon in some  the lay up basins.  We also find juvenile tarpon in some of those basins as well.   If we get hit with a cold front, and water temps drop into the 60's we can always target redfish, snook, cudas and sharks...

                                                        

Last weekend Evan from Michigan coaxed several nice sharks into eating an orange bunny fly....

He said it was a lot more fun then sitting in his office!!

The big tarpon had started to make an appearance..  This is the time of year we  can find the front runners of the migration in some warm up spots on nicer days..  I count the days till tarpon season like most kids count the days until Christmas...  The permit were also making a big appearance on the flats as well, along with some bonefish.
 
However the last cold front... dropped our water temperatures again..  today it is warming back up.. but looks like another front tomorrow...  Fridays prediction is for lighter wind out of the east.. and starting to warm up.. Saturday looks like another front.. 
 
When water temperatures drop below 68 degrees.. tarpon, permit and bonefish leave the flats and go to deeper warmer water.. 
 
The good news is we can still fish for redfish, barracuda, ladyfish, snapper, sea trout, sharks and spanish mackerel!!
 
Winter in the keys..  I should not complain about our cold fronts.  Day time highs during these fronts are in the mid  60s and low 70's...  Lots of people up north will be shoveling snow the next few days....

Today is day 7 at the computer working on my new website.. Hope you like it!

The word from my fellow guides on the water..
Permit fishing has been good..
Seeing a few bonefish..
But the big news is..                                            

                                     

                                                      THE TARPON ARE HERE!

Capt. Gabe Nyblad and his brother got this tarpon today on a surface plug, while I was pounding away on the computer...

Makes me a little crazy..
How about you??
