Get ready for epic Fishing

It’s almost spring and that should make every one of you tingle with excitement.
Here in the Florida Keys, that means daisy chaining tarpon, mutton’s, mangroves, lanes on the reef, grouper season opening May 1st, sailfish hook ups daily and the long awaited return of our favorite fish the mahi, dorado, dolphin or whatever you call dinner.
This past month we stayed busy inshore placing second in the Lower Keys Cuda Bowl (women’s division) landed a nice amount of cobia south of Key West using live bait, the migratory tarpon are laid up in the backcountry and are eating in the shallow water mangroves. The permit are moving out to deeper water to spawn and the sharks and barracudas are more than plentiful and fun to catch.
If you are planning a fishing trip to the Keys, plan on April through July for any kind of epic fishing trip. Offshore, inshore, backcountry or flats. You can be sure to catch your target species and have a blast doing it. It’s prime time for great weather, fun times and great fishing.
