Barracudas and a Jack slam

‪Patrick and his wife Allyson had a great day flats fishing. We landed barracudas, bar jacks, jack crevelle, horse eye jacks, mutton snappers and groupers.‬

Key west flats fishing report 5/9/16

I had a wonderful 4hr fishing trip with John Fredrick. We had a late morning start leaving my spot in Key west harbor at 9am. I headed east hitting a sand spot in search of bonefish, this flat proved to be the only 1 we would need, John had several shot before we finally land our target. The permit fishing proved to be a little harder and it took us 3 flats before john perfectly landed a crab in a school of tailing permit. Having 2/3rd of the flats slam landed we of course headed out looking for tarpon. Very similar to many of my trips I fell short of the slam once again. We also landed a very nice jack and had several barracudas eat but miss our cuda tube.

Key west flats fishing report

Key west does not look like it is taking part of winter, I am writing this report Christmas day and the temperature outside is 80 and the water is 78. The fish do not really know what to do with this, the most consistent fishing has been permit but the humidity and the overcast skies have made them really difficult to catch. I have tried fishing the backcountry east of Key west but once again we need some strong cold fronts to make this type of fishing happen. My last 2 clients landed very nice lemon sharks on our flats trip.

John Green landed this very nice barracuda west of Key west.

Key west flats fishing report 12/21/15

Fished with a lovely couple from Pa today, Rob and Rene. We headed east of Key west to do some back country fishing, I hit several channels and the fishing was really slow. I went to another spot that has been working well but we could not get a bite. I chummed a spot for sharks and that did not happen. We went to another spot on our way back to Key west and landed a few blue runners that we used for shark bait. It did not take long and a lemon ate the bait and shook the hook, the next sharks were spinners that cut our line, the last shark was a nice 5ft black tip that we released.
