The first real cold front of the year has finally made its way down to the Lower Keys. The cooler water temperatures have pushed the large Barracuda onto the shallow flats where they can warm up in the sun. What this means for me and my anglers is the availability to pursue these magnificent creatures on light tackle and Fly gear in gin clear water. Its an experience like none other. Aggressive, fast, powerful and acrobatic are some of the words used to describe these trophy game fish.
If your tired of shoveling snow, do yourself a favor and get down here as soon as possible to take advantage of this unbelievable fishery!
Great things are happening here in the Lower Keys. As the air temperatures starts to drop, the fishing heats up! Bonefish and Juvenile Tarpon have been the target species of choice over the last week with good numbers of both being found almost everywhere I have looked. I am finding Tarpon throughout the day but are much more prevalent either early or late. Evening trips can provide endless opportunities at theses smaller versions of the "Silver King". Once the sun is up, Bonefish can be found cruising the shallows looking for a meal. A well place fly or live shrimp is seldom refused.
