After a pretty blowy rainy winter, things are looking up.The Tarpon are starting to show in numbers. These are the migrating fish that pour into Key West the later part of April. These fish will stay in good numbers right through June.This is my favorite time of year. Not only do the Tarpon make a showing, so do the Bones and Permit. As well as Cobia. This time of year I like to get out early. Best bite is just before sun rise.So plan on leaving out around 6 AM. I would say April through June is the best time to fish Key West. Fly or spin these big Tarpon will put any angler to the test. It’s like hooking a fright train. The weather is beautiful this time of year. The fishing just keeps getting better. I still have some availability. Best to call ahead and set aside what ever time would like to fish. I am a one boat one Captain operation. Been fishing the flats for over 40 years. So I’ve been around the block. That’s it from my end.

Hope to see you on the flats.
