Key west flats fishing report 11/18/13

Another beautiful day here in Key west, blue skies and low wind. I fished with Rob and Christy from Colorado and we headed out west of Key west in search of barracudas, sharks and permit. The first 2 spots were pretty empty with a few wandering sharks and a surprise mudding school of bonefish.

My 3rd spot had much more life and we had shots at both permit and cudas, Rob hooked up first and landed a very nice barracuda. Christy had never fished before so after a short lesson she was ready to go, she missed her first 3 but landed the 4th which was a very respectable 10 pounder.

Time was running out and Rob expressed an interest in catching a shark so we headed to a spot on our way back to Key west. We caught some live bait and were hooked up almost instantly but we pulled the hook, this happened 2 more times before Rob landed his first lemon shark, it was a 6+footer.
