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!!
