Full on tarpon season here in the lower Florida Keys!!
The weather and the fishing has been inconsistent... one day it is great.. the next day we have to work for shots..
Good things come to those that wait...
Tarpon are in the back country basins and also moving ocean side.. waiting on the right edge, on the right tide can be productive..

Hunting and poking around for fish in the back country is a lot of fun too!
Kyle with the "Electric Chicken"
On spin fishing trips we have been throwing the Hogey.. In the right hands it is deadly and the tarpon are going out of there way to eat it.. it was the day before Easter and 14 year old Kyle opted to throw the Electric Chicken... he fed two tarpon that day..
Evan had the leader snap on the hook up /jump... the line flew back to give him a tarpon battle scar..

Once the tarpon trickle into the back country basins and start moving the ocean side flats... I have a a hard time looking for any thing else.. This is the time of year when a lot of the permit move off shore for their spawning festivities... Maybe I should widen my view.......
Earlier this week my friend Tommy Robinson sent me this photo of one of many of the permit, Joan Kelly got on fly that week fishing together.. Not only are they good at fishing togeather... there are also a crack real estate team... Robinson Real Estate
Need a place and info about navagatable waters, near by flats, marinas, fishing, etc.. they can give you the answers..
