Key west fishing report 7/12/12

Key west flats fishing report by Capt Anthony Skinner

Carter and his son 12 year old son were my clients today. We headed out at 8am and hit a few spots for tarpon, in each of these spots we found fish but they were spread out and we did not get a hook up. Shark fishing was next on the agenda, we headed out to the gulf side and found some lemon sharks resting on a white sand spot. Lucas got the first bite, the shark screamed out line and about 15 minutes later we had him boat side . The lemon shark was around 6 feet and close to 100 pounds. Carter hooked up next and landed a 5 foot nurse shark. We then switched to jigs in search of lady fish, I drifted a channel and got into them good. We hooked a few lady fish and 1 black tip shark before it shut down and we moved. We hooked up and landed a few bonnet head sharks before we headed home.
