Key west fishing report 6/28-6/29/13

2 days ago I had a no show so I decided to fish with my good friend Capt Peter Heydon, we started out looking for tailing permit on the incoming tide. We spotted 2 tailing fish before we lost the tide and the sky so our next step was tarpon fishing. We fished an Atlantic side white sand spot and had a few shots but no eats. At the turn of the tide we fished a spot that usually is quite productive and sure enough I hooked up to a nice 40 pounder that I got close to the boat before I put to much pressure and broke off on the class tippet.

Today I fished with groom to be Tom Vallon and his friend TJ, We started out fishing for tarpon north of Key west. Tj was the first one 2 hook up, his fish ate a live blue crab and we landed him after 15 minutes. Tom hooked his fish when a string of tarpon came cruising by while we were looking for permit. We landed this fish and were able to get out of the water for the picture. Permit fishing was a little slow but we did see sharks, rays and turtles. We finally found a working flat and after a few missed shots we finally landed a nice permit.
