 Tarpon season is here!

 As of now we are in the peak season of Tarpon fishing here in the Florida Keys. The Majority of the fish will traveling the the Oceanside flats where fly fishing is the most ideal in this situation. Tarpon will also be around the majority of the bridges as well which makes for the best spin tackle situation. 

 Currently as of right now, there are still Permit on the flats in good numbers. There are reports of Permit being caught offshore as of right now which is usual case of spawning activity is getting ready to take place. The majority of Permit on the flats will begin to move offshore for their annual spawn. With that said, there is a glimmer of hope for getting an opportunity to make a cast at one on the flats in the months of April and May. The Permit spawn should begin to wrap up in June which will bring them in the Backcountry.

 Bonefish are consistently getting stronger as the population grows year after year. In my opinion, With some patience required, Bonefish can bring some great opportunities for all levels of angling from the novice entry angler to the professional fly fisherman. I expect to see an excellent summer of bonefishing.

 Mangrove Snapper hasn't been my main focus due to Tarpon season. There is a chance of catching some nice ones currently right now around the bridges as their spawn is right around the corner in July. 

 Other common usual suspects are Barracudas, Jacks, and Sharks which can definitely save a day out on the water.

Charters are available. So plan your next trip!
