Key west flats fishing report 8/17/15

Great day of flats fishing with Larry and Kim from Austin. We left my dock right next to Turtle kraals restaurant located in old town Key west. We drove into the rising sun in search of bone fish, sharks and permit. Neither larry or Kim had either sight fished before so I spent the first 30 minutes brushing them up on the intricacies of flats fishing. The first spot we hit was rather slow but larry did get a hit from a bone fish. I went a little further east and found plenty of shark and bone fish, larry landed 1 of each before we were chased away from a storm.

The tide started to come in and the fishing really heated up. Larry landed a permit and a bonefish in quick succession.

I gave Kim a casting lesson. She missed her first 2 schools before she hooked but unfortunately lost the next. She pulled the hook on a nice lemon shark and the landed the largest bone fish of the day.
