Key west daily fishing report 6/29/12

Key west flats fishing report by aws charters

Ian Black landed his first tarpon on fly today, we headed out at 5am and our first 2 spots were lifeless. Our 3 spot proved money, when a feisty 30 pounder smashed Ian’s black tarpon fly. We landed this fish after several jumps and a few trips around the boat. The next spot was slow but we did find a large school of milling fish, we jumped 1 and missed 1 before the tarpon decided they had enough of us. I hit an island with a ton of bait and a few fish rolling but no great shots. The last place was where Ian landed his next fish a nice 20 pounder that ate a chartreuse toad, we also had another grab but the tarpon missed the fly.

Permit fishing was next on the agenda, we hit a bank that the permit tail heavy on the falling tide. It did not take long before we spotted our first tailer, we got out of the boat and waded over to the fish but spooked it with the fly line. This happened over and over again but that is permit fishing on a flat calm day.
