                                    Jasmine with a shark...

 

It is Spring Break and I have been doing several father and son trips..  Today I got to take a father, Aunt and daughter fishing...  It was a blast!!  I love watching kids get excited and have fun catching fish..

We staked up in several foot of water and chummed in sharks... even a couple of permit tooo...

 Jasmine got to spot and cast to sharks for several hours..

I can't say it enough....  Take a kid fishing....  I still remember trips when I was a kid when my dad, grandfather and uncles took me..

Spring break has sprung!  Had the pleasure of doing several father and son trips this week..

                                                   

                                                     Father, son and cuda....

                         

                                       John is All Smiles!!!!

 

                                   

                            John got a bunch of nice sharks ......

We all had a good time... But the sharks and barracudas took a beating...   Kids love shark fishing..  What is not to like?  Throwing bait to big fish in shallow water... Blistering runs and lots of action..

Remember................  Take a kid fishing...

I still remember the times that my dad, grand father and uncles took me...

Richard hooked up to a 6 foot black tip shark... 

Is there another ice age on the way??  This has been the coolest winter I have ever seen here in the Florida Keys..  Air and water temperature have been in the 60's for too many days....  The last several days, I have been targeting sharks and barracuda  on the warm up flats.. 

Richard and his dad came all they way from Sweden to go flats fishing..  They were not going to let a little cold weather put a damper on thier fishing fun..  Richard also hooked a couple of tanker sized barracuda on tube lures, skated across the surface..  Four foot barracuda go ballistic when hooked in 2 foot of water..

Another front hit this afternoon..  looks like sharks, barracuda, ladyfish , spanish mackerel and sea trout for the rest of the week..  It will be back in the 70's on Sunday..  As soon as the flats warm up a little the permit, bonefish   and tarpon will be there too!!!

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!!

Florida Keys Flats Fishing Report: Nov. 14th....


It was bound to happen sooner or later. Our first major cold front of the year has arrived. Just after that we had some horrendous fishing conditions when Ida was passing though... 30+ mph winds and solid cloud cover. My friend Luke Andrews, a Montana Fly Fishing Outfitter was also passing though as well. So we went even though conditions were awful. It worked out, we fished leeward shore lines and had a blast. We got into baby tarpon, snook and redfish. Luke even tempted a blacktip shark to eat a crab fly..


Thankfully the winds and clouds associated with Tropical Storm Ida have past... I fished with my Friend Capt. Derrrin Doop today.. Blue skies, light winds out of the NE... water temps in the mid to low 70's.. We found a bunch of redfish in the first spot and a surprising amount of bonefish later in the day.. Also lots of BIG barracuda in the 4 to 5 foot size..

Redfish are fees sensitive to colder temperatures

Florida Keys Flats Fishing Report: Nov. 18th

Fly fishing for baby tarpon near Big Pine Key...

Last Friday and Saturday were epic.. Water temperatures were in the low 80's.. Bonefish were moving onto the flats with the incoming tide along with permit. We found good numbers of tarpon too on the top of the tide later in the day. Fished with Rob from N.J. Friday... Rob hooked 5 tarpon on his new tarpon fly..

It is hard to film and pole while on charter.. While fishing with my girl friend on Saturday we spotted a large school of Jacks on the gulf edge.. It was a blast!!! Jan also got shots at permit, tarpon, bonefish and barracudas..

JACK ATTACK! Sight Fishing For Jacks

Another cold front hit Sunday... Which has given me some time to work on my web site and video reports... Water temps dopped into the 60s.. I fished with Marten and Alice from England. They thought the weather was just fine.. We boated several sharks and snapper and did get some shots at baby tarpon and snook..
