LOWER FLORIDA KEYS FLATS FISHING REPORT

Jan checking up on the fish..

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..

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..

Sam and Joe having fun fishing in the Florida Keys

Today I fished with Sam and Joe on weeks vacation from a Philadelphia winter. I asked them what they would like to fish for...tarpon? permit? bonefish? All three are on the flats now.
Joe's reply was "We want to catch fish!" Sam had never fished before..
Boy did we catch fish... Normally I prefer to sight fish. Which is a lot more like hunting then fishing.. We went to a basin on the gulf edge on a falling tide and threw jigs tipped with shrimp and soft plastic.. Almost every cast resulted in a hook up. Mostly lady fish , which are a blast... they are closely related to tarpon and love to jump. We also caught some nice sea trout, snappers and jacks..

Several days ago I fished with Alan from Atlanta. Blue skies, warm water and light wind. Alan had fly fished most of his life for trout and was new to sight fishing on the flats... However even though it was Friday the 13th and he brought a banana(bad ju ju), he still feed 5 baby tarpon a surface fly.. Nice going Alan..
