Tarpon time in the Florida Keys...
My favorite time of the year....
Steve Smith from La. with his first tarpon!!
The weather and the fishing has been good.. Water temperatures are in the mid 80's.. Tarpon have begun to trickle into the back country basin, channels and channel edges.. we are on the front edge of the migration.. One day they are every were.. next day they are scarce.. it has been a yo yo the last couple of days.. But even on the scarce days we are finding a few in most of the places we look..
Tarpon to the boat...
Fished with Capt. Steve Smith with Still Water Outfitters today.. Steve guides a lot of people into trout and redfish in La. Today he got his first taste of sight fishing tarpon on the flats.. Steve got this tarpon on his first cast!! Nice Job!!
Nate from N. D. with his first tarpon..
This is the time of year when the permit start to move off shore to spawn.. still been finding some on the flats.. water temperatures are good and bonefish can be found on the flats now too.. But it can be hard to leave tarpon to look for bonefish..

The fishing will only get better as the migration progresses and more fish arrive..
I still have some days open in May and June.

If you need more days, different days, etc. let me know.. I have a bunch of friends that I fish with and would be happy to help you find some one to take you fishing....
