It’s May here in the Florida Keys and Tarpon here. Its the time of year we all look forward to. Early morning is the best time to try and find Tarpon rolling at first light. Darker fly patterns are the way to go in the early morning (black and purples) with lighter colors working better in the afternoon. Along with Bonefish, the Permit are starting to find their way back onto the flats so keep and eye out for schools of shadows pushing water across sand and mottled bottom. Cudas will be laid up in the current on flats trying to find an easy meal, giving angler a great opportunity to try and catch one. Best caught using something flashy and moving fast with a bait-fish profile.

January is here in the Florida keys along with the colder winter air and colder water temperatures. With these colder temperatures some of the more toothy critters will be more dominate on the flats. Cudas have begun to lay up in the current on flats trying to find an easy meal, giving angler a great opportunity to try and catch one. Best caught using something flashy and moving fast with a bait-fish profile. Some of our guides have been catching Speckled Sea Trout in the basins as the cooler water moves in using shrimp and jigs, and clouser styled flies on the bottom. Keep and eye out for Jack Crevalle pushing across the flats or hanging out with stingrays as they search for crabs and other crustaceans in the sand.
