Key west flats fishing report May 1 shark fishing with the Amy’s

I am going to start this fishing report describing a shark fishing trip that I had with 2 of my favorites clients. Both of their names are Amy so I refer to them as Amy squared. Our last trip we caught tarpon and barracudas so they wanted to have a different challenge. We headed east of Key west in search of lady fish, wherever there are lady fish black tip sharks are close by. We found plenty of bait on my third location and we proceeded to catch 1 shark after another. Our total in a 4 hr trip was 3 black tips and 2 lemon. Giles and his farther also had a god day of shark fishing.

After the great day of shark fishing we decide to go barracuda fishing. Once again we headed east of Key west. We landed 5 barracudas, 2 of them were trophy sized. Chris Barbe and his friend Jim also head a good day of cuda fishing.

The Tarpon fishing has been very good lately. Chris Bye jumped 2 and broke 1 off at the boat. Ted and Theo Worthington jumped 1 and landed 1. I had another charter  that jumped four tarpon before first light but did not land any.

Last of all I will talk about permit fishing. I had just 1 chance to fish for permit and my client Tim Sherword land a beauty. I did spot a few bonefish while fighting this permit but was not prepared.
